Saitec

Saitec Offshore Technologies, a spin-off from Saitec Engineering, a civil engineering firm with over three decades of industry expertise, dedicated to the global expansion of floating offshore wind energy with a concrete technology known as SATH (Swinging Around Twin Hull). With a revolutionary approach, it overcomes water depth limitations, reduces costs, promotes local supply chain involvement, creating job opportunities in the developments and operation of offshore wind projects, all while minimizing the environmental footprint.

The company collaborates with energy firms, EPC contractors, and investors to plan, develop, and construct offshore wind parks using the SATH floating technology. Additionally, it offers engineering services at all stages of offshore wind projects, from site and wind assessment and feasibility studies to detailed design and technical support during construction.

One of its most notable projects is DemoSATH, a floating offshore wind turbine with a 2 MW turbine, installed in the BiMEP test area off the Basque coast, connected to the Spanish electrical grid. This project generates renewable energy, providing electricity to over 2,000 households annually. To further advance the technology, the next milestone is the GEROA project, a pre-commercial wind farm with a total capacity of 50 MW, situated 10 kilometers off the Basque coast.

Saitec Offshore Technologies is actively engaged in various international tenders and the development of commercial ventures across the globe, with a specific focus on the UK, France, Australia and Japan, it has established its own subsidiary, Saitec Offshore Japan KK, to drive technology development and contribute its expertise in the Japanese market.

GEM

GEM specialises in Marine Geosciences and operates worldwide in all economic sectors where knowledge of this natural environment is an essential part of function: renewables offshore, submarine cables and piping, maritime infraestructures, oil & gas and dredging.

High quality data collection, together with their interpretation, analysis and presentation, all using the latest technology, are the keys that distinguish the company.

Our management skills, project quality, on-going innovation and technological development, expertise and motivation of our team as well as a commitment to our customers are the differentiating factors that allowed us to position ourselves as a reliable partner at an international level.

Our aim is for excellence: To be pioneers in the field of Marine Geosciences, leaders in the national market and highly competitive at an international level, to provide high quality services and high value-added solutions, with an effective team of motivated personnel, working together in an atmosphere of honesty and collaboration while maintaining the highest respect, both for human beings and for the environment.

The corporate structure adopted by GEM is far from the typical company pyramid with its associated ponderous bureaucracy; instead, GEM’s structure promotes flexibility and speeds response times as it allows actions to be taken that affect a single department as well as being open to one-off collaborations with third parties.
