The offshore unit is ideal where distances to shore or planning restrictions make onshore developments less favourable.
Groups of units can be installed together providing more power. The offshore unit has the advantage of only requiring a small cable to be laid to shore, ideal for sensitive areas. The single units have simple moorings and do not require the same design rigours as the larger offshore platforms. The unit is simply placed into a suitable casing and provided with transmission and telematics to shore. The unit can be submerged so that there is much less risk of damage from storms and boats.
An operation and maintenance service can be included in a purchase agreement.
