Floating Rig Could Produce Enough Energy For 13,000 Homes


Windhunter, a Florida based company, is in the works developing a concept that would combine offshore oil rigs, retractable wind turbines and an electrolyzer to separate hydrogen from oxygen in water.

Several wind turbines would produce hydrogen by electrolyzing water. The hydrogen would be compressed and stored as gas or liquefied to be placed in insulated tanks then transferred by helicopter or ships.

The floating rig would have the ability to relocate depending on wind conditions and could produce approximately 45 megawatts of electricity which could power up to 13,000 homes.
