testresults

Modeltime

Footage from the modeltest (scale 1:60) of the design storm

Realtime

Footage scaled to refect full-scale motions. During the design storm (Hs 11m) the maximum once per 3h accelerations are less then 2 m/s2 in the nacelle.

next step

Prototype

The next step on the road to realization is the production and operation of a prototype. Maridea is building a consortium to complete this phase.
Furthermore discussions are ongoing with investors to develop a pilot farm.
