Servicing Caribbean Energy Needs
The development of offshore wind in the Northern Gulf of Mexico began in 2003. Mr. Harold Schoeffler and Herman J. Schellstede formed a company called Wind Energy Systems Technology, LLC which was founded to provide wind farms in the U.S. Northern Gulf of Mexico. The nine-year effort has provided a substantial insight into the offshore development of wind farm facilities.
Considering these factors; the Coastal Point Energy Group and Herman J. Schellstede and Associates, Inc. have designed a system which can withstand the environmental conditions and provide a profitable venture.
Our meteorological tower has operated more than 1,800 days. Two hurricanes were encountered. The platform and tower exhibited no damage. The tower was designed to accommodate a category 4 Hurricane.
The Advanced Wind System provides a wind translating system which is significantly more efficient than industry standard units. The Advanced Wind System provides a reduction in overall platform and tower cost while providing a method to efficiently maintain the offshore wind facility.
