Learn how project partners are collaborating on their floating wind project designs, and about simulation challenges and solutions.
With the significant growth in offshore wind, many floating wind projects are being developed. Floating offshore wind farms can be deployed further from shore and in deeper waters. Even though these locations offer more favourable wind resources, there are new design and simulation challenges that need to be addressed. This presentation gives an overview of the current state-of-the-art for design of floating wind turbines, with special attention on coupled simulation, and the design and strength assessment of the floater.
- Project structure of floating wind design
- Tools and workflows for floating wind turbine design
- Conclusions and innovations required
