In cooperation with ABB, Ideol and Atlantique Offshore Energy (AOE) have unveiled their universal floating offshore substation for both bottom-fixed and floating offshore wind farms starting at depths of 40 meters.
The solution is based on Ideol’s shallow-draft Damping Pool concept and on AOE’s electrical offshore substation concept SeeOs. The topside can be installed onto the floater at quayside, avoiding heavy-lift offshore operations. Also the testing and pre-commissioning can be done at quayside. The solution is market-ready for upcoming floating commercial tenders, in France and across the world.
