RWE is well on track to become a leader in floating wind and to have one gigawatt either in operation or under construction by 2030. To gain experience early, RWE is participating in multiple high-profile floating demonstration projects like the TetraSpar Demonstrator. Together with its partners Shell, TEPCO Renewables and Stiesdal Offshore Technologies RWE has safely deployed and commissioned the TetraSpar floating foundation off the Norwegian coast.

The TetraSpar foundation is a tubular steel structure with a suspended keel. The floating platform, including the 3.6 megawatt turbine, was towed to the Norwegian METCentre test site and installed in waters as deep as 200 metres. Recently, the turbine has been connected to the Norwegian grid and is producing power. This marks the start of the test phase where data on the performance and characteristics of the floating foundation will be captured and analysed to pave the way for commercial-scale floating wind projects.
