S1 has withstood the test of time and weather.
S1 sets a new benchmark for offshore windpower.
SeaTwirl deployed the 30kW floating wind turbine off the coast of Lysekil in July 2015. S1 has been connected to the grid and tested according to plan since its deployment.
The project was implemented by a small and ambitious group on a limited budget. S1 is one of the very few floating wind power projects in the world to have been launched and operated for a longer period of time. S1 has withstood harsh weather conditions, autumn and winter storms reaching hurricane wind speeds. This shows how robust our design is.
Although S1 is a small 30-kW turbine, it offers a practical solution in a number of situations.
S1 offers energy producing companies an attractive test platform for offshore wind power.
In remote areas that are off-grid or prone to power outages, S1 is an interesting alternative.
Many organisations are interested in reaping the benefits of renewable energy.
