Team Renewable Arctic Finland gathers Finnish companies to develop and test advanced solutions to enable maximum offshore electricity output in icing conditions – for example, concepts for offshore wind turbine foundations, special vessels and year-round operations & maintenance. These solutions are tested in the Baltic Sea and are scalable to other demanding operating conditions for maximum reliability and performance.
The fusion of two ecosystems – Team Arctic Finland and Baltic Offshore Wind – was initiated to better respond to the global transition towards carbon neutrality and low carbon solutions. Team Renewable Arctic Finland ecosystem gathers the expertise of 22 companies to pursue renewable energy, also in extreme environments. The ecosystem enhances competitive offshore domain expertise to create, design and deliver scalable solutions for renewable energy, resource efficiency and sustainable future.
