Flintstone Aims at Floating Wind Sector

Flintstone Technology, part of MacGregor and the Cargotec group, is diversifying its mooring operations to help drive down costs for the offshore floating wind industry.

Namely, Flintstone said it has developed a set of mooring system solutions to match specific project requirements in oil and gas and marine renewable energy.

According to the company, experience in the oil and gas industry combined with the mooring solutions, is transferable and provides benefits to offshore floating wind in lowering costs and increasing reliability.

Andrew Clayson, managing director of Flintstone, will be presenting on the ‘development and implementation of a subsea tensioned mooring system’ on the opening day of Floating Offshore Wind Turbines (FOWT 2018), which takes place in Marseille, France, from April 25-27.

“There are many similarities between the offshore floating wind and oil and gas supply chains. Our technology, although originally designed for offshore floating production, is suitable for any permanently, moored floating system. We believe we can make a real impact in the OFW sector to increase efficiency and drive down costs,” Clayson said.
