Great Lakes're one of the best place to install Floating Wind Turbines in the world. I think that Great Lakes Could be Home to Floating Wind Turbines.
As you know, they have to reduce the vibration to install Floating Wind Turbines on the Great Lakes, too. Because, it makes many kinds of problems! The vibrationís caused by wind, waves and external forces. New Floating Body Stabilizer for Floating Wind Turbines has been created in South Korea. The Floating Body Stabilizers generate drag force immediately when Floating Wind Turbines are being rolled and pitched on the water. Recently, this Floating Body Stabilizerís using to reduce the Vibration of Floating Solar Panels in South Korea. You can see New Floating Body Stabilizer videos in YouTube.
