The floating offshore wind sector is forecast to have 12 GW of capacity installed or underway globally by 2030 – corresponding to approximately 800 installed 15MW wind turbines – and is expected to reach 39 GW by 2035, according to 4C Offshore, June 2023.
Schottel Marine Technologies is developing a suite of cost efficient, rapidly deployable and environmentally sensitive rock anchoring solutions for the global offshore energy sector (floating wind, floating solar, tidal and wave) and the aquaculture industry. The company is headquartered in Spay, Germany, and is a wholly-owned subsidiary of Schottel Industries GmbH, whose roots go back more than 100 years. Being a part of the Schottel group gives Schottel Marine Technologies access to specialist engineering departments, the class-certified manufacturing capacities of the entire group as well as a global sales and service network.
In addition to Schottel Marine Technologies, Schottel Industries GmbH comprises five other companies specialising in marine propulsion systems, automation technology, gearing and gearboxes, hydrokinetic and tidal energy as well as electric system integration.
“Drawing upon the engineering pedigree and heritage of Schottel and the decade of engineering experience and expertise that our people have in anchoring floating energy devices, I am excited about Schottel Marine Technologies’ future growth in Europe and indeed worldwide” said CEO of Schottel Marine Technologies Dirk Schulze. “We offer an environmentally sensitive and disruptive technology that can accelerate the growth of offshore renewables, helping countries around the world achieve the energy transition and reach their Net Zero targets. In particular, we see the emerging floating offshore wind sector offering Schottel Marine Technologies significant opportunities as our patented Swift Anchors technology will open up new areas for deployment, especially deep-water areas and in areas where there are rock seabeds. We also see potential in the other areas of the offshore renewable energy sector – tidal, wave and solar, as well as floating aquaculture.”
