Problems and Solutions of Wind Energy Development and Utilization in Coral Reefs
To develop and take advantage of wind energy resources in the South China Sea's coral reefs, the paper discussed the situation of local wind resources, typhoon, corrosion, geology, wind turbine transportation and installation problems. The analysis indicates that the South China Sea typhoon-prone, serious corrosion, bad geology will cause many difficulties to installation and use of wind turbines. Authors believe that, installing and using small wind turbine in the coral reefs is feasible, but the suitable measure of anti-typhoon, anti-corrosion, transportation, installation and maintenance must be accepted, which needs a great deal of budget support.
