Dehumidification needed to avoid nervous sweats in offshore wind

The offshore wind industry is overlooking the harsh realities of ocean environments, according to Cotes, a dehumidification company which implores that onshore nacelle technology cannot simply be dragged and dropped in offshore turbines, without first considering the impacts of moist, salty air. Costs are plummeting within offshore wind. As we highlighted in Rethink Energy’s offshore wind forecast to 2040, furthering this will likely focus on research and development within subsea or floating structures, maritime infrastructure, and expanding turbine diameter, but making use of the onshore wind industry’s maturity will provide an established route to LCOE reduction – after all, the turbine technology is essentially the same. This technology transfer from onshore to offshore has and will continue to focus on…
