First 12 MW Typhoon-Resistant Offshore Wind Turbine

The term 'game-changer' is often banded about but having shared my knowledge on a global basis, I do know how innovation can sometimes address otherwise intractable problems.

In this instance MingYang Smart Energy has produced its first MySE 12 MW hybrid drive offshore wind turbine at the Guangdong Shanwei manufacturing facility in China. The model has been designed to withstand super typhoons of 78.82 m/s.

Trials are ongoing in the United States with the Gulf of Mexico and an eye-popping 500 GW development prize in mind:

I expect these and similar developments to open up areas in the Far East and Gulf of Mexico and would have been great to have had this technology for Islay a decade or so ago. The Floating varieties are a couple of years behind in development but are likely to be especially suited to the new areas of development
