TechnipFMC and Bombora Collaborate for a Wind-Wave Hybrid Floater

TechnipFMC and Bombora have formed a strategic alliance to build a floating wave and wind power project.

TechnipFMC's technologies and experience delivering integrated engineering, procurement, construction, and installation projects offshore will be combined with Bombora's patented multi-megawatt mWave wave energy technology.

The collaboration will initially concentrate on TechnipFMC and Bombora's InSpire (integrated semi-submersible platform with advanced renewable energy) project, which commenced engineering work in November 2020.

The hybrid system demonstrator will provide 6MW of combined floating wind and wave energy, followed by commercial platforms in series one and series two, which are expected to provide 12MW and 18MW, respectively.

“Our key competencies and integration capabilities make us a perfect project architect and collaborator in designing clean energy technologies alongside Bombora's expertise and unique, proprietary mWave technology,” said TechnipFMC president subsea Jonathan Landes.

“We are pleased to be working on a project that advances our environmental commitment while still contributing to a more prosperous future.”

“Bombora is partnering with TechnipFMC to accelerate development of our floating integrated mWave platform solutions for commercial wind farms,” said Bombora managing director Sam Leighton.

“With TechnipFMC's impressive track record of executing large-scale energy ventures and Bombora's revolutionary mWave technology, we are sure that InSpire will play a key role in the offshore energy sector.”
