Eon plots airborne wind route

Renews:  Eon is collaborating with Dutch company Ampyx Power to develop the latter’s airborne wind energy system.
The agreement aims to further the development of the system towards commercial deployment.

Ampyx said Eon has committed to development and, if successful, construction and operation of a demonstration site for the airborne wind energy concept in County Mayo in Ireland.

The demo will be used for testing, verification and continuous operation of Ampyx Power’s system and its subsequent 2MW airborne wind energy system, the company said.

Ampyx said the 2MW system will be “tailored to repower the first generation offshore wind parks once the service life has come to an end”.

It started construction of the demo last year and in order to finance activities towards commercialisation has launched a new crowdfunding campaign targeting investments of €2.5m.  Full Article:
