  • SATH-Technology promises cost benefits in future floating offshore market
  • DemoSATH, a concrete platform hosting a 2 MW turbine, is scheduled for commissioning in autumn 2021

 ENERGIA LIMPIA XXI. RWE Renewables and Saitec Offshore Technologies have joined forces to test new ways to affordably install and operate offshore wind farms in deep waters. In a joint pilot project called “DemoSATH”, the RWE subsidiary specialising in renewable energy and the Spanish engineering company Saitec Offshore Technologies will start testing a floating platform for wind turbines off the Basque Coast in 2021.  A report carried by Energía Limpia XXI states that SATH technology is based on a twin hull made of modularly prefabricated and subsequently braced concrete elements. The float can align itself around a single point of mooring according to the wind and wave direction. The objective of the project is to collect data and gain real-life knowledge from the construction, operation and…
