Wind Catching Systems designed a giant floating offshore wind farm

Never settle for a status quo, asking the right questions and always aim for better. That is the true spirit of innovation and That is exactly what the green tech company Wind Catching Systems did. The asked themselves if the basic design used in offshore wind production today was the right and only one? Was a technology based on an old Dutch corn mill honestly the most efficient method for offshore wind power production? The team behind Wind Catching Systems wanted to radically reform offshore wind technology and so they did. The construction named ‘The Wind catcher’ contains more than a hundred rotors stacked vertically within a 300-metre-high framework. The enormous 1,000 feet tall floating wind turbine array is capable of generating 5 times the annual energy produced by the world’s biggest single turbines.

Imagine: 117 of these smaller turbines will be set within a steel framework and mounted like a sail on a semi-submerged trimaran boat. The sail would be fixed to a rotating turret, allowing it to turn in the direction of the wind. Five Wind Catching units can produce the same amount of electricity as 25 conventional turbines and will deliver renewable energy for 80,000 homes at prices comparable to traditional fossil fuels.

Wind Catching Systems aims to deploy the first structure within the next three years. I can not wait.
