Bureau Veritas (BV) has delivered an Approval in Principle (AiP) to Hyundai Heavy Industries (HHI) for its design and development of “Hi-Float”, a floating offshore wind turbine foundation.
The offshore floating wind substructure “Hi-Float” is designed to support a 10MW wind turbine using semi-submersible and mooring technology. A passive ballast system ensures that risk is kept to a minimum during offshore operations. The good performance of Hi-Float in offshore environment was verified through numerical analysis and wave basin model testing.
