In Norway, we are demonstrating the TetraSpar concept, which is a tubular steel structure with a suspended keel.
The TetraSpar Demonstrator project uses a 3.6MW turbine and was assembled in the port of Grenaa in Denmark. The platform, including the turbine, was towed to the Metcentre test site in Norway and installed safely. The test site located 10 miles offshore with a water depth of 200m.
The project is expected to start operation later this year.
We are working on this project with Shell, TEPCO Renewable Power and Stiesdal Offshore Technologies.
