The energy produced by the largest turbine in the world is doubled by a new contra-rotating turbine design.

According to a report from New Atlas, the Norwegian company World Wide Wind is creating a new form of floating, vertical-axis wind turbine (VAWT) that it believes will fundamentally alter and enhance how we harness the power of the wind. According to the business, their VAWTs use two sets of counter-rotating blades to provide twice as much output as the largest turbines now available. New counter-rotating vertical turbine doubles energy output VAWTs, in contrast to conventional offshore wind turbines, frequently have their heavier components near the bottom, with the exception of their blades, which means they have a lower center of gravity. Additionally, they don't have to pivot to face the wind direction in order to receive wind energy from any direction, which reduces the need fo...
