StatoilHydro plans to test their new floating wind turbine in the waters off Norway. It does indeed float, is also tethered by three anchor lines, and can be located in waters up to 700 meters deep.

Offshore wind is steadier and more powerful than on land, plus there aren’t NIMBYs to complain about them.
