Offshore Wind

 

Wind resources tend to be greater further offshore. As wind energy systems move further offshore they are in deeper water which requires floating, moored structures. SST is in the forefront of this emerging technology.

The world’s first full-scale floating wind turbine, Hywind before deployment in the North Sea.

SST’s proprietary Micropile anchoring system promises to dramatically reduce mooring costs for Offshore Wind projects.

Greater wind resources are encouraging the industry to move further offshore
