A floating wind farm - efficient use of 'space' I must say! Sounds awesome, hope the reliance on wind energy is strengthened once this project is completed and delivers as projected.
"A wind farm on a floating platform is the most viable option for Malta
as it can exploit wind force from whichever direction the wind is
blowing at the time. The platform may turn 360 degrees whilst anchored
within 30 minutes."
"According to a Project Description Statement, the offshore wind farm
will comprise 36 turbines set on a hexagonal-shaped 460-metre-wide
platform. Hexicon strongly believes the wind farm could be constructed
and running by June 2014.The 54MW-capacity floating wind farm
will generate approximately 9% of the energy currently provided by the
two existing power stations."
