IT service provider Accucode is partnering up with RCAM Technologies, a specialist in large-scale concrete additive manufacturing, to develop large-scale, 3D printed concrete structures supporting offshore wind turbines.


The partnership with Accucode comes on the heels of a grant announcement. RCAM Technologies recently received $250,000 from the Colorado Office of Economic Development and International Trade (COEDIT) through its Advanced Industries Accelerator Grant Program. The grant was awarded to RCAM Technologies for developing a 3D concrete printed wind turbine foundation that will reduce offshore deployment costs by up to $4M per foundation and $400M per wind plant.


RCAM said it will use the funding to expand its 3D concrete printing capabilities at two partner locations: the U.S. Department of Energy’s National Renewable Energy Laboratory (NREL) in Golden and Accucode’s new facility in Colorado Springs. “This grant will allow us to establish large scale 3D concrete printing capabilities […]
