TKI Wind op Zee - Newsletter - October

Dear all,

Last week the tender regulations for the offshore site for demonstration of innovative offshore wind technology, Borssele site V, have been published in the official journal (Staatscourant).

In the Borssele offshore wind zone, a site has been reserved for the demonstration of innovative technology. This technology can be a new type of foundation, wind turbine technology, new installation methods or cable systems etc. The site allows a maximum of 2 wind turbine positions and a total maximum capacity of 20MW.

The tender targets innovative technology that reduces the cost of offshore wind and potentially contributes to the Dutch economy.

The official information can be found here.

Pioneering SME: Pliant Offshore

Vertical piling in one effort

Pliant Offshore has developed a measurement system to control vertical piling of monopiles. With movement compensation and without interrupting the process or the disturbing influences of small irregularities on the monopile. The system saves offshore wind farm builders time-consuming and costly stopovers. The secret is in the 3D-scanner software and especially in the processing and visualization of the data.
Read the complete interview with Alex Heurkens of Pliant Offshore here.
