Offshore wind in deep water

The PelaFlex floating platform is structurally efficient, has excellent stability and is straightforward to assemble, deploy and maintain.

  • Structurally efficient tetrahedral design
  • 10 primary steel components with 4 distinct parts
  • Low-cost fabrication and assembly
  • Rapid and safe deployment with proprietary deployment hardware
  • High stability in-use improving energy yields
  • Reduced wear and tear on the turbine
  • Low environmental impact from tensioned moorings
  • Accessible on-site maintenance.
  • Easy return-to-port maintenance if needed

An optimal solution at every stage of the product lifecycle

Our unique and flexible platform can be stably anchored in deep water, allowing wind turbines to be cost effectively installed at depths greater than 60m.

Engineer

Simple structure – fast to customise design to needs of project

Low mass – less than 200t/MW – equal to class best

Designed for industrialisation from the outset

Build

Low fabrication costs – only 4 distinct parts, primarily tubes, easy to automate

Rapid assembly outdoor at yard – specialist facility e.g. dry dock not required

Only lifting equipment needed

Allows maximum use of local supply chain

Simplified logistics

Deploy

Flexible launch options – minimal draft of less than 5m with turbine installed

Good towing stability with a wide weather window – low bollard rating for towing vessels

Fast and safe hook-up, remotely tensioned, rapidly ‘storm safe’ with dedicated deployment system

Suitable for deep water

Operate

Zero tilt – maximises energy capture and reduces wind turbine controller modification 

Low acceleration minimising turbine wear and tear

Small offset reducing strain on dynamic cable

Minimal mooring footprint reducing impact on seabed and eliminating issues with mooring clash or device spacing

End of Life

Straightforward recovery – reversal of deployment

Recyclable – structure can be easily disassembled back to component parts
