2022 Technical Program


WindFloat Atlantic Wind Farm: From Concept to Operation

Tuesday, 3 May
Technical / Poster Session
WindFloat Atlantic is the world's first classed offshore wind farm. The three ABS-classed, semi-submersible floating foundations are designed by Principle Power and are housing MHI Vestas turbines, which make a total of 25 MW of capacity. The WindFloat Atlantic project is developed by the Windplus consortium, which is jointly owned by Ocean Winds (50:50 JV owned and created by EDP Renewables and ENGIE), Repsol, and Principle Power Inc. This session covers a wide range of topics related to the WindFloat Atlantic project including the concept development, pilot program, design, construction, installation, and operation. The session also highlights the major achievements made through the development of the project.
