A major £150 million project to install floating offshore windfarms off the coast of Cornwall could become a reality within the next five years. Cornwall and Isles of Scilly Local Enterprise Partnership (LEP) has been leading on the plans for floating offshore wind turbines to be installed off the Cornish coast and another plan off the Welsh coast. There are plans to have some floating offshore turbines plugged into the Wave Hub off Hayle and power up to 23,000 homes. And it has been suggested that the floating wind turbines could be constructed in Falmouth which would bring further economic benefits to Cornwall.
