Floating wind pioneer Hexicon plans to deploy a pilot project off Norway in another planned outing for the group’s distinctive twin-headed turbine platform.

Sweden-based Hexicon signed a deal with the Norwegian Marine Energy Test Centre (Metcentre) over deployment of 6MW in a test area the latter is planning off the nation’s southern coast.

The partners plan to advance the demonstrator project, called TwinWay, based on Hexicon’s technology.

Hexicon CEO Marcus Thor said: “This is not only a great opportunity to demonstrate Hexicon’s patented technology and capability in project development, but foremost an important step for the floating wind sector.
