World’s First Floating Wind Farm Test Site in Mediterranean

 
In the beautiful blue waters of the Mediterranean Sea, the world’s first test site with multiple floating vertical-axis wind turbines is going to be installed. The offshore wind project is called INFLOW — Industrialized setup of a floating offshore wind turbine — and is funded by the European Commission’s Seventh Framework Programme.

The INFLOW project is an update of a current wind farm that has been running for four years. The goal is to increase the project’s output to 26 MW, with an eventual target of 150 MW by 2018.
