OSLO (Reuters) - Norwegian energy major Equinor has designed a new floating wind turbine foundation it hopes to deploy at a Scottish wind farm project with a total capacity of one gigawatt (GW), it said on Monday.

Equinor would use the new design if successful in the ScotWind licencing round, it said.

At 1 GW, it would be over 30 times bigger than Hywind Scotland, the UK's and Equinor's first floating offshore wind farm, with a 30 megawatt production capacity, which entered operations in 2017.
