Wind TurbineThe North Atlantic may finally be home to hundreds of floating wind turbines: According to Treehugger, Britain and the U.S. are set to collaborate on a multimillion-dollar floating wind farm initiative that will eventually generate as much as 7 megawatts of electricity. The agreement is years in the making, but could be operational by 2016.

As you know, they have to reduce the vibration to install Floating Wind Turbines on the sea. Because, it makes many kinds of problems! The vibration’s caused by wind, waves and external forces. New Floating Body Stabilizer for Floating Wind Turbines has been created in South Korea. The Floating Body Stabilizers generate drag force immediately when Floating Wind Turbines are being rolled and pitched on the water. Recently, this Floating Body Stabilizer’s using to reduce the Vibration of Floating Solar Panels in South Korea. You can see New Floating Body Stabilizer videos in YouTube. http://youtu.be/moO?q5B92k, http://youtu.be/nA_xFp5ktbU. Anyways, very interesting. Thanks.
