The Industry Collaboration Agreement between SeaTech Solutions International (S) Pte. Ltd. (‘SeaTech’) and Seawind Ocean Technology Holding B.V. (‘Seawind’) will focus on the collaboration to develop semi-submersible floating platforms customised to Seawind’s well thought-out construction and assembly requirements for its integrated floating offshore wind turbines.
The semi-submersible floating platforms are a key component in Seawind’s integrated approach to construct the concrete floating foundations and subsequently lift and assemble the tower, the nacelle, and the blades of its floating offshore wind turbines.
Seawind has started the permitting steps for a new turbine production and assembly facility in a port area in Italy, where the first newly designed semi-submersible floating platform will be deployed and commissioned as early as Q4 2024. This facility will also include a cement and batching plant, as well as a blade manufacturing workshop.
“Seawind highly values the expertise and reputation with which SeaTech Solutions are associated. I am confident that our collaboration will yield important results for both companies in the future,” said Seawind CEO, Vincent Dewulf.
Upon finalising the design, SeaTech would then provide a full design package of the semi-submersible floating platforms, which will include the detailed design, 3D modelling, and the full set of construction drawings.
“We are very excited to partner Seawind on this unique tailor-made solution for its production and assembly of floating wind turbines. The semi-submersible platform is a floating workshop and transporter combined in one to improve productivity and increase efficiency,” said Govinder Singh Chopra, Director of SeaTech.
Seawind Ocean Technology designs and produces with its tier-one partners integrated floating offshore wind energy systems composed of a two-bladed wind turbine and a concrete floating support structure, which can be deployed in deep (60+ meters) and ultra-deep (up to 3,000 meters) waters and in cyclonic areas.
