SeaTwirl Floating Vertical Axis Turbine Awarded EU Patent (Int'l.)
Date: 2020-01-22
Following up on our Jan. 10, 2018 coverage, SeaTwirl AB, the Swedish developer of a floating vertical axis wind turbine with folding blades, is reporting receipt of a patent from the European Patent Office (EPO) for its divisible offshore wind turbine. The European patent is in addition to earlier patents issued in Sweden, the USA and China.

The turbine is mounted on a buoyant underwater structure anchored in deep water. The wind turbine, tower and underwater structure are permanently joined and rotate as a single unit with water carrying the full weight of the structure which, similar to a sailing boat, is stabilized by the keel. The unit does not require a yaw system for the turbine to face the wind nor a pitching mechanism to turn the rotor blades. Accordingly, fewer moving parts incur lower maintenance and operating costs. The SeaTwirl S2, 1MW turbine is expected to be available in 2020. (Source: SeaTwirl, Offshore Eng., 20 Jan., 2020) Contact: SeaTwirl AB, Gabriel Strangberg, CEO, Managing Director, +46 70-480 55 29,
