LICengineering and Principia Form Offshore Wind Foundation Alliance

Denmark-based LICengineering and France’s Principia have launched a joint initiative to combine their fixed and floating offshore wind technologies and geographical locations.

According to LIC, the two companies complement each other with LIC providing jacket and monopile designs and having developed in-house software for the analysis of monopiles, while Principia has pioneered fully-coupled aero-elastic modeling techniques for both fixed and floating structures.

In addition, LIC has offices in Denmark and the UK, with strategic partnerships in the USA, whilst Principia has teams across Southern Europe and in Malaysia, meaning that the partnership can cover any wind project anywhere, the company said.

Benoit Chassé, Business Development and Project Manager for Principia, said: ”This strong combination of skills for both fixed and floating offshore wind technologies, combined with a geographical presence covering Europe but also the US and Asia, makes this new adventure with LIC a promising future for both companies.”

LIC said that this is not the first time the companies are working together, since they have cooperated on a number of projects over the last few years.

“This is a really exciting time for LIC and Principia. We’ve already done some great work together and know each other really well, so I’m looking forward to exploring what new opportunities are out there.  With LIC’s practical design experience and Principia’s forward-looking coupled analysis and floating design work I’m confident we can make some huge LCoE savings for our clients,” Luke Fussell, Deputy Head of LIC’s UK team, said.
