Wind energy is one of the most important sources of energy in the world. Inrecent decades, wind as one of the massive marine energy resources in the oceanto produce electricity has been used. This chapter introduces a comprehensiveoverview of the efficient ocean wind energy technologies, and the global windenergies in both offshore and onshore sides are discussed. Also, the classification ofglobal ocean wind energy resources is presented. Moreover, different componentsof a wind farm offshore as well as the technologies used in them are investigated.Possible layouts regarding the foundation of an offshore wind turbine, floatingoffshore, as well as the operation of wind farms in the shallow and deep location ofthe ocean are studied. Finally, the offshore wind power plant challenges aredescribed.
