Suction bucket jackets
Suction bucket jackets form a key component of the EOWDC and underpin the facility's test and demonstration of innovation. The game-changing jackets enable faster offshore installation of the EOWDC, while also keeping noise to a minimum, as well as easier decommissioning as the installation process is reversed. As such, the technology will contribute to driving down the cost of clean power.

MHI Vestas V164-8.4 turbines
The EOWDC will see the deployment of the world’s largest and most powerful single turbine model. The V164-8.4 turbines each produce enough electricity to power the equivalent of more than 9,000 homes when running at peak capacity, meaning significantly lower operational costs, cost-efficient installation and built-in reliability.
