Floating wind power

RWE is developing solutions to capture energy offshore.

According to European Union objectives, around 300 GW of offshore wind power are to be deployed in Europe by 2050. To meet this target, offshore wind power needs to innovate and move beyond the shallow areas where conventional "seabed-fixed" offshore wind projects are being installed. This is where floating wind turbines come into their own.

This technological innovation represents an international development in which RWE aims to be a major player. With several decades of experience in the deployment of seabed-fixed offshore wind power, the Group has unique expertise in all the technical issues associated with floating offshore wind power.

RWE's ambition

RWE's ambition is to develop, finance, build and operate cost-competitive, commercial-scale floating wind projects. To achieve this, RWE is working on an international programme that focuses on supply chain management and the implementation of innovative, world-class projects. The Group is actively involved in the development of two floating wind demonstrators using a variety of technologies tested in different marine environments.
