OFFSHORE WIND ENERGY – AN EMERGING FRONTIER
The quest for Alternative, Renewable & Sustainable Energy Sources turns to the construction of wind farms in deeper waters, as higher wind speeds offshore translate into higher power generation at competitive costs. There has been strong investment interest in the sector with several projects already announced around the world, including a $400 million investment in building a 4,000 megawatts offshore wind and onshore renewable energy capacity in New York. As of 2020, floating wind turbines for deeper waters are in the early phase of development and deployment which opens up significant opportunities in this new area for the energy and maritime industries.
