Deployment of hundreds of the floating platforms would be able to tap into the excellent wind resources far out in the North Sea, way beyond the depths accessible to fixed-bottom foundations

Do these deeper deployments also mitigate some of the typical offshore wind concerns (people not wanting to see them, issues with near-shore fishing routes and environmental impacts, etc.)?

Indeed they do Matt. The UK, like your BOEM, is also conducting strategic de-risking with stakeholders at the earliest of project stages.

The Energy Central Power Industry Network is based on one core idea - power industry professionals helping each other and advancing the industry by sharing and learning from each other.

If you have an experience or insight to share or have learned something from a conference or seminar, your peers and colleagues on Energy Central want to hear about it. It's also easy to share a link to an article you've liked or an industry resource that you think would be helpful.
