Keuka Energy, based in Florida, has completed and launched the first floating US offshore wind farm which has been paired with a Liquid Air energy storage system. The facility is a 125 KW 1:100 prototype version of a design that the company began to construct in October. The full-scale facility will have a 25 MW rating and is due for completion by January 2017.
Each wind turbine blade can drive up to 36 individual components simultaneously and are more powerful per square meter of swept area than conventional turbine blades.
