UK based high voltage engineering company EDS HV Group has provided grid connection system studies to the 50MW Kincardine floating offshore wind farm off Scotland's Aberdeen coast.
EDS was contracted by Spanish developer and construction company Cobra Group to carry out the studies on he Kincardine Offshore Windfarm.
EDS provided power system studies which included load flow, short circuit, fault ride through, reactive compensation and operation/contingency studies for the project.
Luke Bishop, EDS’s Group Engineering Director said: “Floating wind is becoming an increasing part of the renewables mix and we are proud to have provided our services and demonstrated our skills and expertise in the field of power systems analysis.”
The Kincardine floating wind farm is a pilot project located 15km off the coast, south of Aberdeen. It began generating renewable power in September last year with the installation of the first turbine.
