Exceptionally high local content possible in California for Ideol’s concrete floater
An in-depth audit of California’s harbor sites and port infrastructures reveals that Ideol’s uniquely compact and shallow-draft concrete floating wind solution can offer the highest levels of local content.
Ideol’s in-house construction and offshore operation experts conducted an in-depth review of all major California harbor sites and concluded that :
- Concrete floating foundations for commercial-scale wind farms (50 units or more) could be built and launched in at least 5 construction sites, with two being immediately suitable without any upgrades.
- 4 sites were identified as suitable for wind turbine assembly
- 8 harbors are capable of storing mooring lines as well as hosting operation and maintenance bases.
