El primer parque eólico marino flotante del sur de Europa se erigirá frente a las costas de Portugal

El Banco Europeo de Inversiones (BEI) ha concedido hoy un préstamo de 60 millones de euros a Windplus SA, una filial de EDP Renováveis (79,4%), Repsol S.A. (19,4%) y Principle Power Inc (1,2%). La empresa planea construir y operar su primer parque eólico marino flotante (utilizará plataformas semisumergibles para ubicar sobre ellas los aerogeneradores) frente a la costa norte de Portugal, a unos 20 kilómetros de Viana do Castelo y en aguas cuya profundidad oscila entre los 85 y los 100 metros. [En la imagen, el prototipo -tecnología WindFloat- que fue probado frente a las costas portuguesas durante casi cinco años].
