The Demowfloat project, supported by FP7 of the European Commission, gathers 12 entities of 5 different countries who aim to test and monitor the performance of a offshore wind integrated system, named WindFloat®.
WindFloat® enables harnessing wind power at sea in deep water (depths greater than 40 m) for conversion to clean renewable electrical energy.
This prototype project is located 6 km offshore Póvoa de Varzim (Portugal), at a depth of about 42 m. The closest villages are Aguçadoura and Apúlia.
In operation since December 2011.
