Poseidon is a concept for a Floating power plant invented by the Danish clean-tech company, Poseidon Floating Power Plant A/S. The plant is a hybrid design consisting of a wave energy converter that also acts as a floating foundation for three wind turbines.

A demonstration and test plant ”P37” at a scale 1:4 was launched in the autumn of 2008 and is moored within an existing wind turbine farm in Denmark. The plant transforms wave energy into electricity through hinged foats, piston pumps and a water turbine.

In addition, a system where generators are driven directly by the foats through a mechanical system is about to be tested.
