When it comes to emerging offshore wind markets, Taiwan, India and the U.S. have been in the spotlight over the last few years and especially in 2018. Nevertheless, a few new areas made the offshore wind map over the last year, beyond those already well known and ready for takeoff. Offshore wind is not only expanding as new markets emerge globally, but also as the countries with existing offshore wind farms and those under development already eye earmarking further areas where offshore wind turbines could be installed.
BLIX Consultancy and Pondera Consult have carried out a study on the Levelized Cost of Energy (LCoE) of future offshore wind farm sites in the Netherlands.

This year Offshore WIND Magazine will be looking at the offshore wind hub ports. These are ports that have either become newly established as offshore wind ports or existing ports already serving the industry that grown beyond most people’s expectations in the past seven years. These hubs can be either a single port or a group of neighbouring ports able to provide the complete base support for range of services from project pre-construction surveys to wind farm operation and maintenance.
