136,6 x 136,6 x 52,8m (32,8m above sea level)
Substructure weight: 10950 tons (incl 7000 tons on concrete foundation)
Water depths: 60 – 1500m
Mooring: 4 anchor and mooring lines
5 MW installed wind turbine capacity
6 MW installed wave energy capacity
0,2 MW installed sun energy capacity
Complete installation close to fabrication yard inshore.
Low cost on production, towing, installation, operation and maintenance (Low LCoE)
Excellent stability in High Waves and Heavy Wind. Concrete foundation 20m below sea level for floater damping, stability and strength.
Extended height above sea and stability improve turbine, wave energy transformers and solar panel efficiency and lifetime
Area-efficiency. Flex2power park level configuration will occupy only 16% off surface area compared to other offshore concepts measured in MW/km2
Option to install helideck and transformation module on substructure.
Feasibility for extension of concept unit.
