HQ Country
Ampyx Power develops Airborne Wind Energy Systems, harvesting stronger and constant winds that conventional turbines cannot reach. This opens up new deployment areas deeper offshore and further inland in remote areas. A team of more than 40 engineers is working from The Netherlands and Australia to develop a system with a rigid wing autonomous aircraft that meets the strict safety requirements of civil aviation.
