R&D Nester, REN and ENONDAS participated in a workshop focused in floating offshore wind energy, organized in the context of the ARCWIND project


R&D Nester, REN and ENONDAS participated in an international workshop whose main topic was on floating offshore wind energy. This workshop took place in Lisbon, on the 10th of October. It was organized by Instituto Superior Técnico, in the scope of the ARCWIND project, funded by the INTERREG Atlantic Area programme, and in which R&D Nester is a consortium member and REN and ENONDAS are stakeholders.

The workshop had an active participation of multiple entities related to offshore wind energy, focused in floating solutions, and included presentations from an European Commission JRC, from DNV-GL and from two promotors of floating platforms for offshore wind energy (SAITEC and ESTEYCO), among others. The topics addressed included the presentation of multiple solutions related to floating offshore wind technologies including the design of innovative platform, showcasing of new materials whose characteristics make them interesting to be used in offshore solutions and solutions to monitor offshore equipment. Finally, and because this is a core topic to the development of floating offshore solutions, different funding opportunities at an European level and the trends in research topics were also presented.

ARCWIND project has a participation of fifteen different partners from five European countries and aims to contribute to the development of floating offshore wind solutions. All project related information can be accessed at:
