Aker Solutions takes pride in meeting the energy challenges that come before us. We are now involved in our most important challenge yet: harnessing the power of the wind. For almost two centuries Aker Solutions has been developing solutions in some of the harshest conditions imaginable. We have overcome our obstacles along the way by daring to imagine unique solutions to complex problems.
In February 2017, Aker Solutions invested in the floating wind power technology company Principle Power Inc. The rationale behind the partnership was to industrialize and globalize a leading technology for offshore floating wind.
Aker Solutions’ proven track record in floating systems, subsea power cables and offshore power systems, allows for a wind offering that covers the entire lifecycle of a floating offshore wind farm. This includes planning, installation, commissioning, operations and maintenance services.
