Floating wind turbines: Why the pace of progress might come as a surprise

Europe has led the way, at least partially, because it benefits from large areas of shallow seabed. On average, those turbines are in water just 29m deep. This has made Europe an ideal nursery for the fledgling industry, but once you get to depths greater than 50m, fixed-foundation structures increase in cost and complexity. As a result, advanced economies with deeper coastal waters, such as the US and Japan, have fewer suitable sites for fixed-foundation wind farms. Access to offshore wind energy for such sites will depend heavily on floating structures to support turbines in such deeper waters.
