The project involves the deployment of WEC Penguin technology at the Biscay Marine Energy Platform (BiMEP) test area, an open sea marked zone dedicated to supporting research and technical testing of prototype floating Marine Renewable Energy Devices (MREDs). BiMEP is situated in the North of Spain, offshore the Basque coast of Bilbao.
Saipem will provide Wello OY with the transportation and installation of the WEC Penguin “WEC2” from a yard in the Orkady Islands, where it is currently located, to the BiMEP test area. Works encompass towing, mooring installation, deployment of the WEC2, operation & maintenance and other marine works.
This first joint project demonstrates the competitive advantages of the cooperation agreement between Saipem and Wello OY and establishes a model that can be applied to several business opportunities in the near future.
