The Business Network for Offshore Wind, the leading organization dedicated solely to the advancement of the offshore wind renewable energy industry and its supply chain, will host a first of its kind event in North America to explore the world of alternative offtake methods for the offshore wind industry.

The DemoSATH project has achieved a significant milestone with the successful installation of its 2 MW innovative floating wind platform demonstrator in open sea waters. The operation, carried out by the Windstaller Alliance, used their anchor handling vessel, the Normand Sapphire, along with local tugboats, to tow DemoSATH from the construction site in the Port of Bilbao to the BiMEP test site, located 11 miles away.

Salamander, a joint venture between Ørsted, Simply Blue Group and Subsea 7, has appointed Fugro to conduct a comprehensive metocean survey for the proposed Salamander offshore wind farm project. Located 35 km off the coast of Peterhead, Scotland, the 100 MW project will use innovative floating offshore wind technologies to help Scotland and the UK progress towards a net-zero future.

Eco Wave Power Global AB, a leading, publicly traded onshore wave energy developer, announces that its station at the Port of Jaffa in Tel Aviv, EWP-EDF One, has officially connected to Israel’s national electrical grid – making it the first wave energy project to deliver electricity to the country’s power supply.

Offshore wind projects taking place in macrotidal environments, such as around the UK, must deal with water level changes of more than four meters every six hours. This extreme tidal range is difficult to compensate for using ballasting, so projects that require load-in or load-out of large jackets are delayed when waters are too high or low, leaving the installation vessel waiting.
