SSE is set to decommission the national offshore wind turbine test facility at Hunterston in Scotland after six year of operations. Hunterston is home to a 6MW Siemens Gamesa offshore wind turbine and the Mitsubishi 7MW Sea Angel machine. Testing of the Mitsubishi turbine is scheduled to end this summer, after which decommissioning will start, SSE said. The process should be completed by year-end. Plans for decommissioning the Siemens Gamesa turbine will be communicated “over the coming months”, SSE added.
