The INNWIND.EU project focuses on innovative wind conversion systems (10-20MW)for offshore applications. The overall objectives are the high performance innovative design of a beyond-state-of-the-art 10-20MW offshore wind turbine and hardware demonstrators of some of the critical components.

Running time: November 2012 – October 2017

The proposed project is an ambitious successor for the UpWind project, where the vision of a 20MW wind turbine was put forth with specific technology advances that are required to make it happen. This project builds on the results from the UpWind project and will further utilize various national projects in different European countries to accelerate the development of innovations that help realize the 20MW wind turbine. DTU is coordinating the project, which involve 27 partners.
