Skywind GmbH

SkyWind is shaping the future of on- and offshore wind energy with game-changing technologies to drive down the cost of offshore wind power. Reducing Levelized Cost of Energy (LCoE) is the main driver in developing the SkyWind turbine.

SkyWind develops technology that will produce renewable energy in a safe and low-cost manner.

SkyWind has developed a turbine solution where the owner/operator perspective has been in focus. Experience of developing and operating wind farms in Germany during the last 20 years has been a basis.

A full-scale turbine was erected in 2015 and is the basis for further technical and commercial development.
