“Why is it when offshore wind turbines get larger they have to be split up into more components?”

 

Offshore wind turbines are the future of wind energy. Their ability to be built larger and capture greater winds makes their traditional counterparts look feeble in comparison. However, with this increased size comes increased complexity, which extends to its assemblage. Engineers now have to make new procedures to move around these heavier parts or split them up into multiple components to comply with maximum weight regulations. As such, the increasing size of offshore wind turbines is affecting their assemblage
