Portugal: First Floating Offshore Wind Turbine with Ormazabal Switchgear

The WidnFloat is the pioneer turbine worldwide installed on a floating foundation.

In addition to being the first offshore wind turbine in Portugal, this is the first offshore wind turbine to be installed without the use of heavy-lift vessels or piling equipment at sea, according to the companies involved in the project.

The WindFloat is equipped with a Vestas V80-2.0 MW wind turbine and Ormazabal CGMCOSMOS cubicles. The system is located 5 km off the coast of Agucadoura, Portugal.
