Floating offshore wind has an enormous potential to increase offshore wind generation in existing markets – and enable offshore wind in new geographies. More wind resources can be used and sharply falling costs are expected. The learnings from the first floating pilot projects are huge but the industry is still facing uncertainties and further innovations are needed at some points. The webinar gives an insight in floating design and the transition from pilot projects to operational floating offshore wind turbines.
- Technology convergence: The big headache
- Hear about the basic concept of offshore floating and adaptation to wind energy applications
- Get an insight into similarities and differences between seabed-fixed and floating wind
- Learn how the industry is working to be ready for commercial-scale deployment
- Learn about the design, material and the serialised production process of floating wind substructures
Get first-hand information on the current status of floating wind technology ready to be rolled out on an industrial scale and the learnings from pilot projects.
