Seawind Ocean Technology, a Dutch engineering and technology company which has developed a floating offshore wind energy system, has signed a Memorandum of Understanding (MOU) with Petrofac.
The two companies will work together to combine Seawind’s floating offshore wind expertise and Petrofac’s engineering, procurement, and construction (EPC) and energy project delivery track record. Under the terms of the agreement, they will collaborate on the delivery of early floating offshore wind plant concessions, initially in the Mediterranean Sea and subsequently in other European and global locations. Petrofac will initially support design verification of the system, thereafter, the company will provide EPC services in connection with Seawind’s first 6.2MW floating offshore wind turbine demonstrator, due for deployment in European waters by the first quarter of 2024. Seawind has developed a two-bladed floating wind turbine integrated with a concrete floating structure suitable for installation in all seas, including cyclonic regions and ultra-deep waters.
