US Wind Announces Major Offshore Wind Progress (Ind. Report)
US Wind
Date: 2021-08-06
US Wind, Inc., Maryland's leader in offshore wind development, has announced major steps forward in the development of offshore wind energy for Maryland, including: major labor agreements to support the company's first major offshore wind project for Maryland -- the 22-turbine MarWin project -- and all other future projects; anew port facility agreement with Tradepoint Atlantic to develop 90 waterfront acres into a new offshore wind deployment hub, where US Wind will initially invest $77 million via the MarWin project; expansion plans for development of up to an additional 1,200 MW of offshore wind energy with the new Momentum Wind project; and a proposal for a new steel fabrication facility in Baltimore County at the Tradepoint Atlantic site -- Sparrows Point Steel -- to be built in conjunction with Momentum Wind.

At full capacity, Momentum Wind would include up to 82 turbines and will be Maryland's most ambitious clean energy project, able to fully satisfy the state's offshore wind energy goals and renewable energy and greenhouse gas reduction goals.

Catalyzed by a landmark 90-acre lease agreement with Tradepoint Atlantic at Sparrows Point Shipyard, the former home of Bethlehem Steel, US Wind will build on the port investment already committed via the MarWin project to facilitate the investment of an incremental $150 million to develop Sparrows Point Steel, Maryland's first manufacturing facility for monopile offshore wind foundations.

Founded in 2011, US Wind is majority-owned by Italian renewable energy developer Renexia SpA and a subsidiary of Toto Holding SpA which specializes in large-scale transportation and energy sector construction projects.

Bombora, TechnipFMC Partner on Floating Foundations (Ind. Report)
Bombora Wave Energy,TechnipFMC
Date: 2020-12-04
UK-based wave energy converter developer Bombora Wave Energy and Netherlands-headquartered energy services provider TechnipFMC report they are partnering to work on an Integrated Semi-Submersible Platform with Innovative Renewable Energy (InSPIRE) floating offshore wind platform pairing ocean wave energy with offshore wind. The two companies will develop a floating offshore wind foundation incorporating Bombora's mWave technology that combines wave energy and wind power on a shared platform.

For the project, a Phase 1 Demonstrator will develop a 12MW platform -- combined mWave (4MW) and wind turbine (8MW) on a shared floating platform. The commercial Phase 2 envisions 18MW combined mWave (6MW) and wind turbine (12MW) on a shared floating platform.

RWE, DEME to Install "Collared" Offshore Wind Foundation (Int'l.)
RWE Renewables
Date: 2020-12-02
RWE Renewables reports it has contracted with DEME Offshore for the transport and installation of a new steel "collared monopole" foundation technology at its 342-MW Kaskasi offshore wind farm in the German North Sea.

The "collared monopile" design is based on an RWE patent and will provide additional support for lateral loading, increase bearing capacity and improve the structural integrity of the entire foundation.

The Kaskasi offshore wind farm, which will incorporate 38, 9-MW wind turbines mounted on monopile foundations, is expected to begin construction in Q3, 2021, and will generate sufficient energy for more than 400,000 homes when fully operational in 2022.

RCAM Technologies Concrete Wind Foundation Project (Ind. Report)
RCAM Technologies
Date: 2019-11-20
US start-up RCAM Technologies reports it has been selected by and received funding from the National Offshore Wind Research and Development Consortium for contract negotiations as part of the consortium's second round of wind research and development projects. RCAM's award, which is one of two totaling $1.9 million, will go towards "proving the feasibility and advance the design" of the company's modular "3D Printing" concrete foundation.

The two-year project scope includes the conceptual design, preliminary design, and feasibility assessment of the fixed-bottom, suction-bucket support structure and heavy-lift-vessel alternative for the US DOE National Renewable Energy Laboratory (NREL) 15MW reference turbine.

According to its website, RCAM Technologies was "founded to develop concrete additive manufacturing technologies initially for wind energy technologies -- RCAM's vision for wind energy is to develop land-based and offshore wind turbine towers and substructures up to 200-meter tall at half the cost of conventional tall tower technologies."
