LEADING THE FLOATING WIND MARKET DEVELOPMENT

Leadfloat

Floating foundation solutions unleashes the market potential with no restriction on the water depth or on the seabed soil conditions, allowing developing projects further offshore where wind is stronger and the visual impact is limited.

Ideol has emerged as one of the few international leaders in floating wind, with two demonstrators built in France and Japan, relying on its patented floating platform technology, the most cost competitive solution in the market. It is the only European technology provider and the only foreign company having convinced the Japanese government and experts.

LEADFLOAT aims to impose Ideol’s solution as the market leader of floating wind by keeping its cost competitiveness advantage, leveraging on its demonstrators’ return of experience and securing early market share in key markets. It will contribute to keep Europe ahead and to positions its industry on the top of the new emerging floating-wind market over the competition from US and Japan.
