Abstract

In fact, the wind power installed in the sea is still very scarce, with only 1,500 megawatts in operation in the middle of 2009. Although the first offshore wind farm experiment took place in 1990, the facilities built up to now have been mainly pilot projects. These previous statements confirm the incipient state of offshore wind power, Anyway, in this moment this technology is being strongly pushed, especially by the governments of some countries - like the United Kingdom, Germany, etc. – which is due above all to the general commitments made to reduce the emission of greenhouses gases. All of these factors lead to predict a promising future for offshore wind power.
