The Sea-Breeze project is developing a key offshore floating wind platform technology, which will be produced for export, create a local supply chain and grow into a strong Canadian brand
Sea-Breeze Tech consists of two components: the floater (TRL 6), and its construction method (TRL 9)
1) Construction of scaled, and of full size units.
2) Pilot Park of > 100 MW.
Wind speed and consistency is significantly higher in deep-waters
Technology Readiness Level (TRL) is an indicator of the maturity level of a technology
Nova Scotia offers an attractive combination of a modern, 12 month, deep water port, proximity to the United States, where the offshore wind market is growing the fastest, and capable local industrial partners
New offshore wind farms expected in North-East USA
Cape Breton and The Strait Area have superb wind, and port infrastructure
Experienced marine operators, and deep-water port
The Province of Nova Scotia is creating a welcoming environment for Offshore Wind Energy technology development
Sea-Breeze Tech Demo will directly and indirectly create hundreds of sustainable, high paying jobs for both skilled and unskilled labor, promoting growth in the Province and development of Canada’s green energy sector
Well-paying jobs in consulting, manufacturing, and services
Academic institutions ready to train future workers
Suppliers from Cape Breton and the Strait Area make over 70% of the Supply Chain
Immediate and long-term benefits
A clean environment and a strong economy go hand in hand.
We believe in including early, inclusive and meaningful public engagement.
Decisions should be based on the best available science and Indigenous knowledge; adhering to the principles of scientific integrity, honesty, objectivity, thoroughness and accuracy; and sustainability for present and future generations.
