SeaRoc, a firm which specialises in marine engineering, is set to develop the new devices for VertAx Wind a British firm.
VertAx Wind hopes that the new design will reduce the need for maintenance and help the government meet its ambitious carbon emissions targets.
Peter Hodgetts, chief executive of the SeaRoc Group, said: "VertAx is an exciting opportunity for SeaRoc to bring its expertise and experience to meet the unique challenges of the offshore environment and contribute to delivering on the targets for offshore wind."
Recently, the largest offshore windfarm in the UK, which will be housed on the Thames Estuary, was given the go-ahead.
