Norwegian oil giant Equinor is poised to take its 30MW Hywind Scotland floating wind farm offline for maintenance for up to four months this year.

The project is made up of five Siemens Gamesa turbines, which were commissioned in October 2017. All five require major component work, which will be carried out during the summer at Gulen Port in Norway.

Hywind Scotland is the world’s first commercial-scale floating wind farm.
