Our presence in the offshore renewable energy sector recieved a boost in 2012 with the establishment of ABB Inocean AB.
The new joint venture between ABB and Inocean specialises
in management of offshore wind integration projects.
ABB Inocean undertakes engineering and project management activities including fabrication supervision of platforms required for offshore wind connections supplied by ABB. The move is aimed at accelerating the build-up of offshore competence to support ABB’s growing offshore wind power integration business.
The main focus for ABB Inocean has until now been Thornton Bank, DolWin 1 and DolWin 2 – all of them huge offshore wind farm development projects in Europe.
Inocean is continuously supporting the development of new methods for the production of renewable energy. Our active role in SWAY, with world leading technology and expertise on floating wind turbines located in deep water, is an example.
Electrification of offshore platforms
Inocean is also working on the development of specialised ships for installation of offshore wind turbines and electrification of offshore platforms..
