Floating Wind

Harnessing the power of deeper water for offshore wind.

Offshore wind enables the renewable sector to harness the power of stronger offshore wind in deeper water, where wind turbines can be installed on platforms, anchored to the seabed.

Interocean play a key role in supporting the development of floating offshore wind by combining the company’s capabilities to provide an all-encompassing design and analysis, procurement, installation, tow, and hook-up service.

Our team of naval architects and geotechnical engineers boast extensive experience in designing and analysing structures and mooring systems. They perform global dynamic analyses to assess the impact of weather, environmental conditions, and failure modes.

Our fully equipped survey vessels are available to carry out pre-installation seabed and cable route surveys to provide seabed charts that support design engineering and installation planning.

In addition, our marine operations team provide a fully managed package of services to support floating turbine installation, including:

  • Mooring design and global dynamic analysis
  • Geotechnical analysis for anchor type selection
  • Equipment procurement
  • Pre-installation seabed survey
  • Installation vessel selection, inspection and chartering
  • Mooring installation and pre-tensioning
  • Turbine tow and hook-up
  • As-build survey
