Floating wind turbines planned

A floating platform for offshore wind turbines is to be built in the Baltic sea.

Swedish power firm Hexicon announced the plans after raising SEK 11.4M (£1M) through a rights issue.

It said it planned to use the cash to demonstrate its innovative platforms, which allow turbines to be sited in deep water locations, and turn automatically into the strong winds found there.

“This new capital will enable us to intensify our design work and the formation of a Swedish consortium that will build our first platform,” said Hexicon chief executive Henrik Baltscheffsky.
