ESB Invests In Floating Offshore Wind Mooring Tech

The title of this post, is the same as that of this article on

This is the sub-heading.

Ireland’s Electricity Supply Board (ESB) has announced that it will invest in Dublin Offshore Technology (DOT), a company specialising in floating offshore wind mooring technology

These three paragraphs, outline the new relationship.

DOT has developed a technology solution for floating offshore wind mooring systems which provides significant design improvements for the wind farm, the company said.

The optimised mooring system delivers these benefits using locally-sourced materials tried and tested in the offshore environment with no degradation over the full lifetime of the wind farm, according to the Irish energy company.

By partnering with DOT, ESB will be able to leverage its expertise and resources to accelerate the development and delivery of its floating wind project portfolio.

In 13 Offshore Wind Projects Selected In World’s First Innovation And Targeted Oil & Gas Leasing Round, I wrote about how ESB and DOT were working together on Malin Sea Wind.

This update on the Dublin Offshore web site describes the Malin Sea Wind project.

In the early days of North Sea oil and gas, I saw relationships like these form and blossom. You could argue that the success of the project management system; Artemis, that I wrote, benefitted from close relationships with major oil companies and large international engineering companies.

History is just repeating itself.
