Sustainability is our only future due to the present visible evolution steps towards new technology, which everyone wants to be, including us, discover IHC IQI. Every cloud has a silver lining, and as global warming causes water levels to rise, the water generates renewable energy, as we figured out. Having a team of professional engineers and architects with all the necessary equipment for handling construction materials, we can lay a floating foundation for a lifetime.
Many people think that construction companies’ constant is changing, our teamwork with the mentality of going green through green technologies and energy sources such as the wind turbines offshore. We believe that environmentally friendly energy sources are the key to the sustainability of our constructions.
Because most of the world’s possible offshore wind site is located at a distance outstretching the monopiles abilities, considerations were to be made regarding floating foundations. IHC IQI being the market frontrunner has built a floating wind foundation, the first of its kind on Earth.
By the time it reaches 2050, floating foundations will make over 18% of all offshore wind arcades. The floating foundations are not restricted by water depth like the monopiles; thus, they will survey areas with much stronger wind yielding higher output energy. These assembly plants are moved to ports from the shorelines to achieve the turbines’ simple movement, thus easily tugged by small vessels into the sea.
So, tech has only been applied to small-scale developments. It is believed that when the technology applies to large wind granges, mechanized assembly and competent installation will be of a higher essence to ensure the floating wind foundation is profitable. The floating foundation will create new opportunities, especially in areas that rarely experience shallow waters and states that have already developed attractive sites near the shores.
Hywind Scotland became the first floating foundation in 2017, having been installed into five-megawatt turbines all through the help of IHC IQI. IHC IQI developed a tool, Flange Clamp, which assisted in solving all potential-cost-related shortcomings in the farms’ installation. No person is required to be present in the turbine assembly and long-lasting bolting period. The absentia boosts the safety and effectiveness of the installation.
An arising setback in the floating foundation is the mooring lines’ fully operational installment. The mooring lines are to be pre-laid on the seafloor before wind turbines came into existence. Mooring lines were linked under the water using an average H-link. At times, the mooring lines are allowed to be laid afterward and become lines to join the floater at the port and then released for the subsea union from the farm site.
Dependable anchors, accurately installed having driven piles are vital components in the mooring system. Since there still exists a wide range of opportunities as the floaters are designed to reduce cost, the floating farms increasing in extent, installation time is reduced alongside all related risk, this technology’s advantages will be more evident. IQIP is ever willing and able to take part in the floating wind.
