Floating Wind Solutions AS is the owner of the OO-STAR semi-submersible wind turbine foundation concept. OO-STAR is among the most promising concepts for the floating offshore wind farms of the future. The offshore wind turbine fundament can be adapted to all relevant sea conditions, reduces the carbon footprint of larger offshore wind farms and has the potential for major cost reductions for renewable energy production. This acquisition reflects Bouygues Travaux Publics’ ambition in the wind energy sector and confirms its commitment to reducing the carbon footprint of its activities. This technology investment is an important step, as it gives us a significant technological advance to accompany the market more quickly in the necessary environmental transformation process”, says Philippe Amequin, CEO of Bouygues Travaux Publics.
Alpha Corporate Finance has acted as exclusive financial advisor to the board and the shareholders in Floating Wind Solutions in the transaction.
