SeaTwirl prototype P3
SeaTwirl deployed its first floating wind turbine off the coast of Sweden in August, 2011. More info about the technology can be read at the technology page.
The marine environment is something you need to have respect for and the requirements of the techniques in this environment is very high. Therefore it was a great relief to see how well the prototype III could handle winds of up to 19 m/s in rough sea.
The Halmstad prototype could not be produced and tested without the support from other actors and experts. And the development, construction and installation of the prototype is made in cooperation and with support of the following companies, organisations and institutions:
Chalmers University of technology
Ingeniörsfirman Myrén & Co. AB
Halmstad Hamn AB
SP Technical Research Institute of Sweden
University of Gothenburg
Thanks for the support!
