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.

Saipem Claims Scottish Offshore Wind Foundation Contracts (Int'l)
Saipem, EDF Renewables,,
Date: 2019-12-02
Milan, Italy-headquartered engineering firm Saipem is reporting receipt of two contracts totaling €750 million for engineering, procurement, construction and installation of steel foundation jackets for 54 8MW wind turbines at the £1.4 billion Neart na Gaoithe offshore wind farm to be constructed near the Firth of Forth on the east coast of Scotland.

Neart na Gaoithe will have a capacity of 450MW and is being developed by EDF Renewables, which closed project financing on 28th, November. This is Saipem's first turnkey contract in the offshore wind sector.

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."

Suction Bucket Offshore Wind Foundations Placed (Int'l Report)
Norwegian Geotechnical Institute
Date: 2018-08-13
The Norwegian Geotechnical Institute (NGI) and GeoSea are reporting the installation of the first of the 20 suction bucket jackets at the Borkum Riffgrund 2 windfarm 54 kilometers off the coast of Lower Saxony, in the German North Sea. The foundations of all 20 wind turbines have been safely pumped into the seabed full commissioning of the wind farm is slated for early 2019.

In the installation of the 56 wind turbines, 20 will use the suction bucket technology as foundation and 36 will be supported using monopiles. The three-legged foundations measure more than 50 meters in height and weighing 950 tons each.
