Offshore Wind Power Systems and Eolica Brasil Sign MOU for Offshore Wind Project

Offshore Wind Power Systems, a Dallas, Texas-based company has entered into an MOU with Eolica Brasil for the sale of an offshore platform contract.

The planned meteorological test site is located around 5 to 25 km distance from the shore where the projected Asa Branca, the multi-billion-dollar wind project of Eolica Brasil will be placed. The company has taken the needed ecological, aviation, marine permits to commence the project.

Both the companies will be engaged to design the platform according to the site, manufacture the required platform, bring the designed platform to the location, complete the installation and deliver it to be put into service. The contracted accord still opens up with options for more number of offshore platforms required for the Asa Branca project.

Offshore Wind Power Systems will supply its Titan 200 model platform for the facility. The design of the platform allows easy lifting of wind turbines of heavy size up to 10 MW power generation capabilities in water depths up to 100 meters. The Asa Branca wind power generation location will utilize 5 MW turbines for installation, which needs Offshore Wind Power Systems to supply a platform to require around 1,800 t of steel for support.

The Titan 200 can be set up either on a dock or on a dry dock at the quayside facility available along the northern coast of Brazil. Once the installation of the jack up platform is completed a metrological mast or wind turbine can be installed on the installed hull. Eolica Brasil is planning to install a meteorological mast over the Titan 200 platform with a wide variety of small sized solar and wind energy generators, soil boring equipment, oceanographic devices, avian radar, weather sensors and a meteorological mast.
