Bouygues Travaux Publics, which already owns the gravity-based foundation technology with the Fécamp offshore wind farm project, is exclusively acquiring an innovative floating base technology.
OO-STAR is a patented semi-submersible wind turbine foundation concept, originally developed by Dr.techn. Olav Olsen and later transferred to Floating Wind Solutions (FWS), which Bouygues Travaux Publics has just acquired.
This technology can be adapted to a wide range of marine environments, reducing the carbon footprint of wind farm infrastructures and lowering operating and maintenance costs.
The semi-submersible concrete foundations will be mass-produced in a timely and cost-effective manner.
This acquisition reflects Bouygues Travaux Publics' ambition in the wind energy sector and confirms its commitment to reducing the carbon footprint of its activities. This technology investment is an important step, as it gives us a significant technological advance to accompany the market more quickly in the necessary environmental transformation process.Philippe Amequin CEO, Bouygues Travaux Publics
