Offshore wind industry poised for global success

23 Oct 2013
An analysis report released today by GL Garrad Hassan consultancy has cited floating turbines as the driving force behind the potential for the offshore wind industry to boom globally.
The floating turbines have the potential to harness the wind potential in previously off-limits areas as well as improvements in technology which can help to mitigate the increased costs of wind farms in deeper water and situated further from the coast.
GL Garrad Hassan also highlighted that integrated turbine systems, multi-contracting approaches to project development and maintaining an experienced workforce are also key to the industry’s future.
