Wind Energy – Floating WInd
Danish PEAK Wind announces the formal establishment of its new practice group: Floating Wind Excellence.
This new expert group will work towards further commercialisation of Floating Offshore Wind within operations and asset management.
The industry is quickly moving towards full commercialisation of Floating Offshore Wind, expected to be reached by 2030. Recent investments across the world have already put several GW of floating wind on the development map. This is a clear indication that floating wind will soon account for a significant portion of offshore energy.
To support this growing trend, PEAK Wind has established a new expert team to provide tailored floating wind services within technical, operational and asset management areas.
The Floating Wind Excellence unit is headed by Ilmas Bayati, who has more than a decade of experience working with Floating Wind designers and developers.
“The last decade has been characterized by an exciting R&D phase, witnessing the development of several different floating concepts. A few early movers have commissioned their prototypes, currently operating at sea, to demonstrate the feasibility of such technology. Today, the question is not ‘if’ but ‘how’ efficiently the commercial floating wind farms will be operated and maintained in the future,” Ilmas Bayati said.
