2MW vertical axis prototype under construction | Windpower Monthly
FRANCE: The world's largest vertical axis turbine is set to enter its first trial stage next month as part of the 2MW Vertiwind floating offshore turbine project.

The 2MW Vertiwind project is being led by Lille-based designer Nenuphar, Technip and EDF EN, and has been underway since January last year when a 35kW prototype was launched.

Nenuphar founder Charles Smadja said the company was planning to test the turbine in three stages. The first one, in January, would be on the generator and electrical systems which will be housed in the tower.
