OUR TECHNOLOGY

SBM Offshore has developed an innovative proprietary floating structure for offshore wind turbines, allowing the economic development of floating wind farms. The SBM Offshore floating wind platform is a lightweight steel floating tension leg platform (TLP). Most of the structure is submerged under the water and is anchored to the seabed under tension to minimize movement. Easily installable with light and standard means, the floater also has a reduced seabed footprint and is simple to decommission, leading to a a reduced environmental impact and a competitive cost of energy.

WHY IT'S BETTER

SBM Offshore has designed a floating platform that offers the best performance for the wind turbine and at the lowest impact to the environment with a small seabed footprint. The platform has exceptional wind turbine stability and floater motion.

The floater is designed so that there is no need to adapt the turbine control strategy to sure optimum power curve and higher availability. The floater is adaptable and scalable to various wind turbine models which enables faster execution planning and fewer integration loops. The SBM Offshore floating solution is ideally suited for Northern Ireland which has a limited seabed and many environmental constraints.
