The floating wind foundation TetraSpar Demonstrator owned by Shell, TEPCO RP, RWE and Stiesdal has been successfully connected to Norway’s grid.
Earlier this summer, the TetraSpar Demonstrator reached its destination at the METCentre test site after a tow of 360 nautical miles from the port of assembly in Grenaa, Denmark. It has now been fully commissioned and is producing power in automatic, unattended operation, anchored in place at 200 m water depth off Norway’s coast. The project will now enter its test phase where data on the performance and characteristics of the TetraSpar floating foundation will be captured and analysed to pave the way for commercial-scale floating wind projects.
