Offshore wind technology scan: Atlantic Canada
This report seeks to address certain information gaps relating to offshore wind technology, in order to help support the future development of offshore wind in Canada. Knowledge gaps that may require further investigation are also identified. At a high level, this report reviews construction methods, existing foundation technologies, operational considerations, potential environmental impacts, Canadian environmental protection measures, and the Canadian physical offshore setting. In general, the meteorological conditions, complex subsea geology, and ecological considerations in Canada result in a unique setting with various challenges for offshore wind, but learning from the industry developments in other jurisdictions provides meaningful insight into potential future developments in Canadian waters.
