SeaTwirl receives EU patentSeaTwirl will be granted a patent for its divisible offshore wind turbine by the European Patent Office (EPO). SeaTwirl has already been granted the same patent in Sweden, USA and China.
 
The patent protects a solution where the wind turbine is divisible above and below the house that holds the generator and bearing, which means that the entire generator and bearing housing can be replaced just above the water surface by boat. It reduces costs for both installation and maintenance and minimizes downtime.
 
SeaTwirl is working strategically to build a broad patent portfolio. The corresponding patent was approved in Sweden in 2017 and in the US and China in 2019. The notice from the European Patent Office is dependent on SeaTwirl paying the required fees.
