- The fair will take place in Bilbao from 5−7 April and will bring major energy sector companies together to present and discuss new solutions for the wind energy sector.
From 5−7 April ACCIONA will take part in the WindEurope 2022 fair in Bilbao dedicated to the development of renewable energies in Europe, and specifically to wind power (both onshore and offshore).
The event will bring together several companies from the energy sector to discuss the role of wind energy in Europe in a series of sessions and round tables, presenting new contributions and discussing future challenges faced by the sector.
ACCIONA will have a stand at the fair where it will present models of its two latest floating solutions for the installation of offshore wind turbines, both co-developed with BlueNewables: S-bos (semi-submersible) and CT-bos (TLP). Both solutions can be industrially mass-produced with a view to reducing the manufacturing costs of the offshore wind power sector, providing solutions that can be easily adapted to offshore wind turbines of different sizes and sea depths.
ACCIONA will also announce the ARGO project, an innovative formula for industrialising the manufacturing, assembly and transport of foundations through the use of concrete, which is more competitive and durable than steel for this purpose and avoids environmental problems during pile driving, particularly in hard ground. This new technology reduces the manufacturing and installation times of foundations and may even allow the assembly of the wind turbines in the port where the foundations are manufactured; the completed unit is then transported to its definitive location, among other advantages.
Aspects such as floating wind power solutions, the importance of totally European supply chains, high energy prices, material sustainability and recycling, and digitisation aimed at reducing costs are some of the main themes that will be discussed in the fair.
Through the study and development of these solutions ACCIONA is contributing to the development of the offshore wind power sector and driving renewable energies worldwide.
