World’s First Floating Wind Farm Test Site in Mediterranean
September 7th, 2012 by Chelsea
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.
