WindFloat Atlantic is the apt name for an offshore wind farm, which in two years will harvest wind energy from floating turbines in the Atlantic. The project recently took another critical step towards becoming reality when Portugal's ministers gave the thumbs up with formal project approval. Approval for the offshore wind farm's connection to the country's power grid is slated for next month.
The offshore wind farm will be anchored 25 km from the port city Viana do Castela in Northern Portugal, where three or four wind turbines will produce up to 25 MW. Both Vestas and Siemens have been rumored as potential suppliers.
