G8 Subsea is launching MTB - The Implementation and Development of Next Generation Floating Solar and Wind Power Technologies Towards Gigawatt Scale

Research & Development is a core focus in G8. Our Engineers and Development Team is developing technologies for next generation floating systems for Gigawatt utility scale deployment enabling higher efficiency and reliability for floating Solar and Wind power generators. Following the success of the Senoko project where we have improved the engineering of BCS (Buoyancy Compensation Sections) system to enable floats and marine structures to withstand the harsh offshore environment.

The next generation MTB system will bring the construction of larger scale floating PV to the next level, where consideration of structural strength, anti fouling, buoyancy to counter harsher waves and tidal changes and environmental friendly HDPE material floats.  We are currently developing a MTB hybrid system where we can have micro wind turbine and FPV combine to generate both solar and wind energy concurrently. 

In addition to developing proprietary floating renewable energy structures, our engineering team is also developing the A.O.M. Autonomous Operation & Maintenance to cater for the ever increasing utility scale of solar and wind farm.  G8 Autonomous systems will be focus on self sustainability in the O&M operation to cater for the running of the plants in the most efficiently and safely towards Gigawatt Scale deployment of floating solar and wind systems.

G8 Subsea together with leading Solar Energy developer Sunseap Energy will be presenting at Singapore International Energy Week (SIEW) and international Floating Solar Symposium on Oct 30, 2020.  Please contact Vincent Phang - for more enquiries.
