Ideol and STX develop a floating offshore substation design

Ideol and STX Europe Offshore Energy have partnered to develop a next-generation floating substation that will be compatible with both bottom-fixed and floating offshore wind farms. 

The concept is designed to operate in the world’s most extreme environments, the universal floating substation will remain flexible to satisfy client demands, local rules, standards, certifications, and/or specific certification requirements, reports Windpower Engineering.

The floating substations will accommodate both bottom-fixed and floating offshore wind farms starting at depths of 30 metres.
