DUBLIN–(BUSINESS WIRE)–October 19, 2022–
Gazelle Wind Power (Gazelle), the developer of a hybrid modular floating offshore wind platform, received the results of its basin model tests at the facilities of the Institute of Environmental Hydraulics of the University of Cantabria ( IHCantabria) in Spain. The test report, certified by the international certification body DNV and Safier Ingenierie, verified the feasibility of the Gazelle platform concept under a wide range of conditions. A prototype model of Gazelle’s platform was analyzed through a variety of evaluations, including surge and yaw excitation tests, wind-only tests, wave-only tests, decay tests , etc.

“The test serves to further validate our technology, which is critical to achieving commercialization and unlocking the full potential of offshore wind,” said Jason Wormald, CTO of Gazelle. “These tests show that our platform will be an essential part of the energy transition that will be centered on decarbonization, independence and security.”
The main test results were based on the 10 MW Floating Offshore Wind Turbine (FOWT). The tests confirmed the main principles of Gazelle, including the main physical principles underlying the design of the Gazelle platform. The tests also reaffirmed that the Gazelle rig significantly reduced pitching movements even in extreme sea conditions. The data collected during the various tests will be used to create a benchmarking database which will be the basis for the next phase of the design loop in collaboration with Safier Ingénierie.
Having recently appointed Jason to lead Gazelle’s technology and engineering teams, Gazelle has now taken a critical leap forward in the deployment of its unique offshore floating wind platform which, thanks to its modularity, scalability and ability to be mass-produced, can unlock the huge opportunity of floating offshore. wind power market, which represents a total addressable market of around 750 billion euros by 2050 according to DNV.
