Windcrete was present at the EERA DeepWind’18 Conference presenting Construction Possibilities for Serial Production of Monolithic Concrete Spar Buoy Platforms. Access to Conference Web page here. Access to presented poster here.
A poster called “Windcrete concept scalability: from 2MW to commercial stage was presented”. The poster describes the upscaling of the WindCrete platform from a prototype design to commercial units and shows its economic viability with significant reductions of the cost … Read More
Significant research efforts are now being directed at floating offshore wind turbines. The main challenge posed by floating wind turbines is the high construction and installation costs of the substructure, which make it too expensive for commercial exploitation in the … Read More
Experimental RAO’s analysis of a monolithic concrete spar structure for offshore floating wind turbines Nowadays the offshore wind energy market is clearly oriented to be extended around the world. Bottom fixed solutions for supporting offshore wind turbines are useful in … Read More
Preliminary studies of a concept consisting of a monolithic concrete SPAR platform were presented in 2014. The studies were performed in the framework of the AFOSP KIC-InnoEnergy project (Alternative Floating Platform Designs for Offshore Wind Towers using Low Cost Materials) … Read More
