DNV is presenting a half day introduction course about floating offshore wind covering the market, the technology and project phases from design to operation.
The next phase of the energy transition demands committed implementation of new technologies. Floating offshore wind is opening new possibilities for wind power locations and will play a critical role in the transition to a cleaner energy supply, contributing significantly to an increase in offshore wind power. According to DNV, the technology is predicted to grow worldwide, rising from the around 100 MW today to more than 10 GW in 2030 and 250 GW in 2050.
Led by our team of world leading experts in floating offshore wind and augmented by DNV’s 13 years’ experience in this area, this half day course will provide attendees the basic knowledge to succeeded with this new and promising technology.
The training will be “inter-active” meaning that participants are asked to send their questions in advance of the course and have further opportunities during and at the end of the sessions to file questions to the trainers.
On completion, attendees should get a good understanding of the market and how floating wind differs from bottom fixed with regards to the components and the various project phases. For more details, see the agenda further down.
Magnus Ebbesen, Kimon Argyriadis, Alex Argyros, Oddrun Steinkjer.
Magnus Ebbesen holds a Master of Science in Engineering Science and Computer Science from NTNU and has worked in DNV GL since 2009. He is the business lead for floating wind advisory in the nordics and UK. Magnus has since 2013 worked primarily with managing and contributing to technical due diligence, market assessment and cost- and risk- assessments for offshore wind. Magnus has in this period led technical due diligences for bottom fixed offshore wind projects in UK, Germany and Taiwan and numerous floating offshore wind projects. He has also conducted floating wind market- and cost studies for many of the leading floating wind developers.
Alex Argyros is Chartered Engineer with the IMarEST and holds a PhD from Cambridge University for his work on ultra-deep water mooring analysis and model testing, which has been published in several academic conference proceedings. He joined DNV GL in 2012 and is currently Lead Naval Architect, specialising in the design and approval of mooring systems used in floating wind, wave energy, tidal energy and O&G applications. As Technical Authority for moorings for Noble Denton marine services, part of the DNV GL group, he has an active role in the development of standards including DNVGL-ST-N001 standard for marine warranty sections and the new up-coming mooring integrity management recommended practice. Alex also provides advisory services in naval architecture work such as hydrodynamics, transportation studies including motions and stability, offshore lifting, and installation of subsea structures (e.g. cables).
Oddrun Steinkjer has a Master of Science from NTNU (NTH) and has worked in DNV GL since 1991. She has her whole working career worked with dynamic slender systems including dynamic power umbilicals and cables in both Oil & Gas and renewable market. She has worked with floating wind since 2008. She is working on behalf of both manufacturers, EPCI contractors and operators providing technical advice, analyses or assessments for safe design, installation and operation of cable systems. She has expertise in global dynamic analyses of floating platform systems including various floating wind concepts. Her main expertise is within the structural and mechanical part of both static and dynamic cable systems; global response and fatigue of dynamic cables, seabed stability, freespan and VIV, protection systems. She has been part of the development team in DNVGL and has extensive experience with analyses software Helica for complex cross sections with helix elements including fatigue.
The target group for this training are professionals working in the wind industry (or wants to become part of it), developers, investors, insurance, OEM’s and regulators – who aims a fast learning of floating wind technology.
Full Q&A-note and presentation materials will be become available after the course.
