InterMoor, a leading provider of mooring services and part of marine energy and infrastructure services group Acteon, was recently awarded an engineering study for a floating offshore wind facility in Asia.
The scope of work aimed at driving down the CAPEX element of the mooring equipment as well as the offshore installation costs. The work included a series of feasibility studies that covered anchor selection (comparison between drag-embedment anchors, driven pile, suction pile and suction embedded plate anchors SEPLA), mooring system design and innovative mooring options, supply chain (logistics of components and transportation), and offshore installation options of the several dozens of floating wind turbines making up the wind farm. The team also provided an overall cost budget and cost comparison between the various solutions.
Vin Bala, General Manager InterMoor Asia Pacific, said “It is an honour to be awarded such important work. This award bears witness to our mooring experience and engineering capabilities. The work will be completed out of the Singapore office with support from the other InterMoor offices.”
