EXPERIMENTAL OFFSHORE WIND TOWER 5 MW
PROYECT GRANTED BY H2020 FRAMEWORK
Arinaga and PLOCAN (Gran Canaria)
After 7 years of R&D, ESTEYCO is building the first prototype with ELISA project technology. This will be the first offshore wind substructure installed without the intervention of a heavy duty vessel, thanks to the telescopic tower and the self-floating structure, contributing significantly in the cost reduction of wind power in the marine environment.
ESTEYCO has developed the technology and is building the prototype with three partner companies, GAMESA, ALE Heavy-Lift and DEWI-UL, which are leaders in their respective fields. Installation is expected for May 2017 .
Another important characteristic of the technology is that the substructure is entirely made out of concrete, to reduce costs and enhance the durability in such an aggressive environment.
