Floating Offshore Wind

FLOATING OFFSHORE WIND

For a sustainable transition to an electrified society

We believe floating offshore wind will be the next main renewable contributor to the world’s energy supply!

 

The turbines have the advantage of being able to access stronger and more consistent winds enabling them to generate more electricity per turbine. Placing turbines in locations with optimal wind conditions enhances energy production efficiency, resulting in a more reliable energy source.

 

The platforms do not require clearing of land nor does it disrupt the coastal ecosystems. They will be placed at sea by using floating platforms that minimize the environmental impact. The floating offshore wind are expected to become an increasingly competitive source of renewable energy, providing a cleaner and more sustainable alternative to fossil fuels.

Stronger winds

80% of the best wind resources are found in deep water areas. The winds are stronger and more consistent over the ocean, hence the turbines can generate more electricity.

Possibilities

Floating offshore wind opens up new possibilities for large-scale energy production from wind power.

The future

The opportunities for floating offshore wind are immense and are projected to almost 270 GW by 2050 (Source:DNV 2023 Energy Transition Outlook).

Location

With floating offshore wind we do not have to consider water depths which enable wind farms to be placed further out at sea – beyond the horizon.

Small carbon footprint

Electricity production from floating wind power comes with a small carbon footprint that coexists with marine life.
