A new way to drive offshore wind development
To keep temperature increases below 1.5 °C, the EU estimates between 240 and 450 GW of offshore wind power is needed by 2050. An estimated 30 % of future electricity demand will be supplied by offshore wind. However, current space available in shallow waters imposes a limit of 112 GW. The EU-funded ARCHIME3 project will make it easier to install new floating platforms. Specifically, it has patented a new floating technology that enables the safest and most efficient (time, costs and performance) installation of turbines in deep waters. ARCHIME3 is currently the only technology that will efficiently and safely enable the installation of the largest turbines in deep waters.
