As a relatively new concept combining floating wind turbine (FWT) and wave energy converter (WEC), Hybrid wind-wave energy system (HWWES) is still on its initial stage. The reason for this is that both WEC and FWT platforms have many subcategories but there is no common agreement about how to combine them together. Furthermore, as offshore device system, HWWES has special design requirement. A good HWWES should properly integrate selected WEC and FWT platform, improve overall performance and be cost effective. Not all kinds of FWT platforms and WECs are suitable to be applied for HWWES design. However, there is still no answer to question ‘which type of WEC or FWT is more suitable for HWWES’. This paper overviews several existing HWWESs.
