Ørsted and its partner ATP have revealed details of a modular concept for their proposed North Sea Energy Island development. Ørsted, ATP and their partners Aarsleff, Bouygues Construction and Van Oord are proposing building the artificial island from flexible modules instead of an inflexible, contained island.
The modules can be built on land, while the reclaimed island and offshore wind turbines are built at sea. With this concept, the partners, estimate that the energy island in the North Sea can deliver green power two years before an inflexible, contained island. By using flexible modules the artificial island can also be expanded and modules can be added and replaced if necessary.
