Aker Solutions has invested in floating wind power technology company Principle Power forming an alliance that expands its position in offshore oil and gas field engineering into the fast-growing renewable energy market.

Aker Solutions has an extensive track record in developing offshore oil and gas fields, with particular capabilities in floating facilities. The partnership will help bring Principle Power's technology - a floating foundation for offshore wind turbines, known as WindFloat - to a broader market, says Aker Solutions.
