Saipem SpA and Trevi SpA have signed a Memorandum of Understanding to cooperate to jointly develop a design of two drilling systems for large diameter foundation holes for wind farms.

Trevi and Saipem aim to develop a design that can cope with site specific geotechnical and geophysical data pertaining to the locations to be drilled, to identify the most appropriate drilling strategy and consequently the most appropriate technology.

The agreement also covers the possibility to jointly develop such drilling equipment that should then be operated by Saipem, leveraging on Trevi expertise and knowhow on foundation, in executing wind farm projects.

This MoU, follows the signing of a non-binding agreement between Saipem and Havfram to evaluate a potential cooperation in the offshore wind business. It aims at strengthening Saipem’s value proposition for the offshore wind.
