VIDEO: UPC Tests Wind Turbine Floating Platform

Hydrodynamic test at UPC wave flume has been conducted on a scaled model of a monolithic floating concrete offshore platform for wind turbines.

Alternative floating offshore substructures for offshore wind farms (AFOST) project, under the KIC-InnoEnergy (EIT), is currently in the prototype verification phase.

Scaled testing and development of detailed engineering for full scaled test will last until 2017, with the commercialization to commence the following year.

The consortium in charge of this project consists of Gas Natural Fenosa, UPC and Universität Stuttgart.
