Here’s another approach for offshore wind generation, which I believe will take over as the leading source of new generation in 5 or 10 years.
That looks quite interesting. I would be fascinated to see how the umbilical cord used to return power to the shore would cope with the torsion and flexing. Would each windmill have it’s own connection to the shore. Or is there a platform of some kind that acts as a substation to take power from a group of windmills for onward transmission? Just interested.
Sway has a website. have not investigated to find the answers to these questions.
Thanks for that. I’ve had a look and there’s no reference to how the power is sent back etc. Brilliant idea all the same.
Offshore turbines plug in to a substation which ups the voltage for transmission to shore. http://www.londonarray.com/the-project/offshore/substations/
No idea how they deal with rotation of this turbine, but I doubt it involves the cable being twisted. Some clever engineering gizmo.
P.S. Windmills *mill*, wind turbines produce electricity. /pedant
