Project Website:

The countries of the Atlantic Area have the world's best offshore wind resource. There is huge opportunity to develop a viable industry to meet targets for Green Energy production. This project contributes to the transition from fixed to floating platform systems for use in deeper water and more exposed sites in the Atlantic Area.
