Discover how an innovative Floating Wind Turbine like TetraSpar Demonstrator is installed off Norway, behind the scenes… This is the 5th Floating Wind Turbine (FWT) project Bourbon Subsea Services has been awarded since the company decided to develop its activities towards renewable energy in 2011.
The TetraSpar project is the world’s first full-scale demonstration of an industrialized offshore foundation. It is carried out in a partnership between Shell, RWE, TEPCO Renewable Power, and Stiesdal Offshore Technologies. The TetraSpar foundation is a tetrahedral structure assembled from tubular steel components. It is expected to offer important competitive advantages with its potential for lean manufacturing, lean assembly and installation processes, and low material costs.
