Floating WINDdesal (FWD)

published: 18.02.2021

We are pleased to announce that StoGda is involved in a very innovative Floating WINDesal project.
Floating WINDdesal (FWD) is a „floating water utility” and stands for a path-breaking technology supplying potable water to coastal regions worldwide. FWD essentially consists of a seawater desalination plant and a wind turbine, both supported by a floating semi-submersible structure.

The project is being created thanks to the European industry initiative with the participation of system partners (thyssenkrupp Industrial Solutions, CRIST Shipyard, SYNLIFT Industrial Products) as well as technology partners (Prysmian Group, Boll & Kirch Filterbau, AEROVIDE, StoGda Ship Design & Engineering, EMS Offshore Services).

A first FWD project implementation – most probably in the Middle East – is to begin this year.
