California: companies want to build offshore wind farms

The U.S. Bureau of Ocean Energy Management announced in April that fourteen companies have applied to build wind turbine farms along the California coast.

11 of these 14 companies expressed a particular interest for a plot of ocean near San Simeon.

BOEM issued a call for application in October 2018, asking for commercial companies interested in leasing place for 700-foot, floating offshore wind turbines along parts of the California coast.

The 14 companies selected have additionally been vetted by the BOEM, and found to be “legally, technically and financially qualified to hold an outer continental shelf renewable energy lease”.

Galbiati Group performs custom mechanical processing for the production of wind energy plants worldwide: boring, milling and drilling of components for wind turbines (frames, blade port hubs, rotors and stators).
