Offshore wind power is a growing source of renewable energy, with floating wind turbines providing a solution for harnessing wind power within deeper waters.
Whether opting for concrete gravity base foundations, or modular floating semi-sub technology, designing a reliable, durable and cost-effective floating substructure has proven challenging. Lowering the CO2 footprint of the project adds another dimension of complexity.
Ironically, the global surge in wind farm construction has fuelled the demand for concrete, and in turn driven CO2 emissions.
How we help
Greater longevity = a more cost-effective and environmentally sustainable solution
The service life of a concrete structure can be several times longer than similar steel constructions, despite the marine corrosive and erosive environment offshore.
Supporting local communities
Potential economic opportunities for local fabrication, and compliance with local content requirements, especially in regions with little or no steel fabrication capabilities.
