Project Details

Description

DeepWind is a 4 year project, funded by FP7 - Future Emerging Technologies, and runs from 1 October 2010 to 30 September 2014.
Offshore wind energy will play a steadily increasing role and calls for dedicated technology rather than being based on onshore technology that in principle just is transported to sea environments. The hypothesis of this project is that a new wind turbine concept developed specifically for offshore application has potentials for better cost efficiency than existing offshore technology. Based on this hypothesis the project has the overall objective to explore the technologies needed for development of a new and simple floating offshore concept with a vertical axis rotor and a floating and rotating foundation. Additionally, the objective is to develop calculation and design tools for development and evaluation of very large wind turbines based on this concept.
