Albatross Technology is developing a new type of floating wind turbine: Floating Axis Wind Turbine
We are developing a new concept of a floating offshore wind turbine. Our solution is to mount a vertical axis wind turbine on a circular cylindrical float. Point is that the cylindrical float rotates with the turbine. Power take-off from the turbine is by multiple electric generators installed on a ring-shaped moored stage surrounding the cylindrical float.
