The Prototype was developed in Project which was partially funded by Europian Union Regional Development Fund [ERDF].

Project Development

The Technology

Ziel unseres durch EFRE-Mittel gefördeten Projektes ist es, die technische und wirtschaftliche Realisierbarkeit der patentierten Windbuoyy-Technologie anhand eines funktionsfähigen kleinskaligen Demonstrators nachzuweisen, um auf dieser Grundlage einen Prototyp einer schwimmerbasierten Windkraftanlage zu entwickeln und zu vermarkten. Wir erwarten damit den Nachweis der technischen, ökonomischen und ökologischen Machbarkeit eines schwimmenden Systems, einer signifikanten Ertragssteigerung bei gleichzeitiger Erhöhung der Verfügbarkeit und einer Senkung der spezifischen Stromerzeugungskosten im Vergleich zu Windkraftanlagen des Wettbewerbs.

The Technology

The goal of our ERDF funded project ist to conduct technical and economical feasibility of windbuoyy patented technology. This took place by means of a laboratoy scale prototype which was developed and tested in Germany. The tests have shown advantages of windbuoyy technology in reduing cost and increasing the productivity of floating offshore wind turbines in the rough seas and over deeper waters where use of a conventional fixed foundation is impossible by existing technologies.
