In cooperation with ABB and after nearly 2 years of extensive and thorough collaborative efforts, Ideol and AOE have unveiled their universal floating offshore substation for both bottom-fixed and floating offshore wind farms starting at depths of 40 meters. 

Based on Ideol’s patented and shallow-draft Damping Pool® concept and on AOE’s certified electrical offshore substation concept SeeOs, this universal floating offshore substation has been engineered to operate in the world most extreme environments and to offer maximum modularity.

This universal and modular floating substation is expected to have a significant impact on the market of offshore substations and is market-ready for upcoming floating commercial tenders, in France and across the world. The market potential is huge, as 115 GW of new offshore capacity is expected to be installed around the globe by 2030.  Find out more about this floating substation
