DMAX premieres this week 'MEGASTRUCTURES AT SEA - DemoSath Wind Turbine', a project that Drone by Drone has been working on.
After 3 years of drone recordings, the documentary, produced by New Digital Media Euskadi, reveals the secrets of the first connected floating offshore wind turbine in Spain.
The DemoSATH project is a prototype of a floating platform developed by the Basque engineering company Saitec Offshore Technologies, which was installed in mid-August in the waters of the BIMEP marine testing area, two miles away from the Biscayan coast of Armintza. The platform, on which a two-megawatt wind turbine is located, has been moved from the Port of Bilbao, where it was built, by Alianza Windstaller. The SATH (Swinging Around Twin Hull) technology consists of a double-hulled catamaran-type barge made up of two cylindrical floats of prefabricated modular concrete braced together and to submerged plates of the same material. It is characterized by having a single mooring point (single point mooring), which allows it to align with the direction of the wind to make the most of the wind resource.
The documentary production, in which aerial drone images play a fundamental role, is divided into 2 episodes that can be followed on DMax on Friday, November 10 and 17 at 8:30 p.m. and that will also be available after broadcast on DMax.es
