PivotBuoy Kick-off meeting and project website launch

The PivotBuoy project is pleased to announce the launch of its website (www.pivotbuoy.eu), and inform about its kick-off meeting that took place on the 15th and 16th of May 2019 in Brussels, Belgium.

The project partners from five European countries met in Brussels, to kick-off this ambitious research project and collaborate on the PivotBuoy® system, a novel, single point mooring system platform, which could significantly reduce the cost of floating offshore wind. The project has received €4M of EU Commission Horizon 2020 funding.

The consortium will integrate a part-scale prototype of the PivotBuoy into a downwind floating wind platform designed by X1 Wind at PLOCAN’s test site. The system will be installed by 2020, where other innovations related to assembly and installation will be validated.
