  • Mechanics (design of the connectors)

  • Aero-hydrodynamic coupling (wind turbine, mast, floater and anchoring)

  • Tank tests

  • Purchase of main components

  • Offshore construction and installation methods (installation of mooring systems, installation procedures, selection/availability of the vessel, design of materials and equipment, operability, position control)

  • Risk assessment (HAZID, AMDEC, etc.)

These different disciplines can be applied to design, detail or construction engineering for the marine renewable energy market.

Ideol raises €15 million to finance the acceleration of its international development

Ideol is pleased to announce the signing of a €15 million capital funding round, led by private equity firm Kerogen Capital (“Kerogen”), a leading energy specialist investor based in Hong Kong and London.  
This latest investment further establishes Ideol as one of the clear global front-runners in floating offshore wind. Created in 2010, Ideol has developed an industry-leading and internationally recognized floating foundation which promises to quickly become one of the most significant commercial solutions in the rapidly developing floating offshore wind industry. Ideol is already at an advanced stage of deployment with two floating wind demonstrators, built locally in France and Japan (two key markets). Ideol’s patented technology is designed to operate with both current and future large-scale wind turbines and to be the most cost-competitive solution in the floating offshore wind market.
