    UK TO FLOAT WIND

    UK Crown Estate to offer up deep water sites

    James Quilter, 26 April 2012 (Windpower Monthly)

    “The Crown Estate, which controls the UK's territorial waters…plans to open up test sites in deeper waters in the North Sea… as part of the UK's study into lowering the cost of energy for offshore wind.

    “The move would mean the development of floating platforms, which are being trialled by companies including Siemens and Statoil (Hywind), and Vestas and EDP (WindFloat).”

    “It comes as the US and UK signed a deal…to co-operate on the development of floating platforms for wind turbines. “In October,the UK's Energy Technologies Institute (ETI) earmarked £25 million (€28.7 million) for an offshore floating-turbine pilot. It is seeking more funding from other partners before the project launches in 2016…The ETI plans to design, construct and install the pilot at a relatively near-shore site with wind speeds of up to 10m/s at 60- to 100-metre water depth…”

    Floating Wind Turbine is one of the best solutions for UK and US. U.K has more install places around its shores than any other in the world. US has Atlantic Coast. As you know, they have to reduce the vibration to install Floating Wind Turbines on the sea. Because, it makes many kinds of problems! The vibration’s caused by wind, waves and external forces. New Floating Body Stabilizer for Floating Wind Turbines has been created in South Korea. The Floating Body Stabilizers generate drag force immediately when Floating Wind Turbines are being rolled and pitched on the water. Recently, this Floating Body Stabilizer’s using to reduce the Vibration of Floating Solar Panels in South Korea. You can see New Floating Body Stabilizer videos in YouTube. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=moO--q5B92k, http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=nA_xFp5ktbU&feature=youtu.be. Anyways, very interesting. Thanks.
