Innovative concrete spar substructure for floating offshore wind turbines.
Windcrete is a spar type floating substructure designed to carry wind turbines of up to 10 MW in deep offshore marine environments. Prestressed reinforced concrete is shaped in a monolithic structure.
Windcrete aims at decreasing the costs of production and implementation of floating offshore wind farms in deep waters.
Floating platforms can be positioned in deep water where fixed foundation are not competitive. Installing wind farms further from the shore would results in a growth of the exploitation of the wind power present over the ocean, leading to a larger power production from renewables in the country installed. We believe that our product especially suits energy companies that want to pivot their current portfolio towards a more innovative one.
