Nenuphar Wind

Nénuphar initiated a major innovation in offshore wind turbines, namely the floating vertical axis wind turbines.  

A vertical axis wind turbine naturally catches the wind regardless of its direction. Its contrarotative design allows to curb electricity production costs by more than 30% in comparison with horizontal axis technology. 

The Nénuphar’s onshore prototype represents a sizeable advantage to the company, since we have been able to carry out measures and trials on it for a year.
