DEMOGRAVI3 - Demonstration of the GRAVI3 technology – innovative gravity foundation for offshore wind
The DEMOGRAVI3 project is focused on the designing, building, assembling, transporting, installing and demonstrating a full scale foundation, equipped with a 2 MW offshore wind turbine, in a consented and grid connected demonstration site.
Additionally, the project will undertake further technology development for improved design and perform and in depth evaluation of the technology’s future industrialization, competitiveness and bankability.
The core partners are committed to work actively to shorten the path to commercialization of the GRAVI3 technology, which involves:
1) Creating a company with the objective to commercialize the GRAVI3 technology;
2) Preparing themselves to take on important segments of the industrial value chain which will be put in place to move the GRAVI3 product forward;
3) Fostering the use of the technology, namely in the wind farms that they are developing.
