X1 Wind has developed a disruptive floating wind system to bring substantial cost reductions to the offshore wind industry, making it possible to tap into the huge wind energy potential located in deep waters
The European Commission has highlighted offshore renewable energy as a key area of interest to meet its goal of climate neutrality by 2050. Utilities and power producers require floating wind solutions to exploit sites located in deep waters. However, current technology is uncompetitive in price.
X1 Wind has developed an innovative floating wind platform for the offshore wind market with the aim of significantly reducing capital expenditures and levelised cost of energy (LCOE). The main objective is to make floating offshore wind cost-effective and untap the huge wind potential of deep-water locations. X1 Wind’s approach is based on a downwind-configured weathervane platform that makes an efficient structural design possible while minimising the environmental impact on the ocean.
