FibreMax (Netherlands) has announced that it has signed a Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) with Entrion Wind (Houston, TX, USA). This collaborative venture will focus on combining FibreMax's specialised fibre tendon technology with Entrion Wind's FRP (Fully Restrained Platform) Wind Foundation monopile design.
The FRP monopile design accommodates mooring solutions based on chain, spiral strand wire, and high-strength fibre tendons. Under the MoU, both companies will jointly work on qualifying FibreMax’s high-strength fibre tendons for the FRP design. The partners will also be developing site-specific offerings for various FRP mooring configurations. The common goal is to extend the operating depth of monopiles to up to 100 metres.
