Tugdock and its partner Sarens have been awarded the contract for a study by RWE, one of the world’s leading offshore wind companies. The study will investigate the quayside offload and launch of two types of floating offshore wind platforms – one steel and one concrete – alongside the integration of next generation wind turbine generators onto these platforms.

The aim is to maximise local supply chain opportunities by utilising local port infrastructure such as that at Port Talbot and Milford Haven (two of Wales’ deepest ports.)

The study will investigate using Sarens’ established crane and barge technology alongside Tugdock’s innovative submersible platform, utilising a hybrid of both approaches.

These technical solutions will look to address the logistical challenges ports face in order to accommodate commercial-scale floating offshore wind deployment.
