Offshore wind
Sustainable developement goals:

WindFloat is a floating foundation for offshore wind turbines with a simple, economic and patented design

Patented floating platform for wind turbines. Shallow draft, enabling commissioning of the system at port. Simple, easily disconnectable mooring system. Standard tubular components for simple fabrication. Structural design to minimise weight. Simplified logistics with low cost, widely available vessels.

The need

The offshore wind market is restricted to locations with low water depths. Offshore wind players aspire to develop deeper water sites that offer advantages such as high quality wind resource, and reduced visual and environmental impact.
