Float Foundation – our unique foundation solution

Are you thinking of reshaping your current floater design? Or are you making your first concepts? We can support you from concept to detailed design.


  • No offshore lifts: increased safety, lower costs, eliminates risk of future global shortage of windfarm installation vessels (WIVs)
  • No need for the Jones Act-qualified WIVs in US offshore
  • Enables access to ultra-shallow waters (3–9m), typical installation water depth 10–45m
  • Scalable to future wind turbine sizes, current design for 15MW
  • Environmentally friendly: no hammering noise, removable after lifetime, can be recycled
  • Quick and cost effective: fabrication-friendly design, various vendors can be used for prefabrication, high local content
  • Penetration of the skirts into the seabed improves foundation stability against moments and forces generated by wind, waves, ice and currents
  • Mobilization costs are lower and enable smaller projects
  • Reduced costs in waiting for suitable weather conditions
  • Easier to install on the seabed
  • Skirt secures the Float Foundation for scour with a 3m penetration into the seabed
