The Gulf of Lion in the Mediterranean will host several pilot and commercial floating wind farms in the coming years. It is therefore crucial for project developers to accurately characterise the wind resource as well as the turbulence, which corresponds to unpredictable and rapid variations in speed and direction.

Official Press Release France Energies Marine:

Characterising offshore wind turbulence to increase the profitability of future Mediterranean wind farms

Knowing the wind turbulence at sea: a necessity for the development of floating offshore wind in the Mediterranean

The Gulf of Lion in the Mediterranean will host several pilot and commercial floating wind farms in the coming years. It is therefore crucial for project developers to accurately characterise the wind resource as well as the turbulence, which corresponds to unpredictable and rapid variations in speed and direction. This phenomenon, which exists naturally, generates vortex structures that put a great deal of stress on the wind turbines and impact the wake between machines within the wind farms. In the Gulf of Lion, direct measurements of wind and wind turbulence are currently collected by a network of coastal anemometers. However, offshore data are needed to feed... ...
