SeaTwirl to be granted a European patent

by Tom Russell in Windfarms 20/01/2020 SeaTwirl

SeaTwirl will be granted a patent for a divisible wind by turbine by the European Patent Office (EPO). The notice from the European Patent Office is dependent on SeaTwirl paying the required fees.

The company has already secured the same patent in Sweden (in 2017), the USA (in 2019) and China (also in 2019).

The patent protects a solution where the wind turbine is divisible above and below the house that holds the generator and bearing, which means that the entire generator and bearing housing can be replaced just above the water surface by boat. SeaTwirl claims that it reduces costs for installation and maintenance, and minimises downtime.

“We’re happy to now be able to broaden our patent protection for this technical solution that reduces the cost of service and maintenance by simplifying installation and replacement of entire modules,"
commented CEO Gabriel Strängberg.
