Member - Seawind Ocean Technology Holding B.V.

Our products are floating wind turbine system made of full wind turbine and floating structure. Our technology was initially designed by the NASA and is inspired by the helicopter technology. Our prototype cost, without mass production impact on cost, beats the current market because our technology is simpler than the conventional 3-bladed technology.

About

Seawind technology can potentially lead to a revolution in the offshore floating wind turbine industry! Differentiation: 1 - While the floating wind sector is only in its infancy today, it represents the largest clean energy source of the future. Seawind has developed a unique turbine technology dedicated for this challenging floating wind energy market. This technology was initially developed by NASA and Hamilton Standard (today UTC) and is inspired by the helicopter technology. 2 - The heart of the Seawind technology is the teetering hinge (sort of Cardan joint) that allows to “de-couple” the rotor from the shaft enabling simpler wind turbine control (no blade pitching) and lower fatigue compared to the conventional 3-bladed technology. The result is translated into not only lower both Capex and Opex but also into electricity prices that do not require subsidies from Governments. Achievements: 1 - The technology is proved at 1.5 MW scale by an onshore prototype. 2 - Seawind has achieved the Technology Qualification delivered by DNV GL for our next turbine systems (turbine + floating foundation) which are Seawind 6-126 and Seawind 12-225 (first figure is capacity in MW, second figure is rotor’s diameter in meter). 3 - Signature of €42.5 million funding with a Kuwaiti businessman where the first tranche is expected early November 2019. 4 - Business scale up: We are working with Tier I players for the execution of the manufacturing, construction, assembly and installation of our turbine systems e.g. KPMG, Wood Mackenzie, Wood, WSP, PX Ltd. 5 - We have identified our prototype site options as well as our early production and assembly sites in the UK and in Portugal. We are in the process of securing a collaboration/agreement with these sites. 6 - With our electricity price advantage compared to the 3-bladed technology, Seawind has a huge market potential. We already have expression of interest from series of players both islands (e.g. UK, Mauritius) and power developers e.g. Equinor, EDF, Engie, EnBW.
