DemoSATH - BIMEP Floating Wind Farm

20 Jul 2022: DemoSATH has been launched into the water ahead of tow out to installation site. The load out and launching operations were performed at Punta Sollana quay, in the Port of Bilbao (Spain), where the prestressed concrete platform was previously constructed and assembled, and equipped with a 2 MW turbine. The unit was loaded onto a semisubmersible barge with a ‘Self-Propelled Modular Transporter’, and then ballasted down lower into the water until the barge became buoyant, after which it was towed off to be berthed at the quay. During the next months the submarine dynamic cable will be deployed at the installation site and the floater will be towed out to be connected to it, as well as to the mooring lines that were previously installed in late April.
