Bluewater has designed, manufactured, supplied and installed numerous innovative FPSO, FSO and SPM systems for oil companies worldwide through turnkey supply and Lease contracts. The company also provides operational and logistic management and support for FPSO and FSO systems. Since 2006 Bluewater has developed various technologies for renewable energy. Through the years, Bluewater designed, owned and operated ten FPSO’s (Floating Production Storage and offloading systems), of which three have been retired and two have been sold back to the oil companies. Presently, Bluewater owns and operates five FPSOs for our clients. Since its foundation in 1978, Bluewater has developed some of the most innovative Single Point Mooring (SPM) systems in service from Catenary Anchor Leg Mooring (CALM) Buoys, to Turret Mooring and Tower systems featuring multiple risers. Each system has its own characteristics and fields of application. For offshore renewable energy production, Bluewater has developed a Floating Wind TLP, a Tidal Energy Converter Platform, Solar Matrasses and an E-Buoy.

Bluewater with a vast amount of experience in engineering, manufacturing and mooring of floating offshore structures will contribute to the consortium as a business partner and co-funder. The expertise in interpretation of model test data, generation and validation of software models and concept, basic and detailed engineering will assist to converge to realistic solutions and designs or identify gaps between design and realisation.
