SenseWind signs manufacturing contract with Forsyths to build carriage systemSenseWind and Forsyths have agreed to terms on a manufacturing contract to produce a carriage system in support of the 2 MW demonstration project scheduled for installation in early 2025.
 
The 2 MW demonstrator will feature a Vestas V80 turbine and will be installed at Muirhall Energy's Tormywheel wind farm, aiming to generate power early next year. The project is partially funded by a grant from the UK Government's Department for Energy, Strategy, and Nuclear Zones (DESNZ), recognising the important technological step towards scaled-up versions for 6 MW onshore tall towers and 15 MW+ versions in floating offshore wind projects. The technology aims to solve a host of problems surrounding installation, maintenance, and logistics currently faced by floating wind projects. According to Sensewind, it will deliver up to a 12% reduction in Levelised Cost of Energy (LCoE) largely by reducing reliance on quayside ring cranes and offshore floating cranes for installation and major component swap out.
