Vestas has signed an agreement with WindPlus for the deployment of a wind turbine with a full-scale semi-submersible floating structure, called the WindFloat Project. WindPlus is a joint venture company led by the EDP Group with partners including Principle Power Inc. and several other entities. 

The contract with WindPlus includes delivery, installation and commissioning of a Vestas V80-2.0MW wind turbine for the project, which will be located off the Portuguese coast. Turbine delivery will take place in 2011. Moreover, Vestas will be the technology reference for the project, supporting the integration of the wind turbine and the WindFloat platform. The system integrating the V80-2.0MW wind turbine and the floating structure will be tested for no less than 12 months with a focus on performance, validation of the WindFloat and turbine control optimisation. In addition, commissioning/decommissioning and operation and maintenance studies will be conducted.
