Wind Energy – Floating Wind
Floating wind turbine developer SeaTwirl has confirmed that it has received its first ever commercial order.
The purchase order applies to a bid for a new wind turbine application in the North Sea.
Earlier this year, the Sweden-based firm announced that, together with Kontiki Winds, it had signed a Memorandum of Understanding to identify and explore opportunities to electrify offshore Oil and Gas assets and other offshore applications, using SeaTwirl’s floating wind turbines.
Through this collaboration, SeaTwirl, founded in 2012, has secured a purchase order for developing a proposal including a smaller SeaTwirl wind turbine, specifically intended to electrify asset operations offshore.
The model, currently called S1,5, is a smaller capacity turbine but designed to withstand some of the most demanding conditions in the North Sea.
