Far offshore floating Airborne Wind Energy Systems possible and competitive

Airborne Wind Energy System (AWES) developer Ampyx Power has published a report with the results of a research into the offshore floating application of their system.

The cost of offshore wind power increases significantly with water depth, due to the increased costs of foundation works either bottom-fixed or floating. Due to its much smaller overturning moments, Ampyx Power’s system that generates electricity from wind using an aircraft flying 500m high, could be deployed on relatively small anchored floating platforms, allowing economical deployment of AWES in places where deployment of conventional offshore wind turbines is economically or technically impossible. The research, called the ‘Sea-Air-Farm’ project, was performed by a consortium of... ... More: Official Press Release Ampyx Power
