To meet the mandate from the European Union to get 10 percent of its energy from renewable sources by 2020. Malta is considering a proposal by the Swedish company Hexicon, to build a large floating wind farm. The farm would have 36 turbines situated on a floating platform that would be anchored to the seafloor by cables.
It’s estimated that the floating farm would provide 54 megawatts of power to the island. If Malta signs the deal, the structure would be the world’s largest floating wind farm to date. This for me is probably the first serious proposal by the Maltese Govt in order to reach the minimum quota.
