World's Largest Offshore Wind Turbine to be Commissioned
The world's largest offshore wind turbine on a floating platform has departed for its final destination off the Portuguese coast of Viana do Castelo, where the commissioning of the floating wind farm will take place.
EU supports breakthrough wind energy technology in Portugal
Portuguese company Windplus will receive a EUR 60 million loan under the InnovFin Energy Demonstration Project programme to install a floating wind farm off the coast of Portugal.
Floating wind turbine project area extended
The innovative features of the WindFloat dampen wave and turbine induced motion, enabling wind turbines to be sited in previously inaccessible locations where water depth exceeds 40m and wind resources are superior.
