Wind energy is the renewable energy obtained by harnessing the power of the wind generated in the open sea, which reaches a higher and more constant speed than on land due to the absence of obstacles. In order to make the most of this source of energy, large structures are installed on the bottom of the sea, equipped with the most modern technological innovations.
of Offshore Wind PowerBENEFITS
- Offshore wind power is renewable, unlimited and does not pollute the environment
- Globally there are more offshore wind resources than onshore
- When offshore, visual and auditory disturbance is very little, so much larger areas can be used. Thanks to this, offshore wind farms typically have several hundred MW of installed capacity.
- The ease of sea transportation, which has minimal load and dimensional limitations compared to land transportation, has enabled offshore wind turbines to reach much larger capacities and unit sizes than onshore wind turbines.
