Self-righting, towable offshore wind turbines

WindFlip tows the turbine out almost horizontal – and then when it gets to the site, tilts it up into position – using only the weight of seawater to do it.

CleanTechnica has the details on this innovative technology to tow and install behemoth floating offshore wind turbines.

This is of course happening in Europe and not here, since the US still has no offshore wind. Which is some kind of total lameness on our part, isn’t it?
