Have you ever wondered how a wind turbine tower can support so much weight? Or why they are all orientated in the same direction? This is the nature of wind turbines, the giants of renewable energy.
In offshore wind farms, wind turbines are elevated over the sea level with different types of foundations, depending on the depth.
Iberdrola is taking a leading position in the field of floating offshore wind power by spearheading the European Flagship project. The initiative aims to demonstrate the viability and profitability of installing 10 MW+ wind turbines on floating platforms.
