Mega-turbines and supergrids: What's at the cutting edge of offshore wind technology?

Global Wind Energy Council

Offshore wind turbines have come a long way since the first project was installed in 1991. One of the main reasons that the offshore wind industry has been so successful is thanks to technology innovation, which has helped to reduce costs and open new doors for the sector. Offshore wind turbines have become bigger and better at a rapid pace, with innovation driven primarily with the objective of lowering the levelized cost of electricity (LCOE).

In this episode of The Offshore Wind Podcast, Ben and Stewart are joined by Torben Larsen, CTO of MHI Vestas, to discuss recent innovations in the offshore wind industry, technology trends we are seeing now and into the future, as well as how offshore wind is coupling with other sectors such as Power-to-X and utilities to power a clean energy future.
