The world’s largest floating wind farm is now officially open — and helping to power North Sea oil operations

Anmar Frangoul of CNBC reports on the world’s largest floating wind farm, which is powering oil and gas operations in the North Sea.

The C3 Take
  • Norway has opened the world’s largest floating wind operation nearly 90 miles off the coast.
  • The farm will produce 88 MW of energy which will power oil and gas operations in the area.
  • The production from these turbines should cover 35% of the energy needs of fiver offshore rigs, according to Equinor.

“While wind is a renewable energy source, Hywind Tampen helps power operations at oil and gas fields, the idea being that it will cut these sites’ carbon dioxide emissions in the process.”
