Project Description

FLOATING PLATFORMS

PROJECT: RDS Reduced Draft Spar

  • 8MW turbine design.
  • 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)

PROJECT: Eolia

Project focused on new floating wind turbine concepts for offshore sites in deep water (2007-2010)

  • Design of 3 specific wind turbine concepts for offshore application:
    • SPAR design
    • TLP design
    • SEMI design
  • Transport, installation and mooring analysis
  • Stability and seakeeping analysis
  • Model test validation
  • CAPEX assessment
