Today’s offshore wind turbines are giants, with arotor longer than a football field and with one 8 megawatt (MW) turbine generatingenough electricity to power more than 13,000 Danish homes. Bigger, longer,faster and more reliable: the trends offshore are clear.
In this stormy and remote environment, engineers aredeveloping innovative solutions to further reduce the cost of energy. Here’swhy we think offshore wind’s potential is as deep as the ocean.
