Specialist company considers ocean wind turbines
Could Lanzarote soon see two giant wind turbines installed in the ocean off its coastline?
This is the possibility to be studied by a specialist company as all the Canary islands continue their quest for clean energy sources.
Minister of Industry, Commerce and Energy of the Cabildo of Lanzarote, Ángel Vázquez (PP) recently received a delegation of the multinational company specialising in clean energy, Enzen.
“They are evaluating, along with its associate Seawind Systems, the implantation on the island of a pilot project for the development of offshore wind energy, extremely advanced from the technological point of view, ” the councillor explained.
The project would consist of advanced technology with wind turbines with two offshore wind blades, based on designs in which NASA has participated, which would take advantage of the wind energy of the Lanzarote coast.
In this sense, Ángel Vázquez stresses that offshore wind power “is not only a type of energy that does not consume territory, but also presents itself as a very efficient and competitive energy source. Due to the most constant wind in the ocean, wind turbines can produce energy for a longer period.”
