According to the company, the selected wind turbine, a 4.3 MW SWT-DD-120 from Siemens Gamesa, fits Floating Power Plant’s requirements for a well-established technology.

The wind turbine generator will play a crucial role in the company’s full-scale demonstrator project, showcasing “an unprecedented” integration of wind power, wave power, and hydrogen storage technologies, said the Danish renewable energy technology developer.

“It is precisely what we need for this project. This wind turbine generator aligns with the site requirements, and its direct-drive technology is a perfect fit for our demonstrator platform,” said Laura Volta Roqueta, senior wind turbine engineer at Floating Power Plant.
