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) Impact Assessment, IA.
2) Construction of 1:8 and Full-scale units.
3) Testing & analysis
Wind speed and consistency is significantly higher in deep-waters
Technology Readiness Level (TRL) is an indicator of the maturity level of a technology
New Brunswick 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
Potential Testing Sites near the Gulf of Maine and the Gulf of St. Lawrence
l'Université de Moncton and UNB will take part on important new research
Floating Wind Power is a source of competitive priced electricity
Sea-Breeze will directly and indirectly create thousands 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
Small, Medium and Large companies from NB, NS, NL, PEI and Québec
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.
