Maridea designed two Moray Base versions

  • The “Active” configuration is compact and has a ballast system to compensate for rotor rust.
  • The larger “Passive” configuration, without ballast system is even more maintenance friendly.

The 15 MW Moray Base is designed for harsh world-wide conditions. The shown 9.5 MW design is projected in a more moderate environment.

Tailored design

Foundation concept is generic

  • Scale/sizing to be optimized for turbine
  • Scantlings to be optimized for farm site

Support of 15MW turbine is possible with 12m tube diameter which is suitable for existing production facilities.
