The First Floating Offshore Wind Project in The Celtic Sea

The TwinHub offshore wind demonstration project intends to prove how Hexicon’s innovative design with two turbines on one floating foundation can further reduce the Levelised Cost of Energy (also referred to as LCoE) before large scale commercialisation. The TwinHub project is a stepping stone to help kick-start floating wind in the Celtic Sea, an area identified as a hotspot for floating wind by the UK Government. It will pave the path for larger and larger projects to help support The Crown Estates’ ambitious target of 4GW of floating wind in the Celtic Sea.

Help meet UK Government’s 1GW floating offshore wind target by 2030 and Net Zero Emissions target by 2050.

Creating green energy by harnessing more wind per square meter, reducing environmental footprint and powering 45,000 homes.

Focusing on collaboration with Wales and the South West to support local supply chain development.

This demonstration project will be located at the Wave Hub site, and will consist of two floating platforms anchored to the seabed.  Each floating platform will host two turbines with inclined towers. The total installed capacity will be between 30 to 40 MW.

TwinHub will be deployed within the existing Wave Hub site, approximately 16km off the coast of Hayle. It will connect to the existing cable tails which run in to the Hayle substation, making full use of what has already been built.

Water depths are about 50-60 m at the site so the platforms will be anchored to the seabed using what is known as a catenary system.
