The world’s largest floating wind turbine has begun generating power off the coast of Portugal.

WindFloat Atlantic is being developed by a consortium, with Portuguese utility EDP Renewables holding the majority stake.


The project is connected to a substation in Portugal via a 12-mile cable and secured with chains to the seabed 100 meters below.


The WindFloat Atlantic project is expected to generate enough energy to supply the equivalent of 60,000 users each year.
