FOWIND developed the pre-feasibility reports for offshore wind development in Gujarat and Tamil Nadu (India). The reports identify key offshore areas where detailed wind resource assessment should take place off the coast of Gujarat and Tamil Nadu. These reports will form the basis for future offshore wind feasibility investigations, while at the same time supporting companies and government institutions in developing a better understanding of typical offshore wind project considerations. Key constraints are identified, combining both technological barriers and spatial conflicts. Known constraint parameters were modeled to identify eight potential offshore wind development zones for Gujarat and Tamil Nadu.
