With the floating wind hulls of today, this is a huge challenge both related to manufacturing capacity worldwide and installation at the site. One might even say it’s impossible to build facilities and hulls at this rate, let alone having justifiable economics.
We are proud to present our solution (patent pending) to solve one of the major challenges of offshore wind; cost effective fabrication and fast deployment at site. The complete T-Floater floating wind hull with its T-shaped pontoons can be transported efficiently packed on a dry tow vessel or alternatively in modules for in-water assembly. This allows for fabrication on a competitive shipyard and the hull can then be transported to a quay close to the wind farm installation site to have the tower and turbine installed.
The modules can also be manufactured in smaller shipyards for in-water assembly which opens the possibility for utilizing local shipyards which will benefit local content.
