ABB has delivered five new WindSTAR transformers to MHI Vestas Offshore Wind for the world’s first 66 kV offshore windfarm. With enough clean power for 34,000 homes, the wind farm will be located off the coast of Northumberland.

Eleven more transformers will be installed in large-scale offshore wind turbines at the European Offshore Wind Deployment Centre, a 92.4 MW offshore wind test and demonstration facility. This facility is located 2.4 km off the coast of Aberdeen Bay.
