Floating wind turbines at sea
Quite a sensation: Offshore farms built on foundations at depths of up to 1,000 m –Henrik Stiesdal’sTetra Spar project makes it possible.

Offshore stakeholders throughout Europe are discovering the potential of hydrogen
The Westküste 100 living lab centres around research and development for the use of offshore wind energy in the production of hydrogen, as well as on the exploitation of waste heat. Among other things, the green hydrogen will be used to produce climate-friendly aircraft fuels. Regional cement manufacturers in Schleswig-Holstein use excess CO2 for fuel production.
