PRINCIPIA is delighted to announce the award from Stiesdal Offshore Technology (SOT) of an engineering contract in the frame of the TetraSpar Demo Project

This project consists in the deployment of the TetraSpar floating foundation concept developed by SOT and fitted with a 3.6MW Siemens Turbine. The TetraSpar Demo project company is owned by Shell (66%), Innogy (33%) and Stiesdal (1%).

PRINCIPIA is in charge of the design verification of the mooring system and the floating foundation using DeepLines WindTM. This commercial software has been specifically developed by PRINCIPIA and its partner IFP Energies Nouvelles for the design of offshore wind turbines, and used on reference floating offshore wind projects (Hywind Scotland, Groix Belle-Ile, Provence Grand Large…).

Thanks @Henrik Stiesdal for your trust in PRINCIPIA capacity to mobilize an experienced design team on FOWT projects including mooring, floater and turbine specialists, combined with the deployment of DeepLines WindTM on a High Performance Computing (HPC) platform to meet project development milestones.
