With over 30 different floating wind system designs and concepts (some old, some new), special considerations are required to allow a pathway to commercialization. In fact, the technology is so new that no market has yet deployed it at scale.
This presents U.S. floating offshore wind developers a challenge, but also an opportunity to lead the world. Floating wind farm foundations are seen as key to the long-term growth of the U.S. offshore wind sector. After all, the country has abundant experience in the development of floating structures for the oil and gas sector.
However, experts say the biggest issue is how to cut the cost of floating structures as quickly as possible. A new webinar provides insights into how cost reduction might be achieved. To learn about floating wind systems, key markets, and expert insights about how to commercialize floating technology, join below.
