BW Ideol is a pure player in floating offshore wind with more than 10 years of experience from design, execution and development of floating wind projects based on Ideol S.A.’s patented floating offshore wind technology and engineering capabilities. The company has a dual-leg growth strategy as a floater EPCI and maintenance services provider and as a wind-farm project developer and co-owner. BW Ideol has two full-scale offshore floating wind turbines in operation in France and Japan, a significant project pipeline including 1 GW under development in Scotland, and is supported by BW Offshore’s extensive experience from developing and operating offshore energy production systems
BW Ideol has recently secured close to 1GW worth of floating offshore wind acreage in ScotWind leasing round, in partnership with Elicio and BayWa.re. This call for tenders, which will be a major milestone in the floating wind power sector, allows BW Ideol to confirm its ability to co-develop commercial-scale projects.

Damping Pool® is a patented floating foundation that optimizes the stability and performance of the floating wind turbine, even in extreme conditions.
