We are currently working with offshore wind developers, consortia, and government agencies to develop demonstration projects around the globe using PelaStar technology.

Energy Technologies Institute Demonstrator Project FEED Study

In 2012, Glosten was selected by the Energy Technologies Institute to design an offshore wind floating platform system demonstrator. The goal of the project was to accelerate the market introduction of floating foundations for deep water offshore wind farms and to break down technical barriers for deployment. Glosten completed the front-end engineering and design (FEED) of … Read More

Department of Energy (DOE) Grant

In late 2011, PelaStar was selected for a grant from the US Department of Energy to reduce the cost of energy (COE) of offshore wind through targeted technological advancement. In this ongoing project, a detailed COE model is being built and vetted with substantial quantities of UK Round 2 and projected UK Round 3 cost … Read More

University of Maine Intermediate-Scale TLTP FEED Project

In 2011, Glosten was selected by the University of Maine for their intermediate-scale floating wind turbine demonstration project. Fourteen finalist designs were evaluated by a panel of wind power and offshore industry experts, as well as leading researchers from the US Department of Energy and the US National Renewable Energy Laboratory (NREL). PelaStar was selected … Read More

UK Carbon Trust Program

Glosten’s internal research and development effort led to a project for the UK Carbon Trust Offshore Wind Accelerator Program. The program aimed to develop new wind technologies and reduce UK offshore development costs by 10%. With Carbon Trust funding, Glosten was able to demonstrate PelaStar’s technical and economic feasibility. The work was reviewed and vetted … Read More
