Sea Breeze is awarded Design Approval and Certification by ABS

As part of the DECC study, ABS Group were engaged to carry out an independent verification of the design and installation of  Sea Breeze.  

In conclusion of this work, ABS Group issued its certification of the design basis for Ocean's innovative Sea Breeze Gravity "float-out-and-sink" offshore wind turbine foundation system. ABS Group issued its certification in accordance with the relevant standards, including IEC 61400 and the ABS Guide for Bottom-founded Offshore Wind Turbine Installations published by ABS Group's parent organization, American Bureau of Shipping.

DECC Offshore Wind Component Technologies Grant work complete..
LCOE reduction > 11%

Ocean are pleased to report that the £480,000 project to de-risk Sea Breeze, partly funded by DECC, is now complete.  During this project, Sea Breeze was updated for 6MW to 10MW WTGs and the Levelised Cost of Energy (LCOE) was reassessed.   It can now be confirmed that the LCOE reduction by  using Sea Breeze is >11%. 

This project has demonstrated that Sea Breeze is ready for full scale production and demonstration.

Ocean Breeze offers the lowest cost deeper water floating foundation for offshore wind farms

Based on their long history of tension leg buoys, recent further work carried out by  Ocean on its Ocean Breeze floating offshore wind foundation has concluded that the design offers the lowest cost for a floating WTG foundation.  

Other designs that have been demonstrated use far more steel / concrete and the installation process requires more expensive vessels.  Ocean has optimised the design and installation process to make this as low cost as possible.
