FULLY RESTRAINED PLATFORm (FRP) 
WIND FOUNDATION

​A scalable design with more stability and less cost.

CONTRIBUTE TO THE LOW CARBON TRANSFORMATION

The monopile technology is the leading offshore wind foundation solution providing cost competitive energy in waters up to 40 meters. 

The cost of floating foundations required for deeper waters is significantly higher.

Our goal is to extend the range of the monopile technology to 100 meters depth and significantly reduce the costs of offshore wind through our patent pending FRP foundation design.

OUR FOCUS

Design provides more stability for less cost in 40 meters to 100 meters water depth

  • Builds on established monopile industry expertise

  • Utilizes field proven mooring technology

Numerical proof of concept for a 10MW turbine in 40 to 100 meter depth based on Mid-Atlantic region extreme storm condition

Ongoing study with mooring and turbine partners for a site specific configuration to optimize the design and estimate the LCOE

"HHI is pleased to work with ENTRION and appreciate their work in successful execution of drill ship and semi-rig projects. Their continuous cooperation is highly recommendable and HHI looks forward to working with ENTRION in the future. "
