SeaTwirl, Kontiki Winds To Explore Powering Oil & Gas Assets With Floating Wind

The title of this post, is the same as that of this article on

This is the sub-heading.

The Sweden-headquartered SeaTwirl has signed a Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) with Kontiki Winds to identify and discuss the opportunities to electrify oil and gas assets and other offshore applications, with the use of SeaTwirl’s floating wind turbines.

And this is the first paragraph.

Under the MoU, the two companies will explore new opportunities in the market to implement offshore wind into new and existing oil and gas assets and microgrid applications such as the powering of fish farms, desalination plants and/or other small-scale applications that currently are based on fossil fuel electricity generation.


  1. The current turbines are only 1 MW.
  2. They appear to be mounted on a long monopole foundation.
  3. My mathematical modelling experience suggests to me, that these could be very stable devices.
  4. I suspect they could be built into specialist equipment like a buoy with a light to mark something.

I suspect that there will be large numbers of applications, especially if the manufacture and installation of Sea Twirl’s turbines is an efficient process.
