POTENTIEL OF FLOATING WIND

POTENTIAL OF FLOATING WIND

Globally, there is an ever increasing need for renewable energies within the energy mix to limit global warming due to greenhouse gas emissions.

Offshore wind is now a main source of renewable energy.5

Floating wind will allow to fully exploit this potential, with important development opportunities.

DIFFERENCE BETWEEN FIXED AND FLOATING STRUCTURES

There are two different ways to install a wind turbine at sea:

NECESSITY OF GOING AFLOAT

Limited Impacts

Increased competitiveness over time compared to bottom-fixed wind 

There is a high potential of cost reduction over time. Indeeed the Levelized Cost of Energy (LCoE) can benefit from
