Dutch company Blue H Technologies BV has formed BLUE H France, a company that will focus on developing a prototype of deep-water, offshore wind turbine.

After having launched its first floating 80 kW offshore wind turbine in southern Italy at the end of 2007, Blue H now wants to build a full size 3.5 MW prototype. Deepwater innovative wind energy technology (Diwet) will be used, and the design will be based on the tension leg platform concept. With this technology of anchored platform, structures are lighter, easier to install and can be located further offshore than traditional offshore wind farms, according to the company.

Blue H France has established a partnership with several businesses and research units in western France to design, build and install the Diwet prototype.
