Overview of floating offshore wind technologies

Andrew Henderson, Maurizio Collu, Marco Masciola

Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingChapter

Abstract

This section presents a high level comparison of the wind turbine options considered for offshore floating wind turbines. In particular, it considers Horizontal
Axis Wind Turbines (HAWTs) and Vertical Axis Wind Turbines (VAWTs), comparing their main characteristics in view of the very different nature of the offshore metocean conditions.
