After a multi-year design & development phase and extensive simulation studies, Naval Energies (formerly DCNS Energies) recently completed the first prototype of a new family of floating offshore wind turbines, or FOWTs. These semi-submersible structures can be made of steel, concrete, or a combination of the two. “Our design concept offers optimal stability while simplifying construction and equipment integration in any port as well as transfer to the windfarm and on-site installation.
