Santander, 11 August 2020.- BlueSATH floating wind platform has been installed and commissioned in its final deployment site in El Abra del Sardinero (Santander, Spain). The Spanish engineering company Saitec Offshore Technologies has set off towing operation from Astander’s Dock Pontejos, where it was tied up for its set-up, towards its destination 800 meters away off Cantabrian coast. Then, the already-laid mooring lines were retrieved from the seabed and the platform hook-up was accomplished in less than 3 hours. Finally, commissioning offshore has successfully been completed so the turbine is ready to operate.
Testing will take place in real sea environment with the deployment of a 1:6 scaled prototype of a 10 MW wind turbine using SATH floating technology, (Swinging Around Twin Hull) an innovative, competitive and cost efficient solution for offshore wind industry which has been validated in several water tank tests since 2014.
