Saipem will use Framo suction anchor pumping system in the installation of Scotland’s largest offshore wind park Seagreen.
It is the second order for pumping systems in this application and marks an important milestone as it applies the company’s extensive experience from the offshore industry to renewable energy applications.
The systems will be used in a so-called suction bucket technology. Once finalized it will include 114 turbines producing 1075 MW to supply 1.3 million households with low-carbon energy.
Framo pumping systems’ suction (vacuum) technology will secure and safely anchor the wind turbine platforms to the seabed. The technology has been used to secure offshore oil platforms since the 1990s.
