15km off the coast of Aberdeen, Scotland lies the first commercial-scale floating wind farm known as Kincardine. Owned by Principle Power, the wind farm consists of five WindFloat units hosting five 9.5MW turbines and make up the largest floating offshore wind farm in the world.

The project became operational in 2021, and in the summer of 2022 one of the turbines had to be disconnected and towed for repairs. In May of this year a second turbine was disconnected and towed for repairs. While details of the repair are still being evaluated, both instances have provided valuable lessons moving forward.
