Principle Power Inc.
Principle Power, www.principlepowerinc.com, is a US technology developer based in Seattle, WA, focused on the offshore wind energy market. Principle Power's enabling product, a patented floating wind turbine support structure called the WindFloat, permits the siting of offshore wind turbines in water depths greater than 40m, thus exploiting the world's highest capacity wind resources. Offshore wind installations in these water depths have not been feasible, to date, due to economic and technological limitations. A 2MW prototype of the WindFloat is currently operating offshore of Portugal and is the first offshore wind turbine to be installed without the use of heavy lift equipment.
