Marine-i, in cooperation with the Carbon Trust, announced three new tender opportunities designed to help improve technology in the floating offshore wind energy sector. They invite proposals from innovative marine companies to tackle three key development areas.

The first tender is to identify and evaluate innovative mooring systems and anchoring solutions. The second tender requires companies to investigate the drivers behind port maintenance strategies for floating wind farms. The third tender is to assess the feasibility and examine the technology required for heavy lift offshore operations at a floating wind farm.

The Carbon Trust believes floating wind presents an opportunity to harness wind resources in deepwater locations, unlocking new markets for offshore wind. However, a number of novel challenges must be addressed in order to deploy floating wind turbines at commercial scale. —Marine-i
