Offshore Wind Energy

Sea regions are known for their good wind conditions and, thanks to the wide open spaces, make it possible to implement bigger projects which would not conflict with local communities.

At the stable, average wind speed of 9 m/s the annual number of work hours of the wind turbine installed on the sea at the full load is even 70-90 percent higher than in the case of the onshore wind farms.


This is why building the offshore wind farms is now the major direction of wind energy development in Europe. Offshore wind energy is expected to become the main cost-competitive electric energy source, suitable for the large scale implementation in the 21st century.

Europe is the world leader in development of offshore wind power, due to strong wind resources and shallow water in the North Sea and the Baltic Sea.

According to data provided by the European Wind Energy Association the power capacity installed in the European offshore wind farms at the end of 2012 was 31 percent bigger than in the previous year, i.e. it has increased by 1166 MW, and the total power of the 1662 turbines in 55 wind farms located mainly in the North Sea amounted to 5 GW.

The power of the wind farms under construction and those that are planned to be constructed is on the increase. Thanks to the technological progress made in the course of developing the offshore wind farms sector, the turbines of increasingly bigger power are developed, i.e. over 10 MW, which are installed within a larger distance from the shore (on average 35.7 m) and deeper (around 25.5 m).
