Orbital Launches O2 Project Mooring Winches Call
Scottish engineering company Orbital Marine Power has issued a tender call for the design and provision of 2 hydraulic mooring winches for its O2 2MW Floating Tidal Energy Turbine project.
The 4-months contract also includes all logistics associated with the loading and transport.
Time limit for receipt of tenders or requests to participate is January 01, 2020.
The O2 tidal turbine is an optimised version of Orbital’s SR2000 turbine. With an ability to generate in excess of 2MW the O2, like the SR2000 before it, will become the world’s most powerful tidal turbine when it enters operation later in 2020 at European Marine Energy Centre, Orkney.
Orbital has already awarded overall build O2-contracts to ACMC for the composite blades, SKF for the power trains, O2 platform manufacturing contract to TEXO Group in Dundee and an anchors contract to FAUN Trackway in Anglesey.
