The turbine is a key component of an offshore wind farm, used to generate electricity from wind energy. Offshore wind turbines are designed to withstand the harsh marine environment, with features such as corrosion-resistant materials and specialized coatings to protect against saltwater damage. They are typically larger and more powerful than their onshore counterparts, with rotor diameters ranging from 80 to over 160 meters and capacities of several megawatts. Offshore wind turbines can be mounted on fixed structures, such as jacket platforms or monopile foundations, or on floating platforms for deployment in deep waters. These turbines are an essential part of the growing renewable energy sector, helping to reduce dependence on fossil fuels and mitigate the impact of climate change.
