Ideol Portrays Floating Foundation Assembly (Video)

The French Ideol has shared a video showing the construction methods of its floating foundation.

The ring-shaped floating foundation, known as the Damping Pool, has been developed and patented by Ideol and built by Bouygues Travaux Publics.

The foundation is being used for the Floatgen floating wind project which comprises a 2MW Vestas V80 turbine installed offshore France. The project produced first electricity in December 2017 while undergoing tests.

Ideol developed Floatgen in a joint venture with Bouygues Travaux Publics, Centrale Nantes engineering school, RSK Group, Zabala, the University of Stuttgart and Fraunhofer IWES.
