Its success reflects the market's strong confidence in DOLFINES' ability to carry out its value creation project for major players in the huge renewable energy market, including the production of green hydrogen. These funds will enable the development of the design of our semi-submersible platform to be intensified to wind turbines of 15 MW and over, which will be the standard of the floating wind market in the coming years, and to optimally position DOLFINES and its partners on the major tenders that will be launched from this year. »
