London Marine Consultants (LMC) have been awarded a contract by SeaTwirl to perform the detailed design of the Spar for the 1MW S2 Floating Vertical Axis Wind Turbine.
SeaTwirl is a Swedish tech company with the vision to become a global leader within floating offshore wind power.
SeaTwirl’s unique floating vertical-axis wind turbine is simple and robust with few moving parts. This suits the conditions at sea and minimizes the need for maintenance, which leads to fewer downtimes and more operating hours. The first prototype was installed in the sea in 2015. Development is now taking place on the next full-scale unit of 1 MW installed turbine power.
LMC has over 30 years’ engineering experience of design and fabrication for offshore floating structures and provide a range of services to the floating wind market.
