Deep Reach Technology Inc. (DRT) has signed a Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) with Trendsetter Vulcan Offshore (TVO) to collaborate on developing innovative support structures for large offshore wind turbines
The two companies will work together on one of the 15 projects to receive grants from the U.S. National Offshore Wind Research and Development Consortium, funded by the Department of Energy to support innovation in offshore wind solutions, development of a U.S.-based supply chain, electrical systems innovation and solutions addressing impacts on wildlife and radar.
With the grant pending, DRT and TVO are laying plans to investigate how novel offshore oil and gas platforms can be adapted for large wind turbines, with a focus on designs for very large fixed-bottom and floating offshore wind turbines that can be built economically to speed the spread of offshore wind energy.
“This MOU is a major step forward in the work DRT is doing in the renewables sector to develop technologies that enable affordable energy,” said DRT Co-founder and Chairman Dr. John Halkyard.
