Offshore farms play an increasingly significant role in EDPR's business, as shown when the company won the auction for the operation of Mayflower Wind Farm - a structure located off the US east coast, with an installed capacity of 1,600MW, which is expected to start operating in 2022.
Additionally, EDPR is also developing offshore projects in US, UK, France, Portugal, Poland & South Korea. In Portugal, the WindFloat Atlantic (first floating wind farm in continental Europe) positions EDPR as a world leader in offshore wind technology and further strengthen the importance of renewable generation in the energy sector.
A floating wind farm is a collection of wind turbines that sit on structures out at sea, allowing them to harness wind resources and generate electricity in places where water is too deep for fixed-foundation turbines. These innovative farms also permit equipment of a standard model and size further lowering product costs.
