CoreMarine and CENER Collaborate on Floating Wind
CoreMarine and Spain’s National Renewable Energy Centre CENER have signed a consortium agreement to collaborate on engineering services for the floating offshore wind industry.
The agreement focuses on floating foundation design, mooring and dynamic cable analysis, transport and installation, wind turbine modeling, coupled analysis and scale model testing.
The combined offering will support projects from research and FEED studies to the simulation of components, detailed engineering and installation support.
“Currently it is necessary to implement the latest tools for simulating wind components and validation tests in industrial processes,” said Antonio Ugarte, Director for the Wind Energy Department at CENER.
“The alliance between CoreMarine and CENER makes it possible to combine precisely the engineering processes with the most advanced methods for the design, construction, transport and installation of innovative solutions for offshore wind energy.”
According to the parties, the collaboration will combine their expertise in a one-stop-shop for the development of floating wind projects.
“As far as we can see, this is the first offering to the floating wind market from front end engineering and model testing through to detailed design and installation. This is a first for the industry and represents a significant strengthening of our capabilities in the floating wind sector,” said Carlos Lopez, Director of CoreMarine Spain.
