A floating wind turbine is a wind turbine mounted on a floating platform or floating structure that allow the turbine to generate electricity farther out in the sea, where the water is much more deeper and the winds are stronger and steadier.
Platform topologies can be classified into:
- single-turbine-floater (one wind turbine mounted on a floating structure)
- multiple turbine floaters (multiple wind turbines mounted on a floating structure)
Commercial conceptions include brands and companies like ARCADIS, BLUE H, HYWIND, MUFOW (Henderson), SWAY, WINDSEA and KUSAN.
