While floating wind developers usually look for low wave energy sites, Floating Power Plant’s device is meant to generate wind power in areas with medium to high wave energy, as the company’s hybrid technology aims to harness energy from both sources. In such sea states, the wave absorbers also come in handy as they improve platform stability, according to Chris McConville, UK General Manager at Floating Power Plant (FPP).
