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. (Source: Bombora Wave Energy, OE, 3 Dec., 2020) Contact: TechnipFMC, +31 (0)79 3293 600, email@example.com, www.technipfmc.com;

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. (Source: RWE Renewables, PR, Dec., 2020)

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."
