Sevan from Norway has unveiled an exciting new development for the innovative floating wind foundation, SWACH Wind.
In addition to its traditional steel construction (commonly used in FPSOs and drilling rigs), Sevan has now introduced a concrete construction option.
The inclusion of concrete as a construction material provides enhanced flexibility in executing the SWACH Wind projects, allowing for construction in a broader range of locations.
This alternative material option not only offers construction advantages but also holds the potential for a significant reduction in carbon footprint, contributing to a more sustainable solution. Furthermore, utilizing concrete construction may facilitate increased local content, promoting regional economic development.
Renowned for its robust stability and excellent motion characteristics, the SWACH concept is the preferred choice for long time operation in harsh environments. A minimum amount of permanent equipment and a passive ballast system will reduce maintenance requirements.
