Floating Wind Farms At Sea To Create 29,000 Jobs – Crown Estate

The title of this post, is the same as that of this article on the BBC.

These three paragraphs introduce the article.

Plans to generate electricity through floating wind farms off the south Wales coast could create thousands of new jobs, according to the Crown Estate.

The property business owned by the monarch but run independently said the new industry could create about 29,000 jobs, including 10,000 in Wales.

It is leasing the space to generate enough power for four million homes.

Will Wales be the world’s next offshore wind powerhouse?

Wind power experts have said there is a potential for 50 GW of offshore wind power in the Celtic Sea and the BBC article talks of an investment of £43.6 billion by 2050.

The process has started, but will the engineers be able to tame the dragons?
