'A floating island is future-proof'
Within the theme 'Energy transition and sustainability' a consortium of four TO2 institutes MARIN, TNO, Deltares and WUR are exploring the solution of a combination of a partially permanent and partially floating island. Floating offshore islands can provide a solution for storage, energy processing and maintenance of wind farms situated far off the coast. But this is difficult in the North Sea where the sea is rough with a lot of swell. The possible solution lies in a combination of permanent and floating islands situated close to the wind farms.
