MARIN is set to carry out the full-scale monitoring and develop the digital twin of a floating wind prototype off the west coast of Ireland.

Subject to consent, a full-scale floating wind prototype designed by SAIPEM will be deployed off the west coast of Ireland at a test site of the Sustainable Energy Authority of Ireland (SEAI) as part of the €31 million, Interreg NWE project AFLOWT. This project is led by the European Marine Energy Centre (EMEC) working in partnership with SEAI, SAIPEM, MARIN, Fraunhofer IWES, ESB, CaLiCyA and University College Cork and aims to demonstrate the survivability and costcompetitiveness of floating offshore wind technology in the harsh conditions off the west coast of Ireland.
