RWE Renewables and Saitec Offshore Technologies have awarded Spanish infrastructure giant Ferrovial the manufacturing and assembly contract for the 2MW DemoSATH floating wind platform that is slated to be installed off Spain in 2022.

The construction package will last 14 months and covers site preparation, concrete precasting, procurement of steel bulkheads and assembly of the floater along with management of the supply chain.

“We are pleased to see that the DemoSATH project is entering the manufacturing phase now and making good progress towards offshore installation in 2022,” RWE Renewables chief operating officer Sven Utermöhlen said.
