Intermediate certification from Lloyd's Register
After several months of engineering studies, the design of the foundation which will equip the Floatgen demonstrator receive an intermediate certification from Lloyd's Register. Ideol set out to apply Lloyd’s Register 2013 Floating Offshore Rules at a Fixed Location standard throughout the entire design process. Lloyd’s Register’s teams reviewed all the specifications, calculation notes, analysis reports and drawings submitted by the multi-disciplinary engineering teams. Their specialists had extensive exchanges with Idol's engineers in order to have all their comments satisfactorily answered and validated given the uniqueness of this innovative technology and the specificities of the mooring system.A further step towards the launch of the foundation's construction on Saint-Nazaire harbour.
