Why to choose floating technology
Removing depth water barriers
STATE OF THE ART
As a consequence the biggest advantage of floating wind is that it gives access to the highest resource sites.
Other key advantage of most floating wind solutions is the capacity to allow simplified installation avoiding expensive vessels. This leads to a cost reduction which will be particularly important for future large wind turbines.
Regarding environmental impact, it can be considered lower than bottom fixed solutions due to the fixation method:
- Minimum occupation of the seabed.
- Complete removal at end of life.
