Last month NAUTILUS FLOATING SOLUTIONS SL was established, an industry and technology group consisting of ASTILLEROS DE MURUETA, TAMOIN, VELATIA and VICINAY MARINE INNOVACION, four leading companies in the world of advanced technology aspiring to become the bench mark in international markets for the development of offshore floating wind power generation systems, and the Centre for Applied Research TECNALIA.


Thus, NAUTILUS takes its first steps on its way to developing semisubmersible platforms for use in areas where water depth does not allow fixed installations.


This new industry and technology will be model tank tested in 2014 with the production of commercial units scheduled for 2016. It is expected to have a beneficial impact on the industrial life of the Basque region.
