Wind Energy – Floating Wind
Subsea7 and Siemens Energy join forces to develop innovative technology for the Floating Offshore Wind market.
The Floating Offshore Wind market is an emerging business and needs innovations to enable cost-effective and reliable development at scale. Siemens Energy and Subsea7 are committed to supporting and tackling this challenge.
Building on Siemens Energy’s competence in electrical systems and subsea wet mate connectors and Subsea7’s competence in subsea engineering and offshore construction for the oil and gas and renewables markets, our two companies have entered into a joint development agreement for a Subsea High Voltage Plug and Power Hub dedicated to Floating Offshore Wind.
The innovative technology will enable connection of multiple wind turbines into one subsea hub, allowing for more flexibility in Floating Offshore Wind farm architecture and construction.
The flexibility offered will contribute to lower CAPEX and higher power availability by enabling efficient maintenance of offshore floating wind systems.
Subsea7 and Siemens Energy believe that collaboration is essential to tackle the challenges of the energy transition and will work together to provide the industry with the next generation of enabling products to unlock the potential of Floating Offshore Wind.
