Floating Wind Power!

UK body Crown Estate, which is responsible for seabed licensing in UK territorial waters, has invited submissions for the development of floating wind farms which it hopes to deploy by 2017.

The projects will be used solely for test purposes and are aimed at demonstrating the potential of floating wind technology to lower costs. There are currently 3 grid connected experimental floating substructures and 35 deep water designs which are in developmental stages around the world.
