TouchWind is developing a wind turbine for offshore installation that is not anchored in the ground with a mast but floats on the sea atop a cylindrical structure. The floating platform which the turbine is mounted on is anchored to the seabed with a chain. The infrastructure for the transport of electricity is also connected to that anchor on the seabed.
