Floating offshore wind has huge untapped potential. Massive amounts of wind resources exist in deep waters (+60m) where an estimated potential capacity of 4000 GW could be installed.

Cost remains a major barrier to deployment, however. Innovative responses to key challenges on mooring and anchoring technology, power cables interconnection and O&M strategies are essential to pave the way for cost-competitive floating offshore wind.

This workshop-style webinar explores some of the solutions to these challenges together with experts, practitioners and industry leaders providing insights from the COREWIND project (COst REduction and Increase Performance of floating WIND technology).
