Bouygues TP acquires floating base technology

Already having the technology of gravity foundations Thanks to its expertise in the Fécamp offshore wind farm project, Bouygues Travaux Publics has announced the exclusive acquisition of a innovative floating base technology.

OO-STAR is a patented concept of semi-submersible base for offshore wind turbines, originally developed by Dr.techn. Olav Olsen then transferred to Floating Wind Solutions (FWS), which Bouygues Travaux Publics has just acquired.

the hydrodynamic and structural behavior of the base guarantees optimal performance of the turbine and great durability of the structurethus ensuring better performance.

Mass production

Furthermore, this technology allows adapt to a large number of marine environments, reduce the carbon footprint of wind farm infrastructure and reduce operating and maintenance costs.

Bouygues Travaux Publics and Dr.techn. Olav Olsen now hear combine their expertise in engineering and construction, in order to optimize the design and implementation process of this technology, with the aim of provide an integrated solution, innovative and competitive for the floating offshore wind market. “The production of semi-submersible concrete bases will be done in series, within efficient deadlines and at a competitive cost.“, promises Bouygues.
