Because of the large scale at which it can be deployed, offshore wind has great potential as a significant source of alternative energy.
Designing Turbines for Japan’s Deeper Coastal Waters
Unlike the shallow waters of European coastlines, Japan’s deeper waters make it difficult to find locations for building bottom-mounted foundations. Pacifico is developing in a number of locations where seabeds are less than 60 meters in depth, allowing for monopile and jacket foundations. We’re able to incorporate technology designed for deepwater oil rigs.
Floating Wind Turbines
Floating wind turbines are a viable alternative to deepwater mounts, making it possible for locales with a lack of shallow waters to host wind turbines. The ability to be based further offshore also reduces visual pollution and accommodates fishing and shipping lanes. Pacifico Energy has several floating wind turbine projects under development, and the technology is quickly advancing to be bankable.
