Offshore floating wind has gone from promise to reality.

However, 80% of offshore wind is at deep sea, and future-proof design and technology for floating wind is needed...


Few components with the generator below sea level

  • Two main counter-rotating components (blades/turbine, shaft, and mast, generator).

  • Generator at the bottom as stabilizer and counterweight. Rotor and stator counter-rotating.

  • Blades/ rotor: 3-dimensional trajectory (swept area as a cone). Struts add to wind energy capture and capture efficiency.

  • Direct drive (no gear).

  • WWW collaborates with wind farm developers.


WWW´s design has advantages along all key dimensions

  • 30% reduced weight and capex.

  • LCOE below 50 USD/MWh.

  • Scalability up to 40MW.

  • Increased energy density (reduced turbine distance).

  • Simplified supply chain.

  • Allowing for a large degree of local value creation and content.

  • The WWW turbines have less impact on wildlife.
