X-ROTOR is a research project under the EU Horizon 2020 programme, which is working to develop a disruptive new offshore wind turbine concept. The project's objectives and work plan are outlined in the sections linked below, along with an overview of the participating partners,


The X-ROTOR project will develop a highly innovative wind turbine design to directly target cost of energy reduction and scalability of wind turbines.

Work plan

The X-ROTOR project runs for three years from January 2021, during which time, the concept will be developed through a holistic consideration of technical, cost, environmental and socio-economic impact aspects.


A project led by University of Strathclyde (UK) working with Delft University of Technology (NL), University College Cork (IE), Fundacion Cener  (ES), GE Renovables España (ES), and the Norwegian University of Science and Technology (NO)
