Bechtel and Hexicon have partnered to develop demonstration projects for a twin-turbine floating offshore wind foundation in UK waters. The companies initially plan to demonstrate a 35-40 MW floating wind project. As per the partnership agreement, Bechtel will provide its engineering, construction and project financing experience to design and construct the project. The partners will also focus on bringing the technology to the market. They will consider the potential roles of local suppliers in shipbuilding, mooring and installations. These suppliers could also serve the needs of floating offshore wind projects in the years to come.
