AWC demonstration project is centred on the continued development of the Articulated Wind Column tech
Offshore Design Engineering (ODE) has been selected by AWC Technology to oversee the concept and pre-FEED works for its AWC demonstration project.
The AWC demonstration project is centred on the continued development of the Articulated Wind Column (AWC) technology, a floating foundation suitable for wind turbines in areas with depths of 80-250 metres.
Following the project’s recent grant award of over £750,000 from the Department of Business, Energy and Industrial Strategy, ODE has been selected as engineering contractor to support the maturation of the AWC concept into a commercially viable technology.
As engineering contractor, ODE will oversee the design and testing of the AWC technology and necessary analysis works.
Responsibilities on the project will include project management; CAPEX estimation; basis of design; geotechnical assessment; O&M and decommissioning; and certification strategy.
Works are expected to begin in February 2022.
