Sea Tower


Seatower delivers innovative foundations for offshore wind.Our foundations are designed to be installed by buoyancy and low-cost towing vessels, eliminating the need for expensive and weather sensitive installation vessels.

The foundations are optimized for the entire logistics of offshore wind construction – from efficient production to easy decommissioning. In particular, the Cranefree® foundations avoid the expensive and weather-sensitive crane, dredging and piling vessels that do installation today, and of which that are too few to meet the expected needs.
