Principle Power, a provider of floating foundation solutions for the floating wind industry, has expanded its WindFloat product portfolio to include two fully industrialized products: the existing WindFloat tubular design, now called WindFloat T, and the new flat panel, pontoon-based solution known as WindFloat F.
Both WindFloat products are considered market-ready and suitable for the next generation of offshore wind turbines. These developments are part of Principle Power's broader industrialization vision for floating wind.
The WindFloat F is designed for ultra-shallow water wind turbine integration in ports with water depths as shallow as 9 meters. Its pontoons provide additional buoyancy, reducing column diameter and footprint, which expands supply chain options.
The new design combines flat panel architecture with technology from the WindFloat T, including a 3-column architecture and an improved hull trim system. This makes it suitable for automated subcomponent manufacturing at existing fabrication facilities.
Principle Power's expanding WindFloat product portfolio is a key component of its "300x30" industrialization vision, aiming to enable the delivery of 300 floating wind turbines by 2030, propelling the industry into the gigawatt scale era.
With 75 MW of capacity in operation and 30 MW under construction, Principle Power is a market leader in floating wind technology. The company has exclusivity to supply WindFloat technology to commercial-scale projects totaling 10 GW and supports customers in delivering a multi-GW portfolio of cost-competitive floating wind projects globally.
