Posted by: Global Maritime | Date: July 9, 2020

Global Maritime remains dedictated to the development in technology for Renewable Energy. In addition to Offshore Wind, Tidal Energy, Wave energy++ we have recently been involved with several projects for the design and verification of floating PV (solar panels). Our experience is both with mooring systems, global analysis, detailed structural analysis and more.

Thomas Solberg, our Principal Naval Architect and project manager says:  "There are many challenges to overcome with these floating PV designs and optimizing is important. Materials, mooring system and installation all needs to be considered to find a robust, yet competitive design. It's extremely motivating to work with new technology and designs we know can help create a greener future globally. "
