The Industry Collaboration Agreement between SeaTech Solutions International (S) Pte Ltd. (‘SeaTech’) and Seawind Ocean Technology Holding B.V. (‘Seawind’) will leverage on Seawind’s well thought-out construction and assembly approach of its integrated floating offshore wind turbines to design semi-submersible floating platforms.
SeaTech will provide Seawind with the basic design of the semi-submersible floating platform according to international standards and specifications. Seawind and SeaTech will co-own any related Intellectual Property.
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 units.
Seawind has started the permitting steps for a 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.
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.
