Innovation & History

The ground-breaking technology of the AWC offers quicker, simpler and more environmentally friendly turbine installation. The lack of piling requirements lowers seabed and marine impact whilst reduced specialised vessel need and the turbine’s insensitivity to soil conditions provides flexibility in construction. These benefits allow the AWC to move one step closer to lowering the costs of the UK offshore wind industry.

The AWC technology is also fiercely resilient having been present in the North Sea for decades; projects from the Maureen Articulated Concrete Column to the North East Frigg Steel Control tower exemplify the AWC’s robust endurance of harsh conditions without the need for maintenance.
