New Floating Offshore Wind technology

A new floating 1,000 foot wind turbine array, having double the swept area of a conventional 15 MW wind turbine, will generate 5x the annual energy production.

Turret and mooring using well known technology from O&G industry, ocean bottom impact reduced through high unit production. Integrated substation in “mother vessel”, connecting all units and export to land.

One Wind Catching unit produces enough electricity for 80.000 European households.

Five Wind Catching units can produce the same amount of electricity as 25 conventional turbines.

Utilizing the full energy in higher wind speeds and the multirotor effect, the Windcatcher generate 2.5x more annual energy per swept area than a conventional turbine. Conventional turbines limits energy output above 11-12 m/s by pitching the blades.
