THE ELISA TECHNOLOGY PROTOTYPE WINS THE ACE 2019 AWARD FOR THE BEST STRUCTURAL WORK

In the 5th edition of the prizes organized by the Associació de Consultors d’Estructures (ACE) Esteyco has been awarded the Prize for the best structure work for its ELISA technology prototype, PLOCAN, Gran Canaria.

This award intends to distinguish the person or team responsible for the authorship of the best performance in the field of structural consulting. The jury’s decision was announced on Thursday 13 June.

The ELISA technology consists of a concrete substructure for offshore wind turbines supported on the seabed, whose main characteristics are a self-floating transport foundation incorporating a telescopic tower.

It is the first worldwide offshore wind turbine installed without using large vessels or marine cranes and the first fixed-bottom wind turbine installed in southern Europe.
