A floating offshore wind project has reached a significant milestone with the installation of a 2MW floating wind platform demonstrator in open waters

The operation, carried out by the Windstaller Alliance, used anchor handling vessel, Normand Sapphire, along with local tugboats to tow DemoSATH from its construction site in the Port of Bilbao, Spain to the BiMEP test site 11 miles away.

DemoSATH is a collaboration between RWE, Saitec Offshore Technologies and Kansai Electric Power.
