SBM Offshore and Technip Energies have announced the formal implementation of Ekwil, a 50/50 floating offshore wind (FOW) joint venture. Ekwil will offer a diversified range of ‘series production’ floating offshore wind solutions.

Ekwil brings together two technologies: the Semi-submersible INO15 by Technip Energies and the Tension Leg Platform Float4Wind by SBM Offshore. This approach covers a large spectrum of the FOW market, aiming to bring these technologies to commercial deployment. Headquartered in France, Ekwil consists of a core team of 40 specialists and will be backed by the resources of SBM Offshore and Technip Energies for project execution.

Séverine Baudic, formerly Managing Director of New Energies and Services at SBM Offshore, is the CEO of Ekwil. Willy Gauttier, previously VP of Floating Offshore Wind at Technip Energies, is the COO.
