Hexicon Acquisition of the Wave Hub
Congratulations to the team at Hexicon for the acquisition of the Wave Hub offshore renewable energy site off Hayle, Cornwall. Hexicon, with support from Bechtel Corporation are developing the site for up to 40 MW of floating offshore wind energy using their two turbine TwinWind floater technology. Working under a Framework Agreement, London Marine Consultants (LMC) have supported Hexicon with the license application and Pre-FEED engineering design for the floater (structural, systems, electrical), mooring, anchoring and dynamic power cable systems.
