by Dec 1, 2020

Siemens Energy has been selected by MHI Vestas Offshore Wind (MHI Vestas) to deliver 114 66kV distribution transformers for the Seagreen Offshore Wind Farm in Scotland. With an installed capacity of 1,075 megawatts (MW), the wind farm will be Scotland’s single largest source of renewable energy. The oil immersed distribution transformers will complement 114 MHI Vestas’ 10MW turbines that the company will deliver to the wind farm located 27 km from the Angus coastline in Scotland. These transformer units will be built at Siemens Energy’s factory located in Weiz (Austria). The transformers will be filled with safe and biodegradable ester insulation fluid as an environmentally friendly and operationally safe alternative to conventional mineral oil. It is anticipated that the Seagreen Offshore Wind Farm will be operational by 2022/2023. Link to the news:
