StatoilHydro is building world’s first Floating Wind Turbine!

StatoilHydro is set to launch a full scale floating wind turbine that will open up a ocean-size opportunity of generating energy through wind.

A 2.3Mw wind turbine is attached to a Spar-buoy, similar to offshore loading buoys used in offshore gas mining.

The blades on the floating wind turbines will have diameter of 80 meters, rise 65 meters above sea surface, and also the floatation element will be 100 meters below the sea level anchored by 3 diffe
