Construction of the world’s largest and most powerful prototype wind turbine has been completed at Fife Energy Park.
The 7MW Samsung Heavy Industries (SHI) prototype turbine has been installed 50m offshore in the Firth of Forth. It will deliver enough electricity to power 4,800 homes.
Graham Construction was the principal contractor on the project. Leo Martin, executive director, said: “This project cements the relationships we have forged with Samsung Heavy Industries, Fife Council and Scottish Enterprise as well as our supply chain partners and allows Graham to continue to be an active participant and leader in the renewables and marine sector.”
