DNV certifies concept for Fred Olsen 1848’s Brunel floating wind turbine platform

Certification body DNV has awarded Fred Olsen 1848 a statement of feasibility for its Brunel floating wind turbine platform concept.

DNV explained that this means it considers the concept feasible for further development.

Fred Olsen 1848 – which was recently set up as a standalone floating division by Norwegian shipping company Fred Olsen – unveiled its Brunel floating concept earlier this month.

Brunel’s substructure is a column-stabilised unit with three columns connected by submerged horizontal pontoons. 

Its rotor-nacelle assembly is supported by two inclined towers meeting at a distance below the nacelle interface. 

The structure will use single-point mooring through a turret in order to weather vane.
