Swedish company Hexicon develops wind power projects in deep water areas based on a patented technology, while the Norwegian Marine Energy Test Centre (Metcentre) provides facilities and assistance for testing new marine renewable energy technologies. Now the companies have teamed up to develop the floating offshore wind demonstrator TwinWay.

TwinWay is a pilot to commercialise new floating offshore wind technology. With the project, Hexicon and Metcentre want to show proof of floating wind power in deep waters as it enables generations of large amounts of renewable energy meanwhile allowing higher average wind speed and lower visual impact than both onshore and bottom fixed offshore wind power.

Marcus Thor, Chief Executive Officer of Hexicon, comments: “This is not only a great opportunity to demonstrate Hexicon’s patented technology and capability in project development, but foremost an important step for the floating wind sector. With this project we can demonstrate the clear benefits with offshore floating wind compared toonshore as well as bottom fixed offshore wind power, and how it is set to become a highly relevant part of the future renewable energy mix.”

The test area is located off of Norway’s southern coast and Metcentre has applied for consent for a new larger capacity of 85 MW, expected to be granted in 2021. Hexicon has signed a conditional site exclusivity agreement with a reservation of 6 megawatt.
