The wind industry is expected to develop rapidly because of the need for clean energy. In doing so, the industry is looking for more efficient ways to produce more energy through conversion of wind force into electricity. To achieve this, offshore substations of the near future will be built further into the ocean and will be larger
Building strong structures might lead to heavy substations which might decrease the efficient operation of the substation where other heavy machinery might be present. Since floating substations are becoming more common, installing lightweight architectural compound is important. In this article I will describe how to reduce weight and costs for offshore wind platforms.
