Offshore wind is one of the most stable sources of renewable energy. Power fluctuations are minimal due to prevalent ocean wind patterns. And the need for standby generator capacity for peak load servicing is largely eliminated through accurate weather forecasting combined with remote databased control and management. This reduces costs, enhances network stability, and contributes to a more balanced power supply.
In Europe, and in the future on all continents, offshore wind is playing a crucial role by increasing the share of electricity from Renewable Energies, which are the targets of countries since the Kyoto Protocol, and recently reinforced by the Paris Protocol during the COP 21.
Bringing renewable energy for an increasing demand
By the year 2020, the installed capacity in Europe will be about 25 GW. Nexans is present with cable solutions in approx. 50% of these wind farms, and plans to further develop the business to extend its presence all over the world with ever higher-performing cable solutions.
