Anchoring Solutions for Floating Offshore Wind

With many years of experience in structural engineering, naval architecture, anchoring projects and marine operations, our team of experts are entrusted to support the anchoring of large, highly loaded, floating structures in deep water areas with rock seabeds.

Anchoring to Collaborate With Nature

To date, floating offshore wind (FOW) projects have largely been delivered at a manageable scale, however, the opportunities to produce renewable energy from consistently high winds further from shore are plenty.

Future successful projects in more complex and challenging environments will need innovative, smart and sophisticated technologies to overcome the difficult nature of operating in deeper waters. With the supply of cost-effective, rapidly deployable and environmentally conscious SCHOTTEL Marine Technologies can contribute to the success of FOW projects.

Our team of experts understand that for success in floating offshore wind, projects require the effective delivery of a range of highly specialised anchoring solutions.

Our Highly Specialised Anchoring Solutions

  • Dependable and efficient

    Robust, reliable, practical and cost-effective systems that provide durable station-keeping

  • Quick installation

    Short installation times which drive down Levelised Cost of Energy (LCoE): requirement for rapidly deployable compact anchoring solutions

  • Minimal environmental disruption

    Achieved by less invasive anchoring solutions (reduced noise, seabed footprint, installation rock cutting volume)

  • Unlocking new possibilities

    Increased addressable areas for developing floating offshore wind projects (deeper, more geotechnically challenging environments etc.)

  • Resilient and versatile

    Anchoring technology solutions that can withstand significant lateral and vertical loading (or a combination of both) to enable all floating wind technologies in development (semi-sub, spar, tension-leg platforms) driven by the different mooring arrangements from catenary, taut-moored, semi taut and vertical tension

Transferrable Experience from Industry Experts

Our team has the knowledge and expertise required to unlock deep water sites, enabling the utilisation of areas previously thought unreachable.

Developing floating offshore wind in these sites will play a critical role in supporting countries without a shallow continental shelf to contribute significantly to an increase in offshore wind power, accelerating the global transition to clean, green energy.

Groutless Self-Drilling Rock Anchors

Our Swift Anchors open up previously disregarded or challenging sites with rock seabeds where traditional anchor types cannot be adopted or are not cost-effective.
