Current Windmills       Offshore wind turbines are not new They typically stand on towers that are driven deep into the ocean floor This can only take place if the water is less than 50 feet This means that the turbine is visible from land These new turbines will take advantage of stronger winds and will not be visible from land This can happen because of the flotation device and the anchor system Source: http://www.projectsmonitor.com/detailnews.asp?newsid=10059 .
