Although Horizontal Axis Wind Turbine (HAWT) is economical in onshore applications, its top-heavy structure is not suitable for the floating offshore wind turbine. This video provides the alternative concepts of floating offshore wind turbine. One is floating Vertical Axis Wind Turbine (VAWT) and the other is our concept of Floating Axis Wind Turbine (FAWT).
We are searching for the opportunities of funding and collaboration.
