- 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.
- 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.
