Project Description

FLOATING OFFSHORE WIND

PROJECT: FLOATING WIND MARKET ASSESSMENT

CLIENT: ENZEN Spain/ InnoEnergy

  • Global perspective of floating wind market demands
  • Study of the Offshore Wind market potential in Spain and Portugal
  • Screening of technologies and market capacities
  • Local value chain assessment
  • Support for reporting

PROJECT: Concept Independent Verification (CONFIDENTIAL)

Early-stage concept independent verification:

  • Review of general documentation
  • Creation of an analysis model based on a geometry developed by Client
  • Stability verification
  • Seakeeping & Station Keeping analyses
  • Structural FEM verification in ANSYS software
  • Weight estimation
  • Analysis of the practical production aspects (Fabrication strategy; Transport methods & Installation)

PROJECT: PULVINUS

Motion Reduction system design:

  • Perform ballast/de-ballast marine operations remotely and safely
  • Anti-heeling control of WT while operating, thus improving the efficiency

The system has been certified for two (2) 10MW floaters, including:

  • Safety philosophy and design principles
  • Functional specification
  • Block diagrams & Main SIL modules
  • P&I and One-line diagrams
  • FMECA (Failure Modes effects and Critically Analysis)
  • SIL Trials
  • AHBCS physical model tests
  • LR AiP

PROJECT: CROWN

  • Floating Concept development and verification
  • Seakeeping analyses and mooring design for a North Sea location
  • Structural design (primary and secondary members) and material selection
  • Coupled analyses
  • Constructability assessment
  • Logistic and manufacturing studies
  • CAPEX and OPEX
  • Model tests specification and follow up
  • DNV AiP

PROJECT: RDS Reduced Draft Spar Concept

  • Floating platform designed for a 8MW turbine.
  • Simple and robust geometry. Easy to scale
  • Concrete SPAR concept designed with reduced draft
  • Active Ballast System
  • TRL 5 Achieved, validated through model test
  • Cost effective: reduction in CAPEX and OPEX versus other solutions
  • Minimize the Marine Operations (towing + hook up)
