Petrofac and Seawind Ocean Technology Have Partnered on a New Project

Petrofac and Seawind Ocean Technology have announced a new partnership that will see the implementation of two-bladed floating wind turbines to help increase expansion in European waters.

The turbines, officially called the 6-126 turbines, are reported to last up to 50 years with their two-bladed design and features a teetering hinge that separates the rotor and the shaft.

The systems can be installed at a harbor using cranes, which will eliminate the need for an installation vessel to further increase scalability.

The Petrofac and Seawind Ocean Technology partnership will see the wind farm technology launched starting in Q1 of 2024, and could help to greatly increase the number of units that can be spread out to capture eco energy.
