Just off the coast of Yorkshire, UK, the world’s largest offshore wind farm just installed 174 turbines totaling 1.22 GW in less than a year. Amazing.

In celebration of this milestone, I wanted to share a video that tells the story of the first offshore wind farm. It was built in Hywind Scotland. The 30 MW pilot park was a great success. It paved the way for the Yorkshire, UK project and many more slated for the near future. This is a truly exciting technology for renewable energy.

Below is a mini documentary telling the story of the Hywind project. And below that are screenshots from the video showing some stunning images of the project.
