Entrion Wind has been awarded a project to evaluate the feasibility of its patent pending fully restrained platform (FRP) offshore wind foundation technology by a ScotWind developer.

Under the agreement, Entrion Wind will assess the technical and economic feasibility of the FRP foundation technology, extending the monopile as well as its supply chain and economics up to 100 metre water depth at one of the ScotWind lease areas.

The project is backed by Entrion Wind's partners including Empire Engineering, Acteon through InterMoor, and EEW-Group.

Subject to completion of the feasibility study and technical findings, the developer may enter into other contractual arrangements and engage Entrion Wind to conduct concept and feed studies as well as cooperate on a demonstration project to prepare for deployment of the FRP technology.

“Entrion Wind is very pleased for this opportunity to demonstrate the technological feasibility of the FRP monopile in close cooperation with a major developer enabling and building a business case for a one foundation technology scenario and comparing the FRP technology to both bottom fixed and floating solutions in terms of water depth, costs, supply chain constraints”,
said Bjørnar Eide, CFO.

Back in October, Entrion Wind signed a Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) with Techano AS to collaborate in the development and test project for the offshore wind foundation technology looking to extend the operating depth of monopile technology up to 100 metres. The project is planned to take place place in Kristiansand, Norway.
