DOLFINES and CIMC RAFFLES have signed a memorandum of understanding to develop floating wind in Europe and Asia.

CIMC RAFFLES is an offshore engineering procurement & construction enterprise in China, who has four research and development centers and three shipyards in China that are particularly suited to execute offshore energy projects. Its docks feature  20,000 tons gantry crane, 4,215 meters of total quay length and a deep water berth of 18 meters.


DOLFINES provides solutions to harvest offshore renewable energy sources. It developed the TrussFloat system, a semi-submersible platform perfectly developed for floating wind applications such as grid electricity production, offshore O&G platform electrification, direct water injection in mature O&G fields, CCUS (Carbon Capture Utilization & Storage), and offshore hydrogen production.


“We are very proud to work together with CIMC RAFFLES who has all the EPC competences and construction facilities that are needed for an industrialized mass production of floating wind turbines. Moreover, the modular construction concept of TrussFloat™ allows also to comply with local content requirements by using existing construction and transportation infrastructure, even far off the coasts." commented Jean-Claude Bourdon, CEO of DOLFINES.


“DOLFINES has developed a light and passive semi-submersible platform for a large spectrum of floating wind applications. Together with Dolfines, we want to accompany O&G majors towards a carbon neutral future, securing profitable offshore production by giving O&G infrastructure a second life”,
emphasizes Fu Qiang, Marketing Director of CIMC RAFFLES.
