The Norwegian Marin Energi Testsenter (METCentre) and Bluewater have signed an agreement for a berth option to deploy a floating wind system. The system is planned to be installed in the North Sea offshore Karmøy, Norway.
Bluewater has developed the Tension Leg Platform (TLP) type floating foundation to support offshore wind turbines and with this project it will test the solution in the deeper waters of the North Sea. The TLP foundation is scalable, lightweight and supports wind turbines with minimal floater induced nacelle motions and the tension leg mooring system has a small seabed footprint.
