Call for entries from companies and consortia interested to undertake a study looking to improve the understanding of the accessibility and expected availability of future commercial scale floating wind farms.
This project is one of four scoping studies being tendered by the Floating Wind JIP:
- Floating Wind Access & Availability
- Floating Wind Yield
- Assessment of Wind Turbine Generators for Floating Wind Farms
- Numerical Modelling Guidelines & Standards for Floating Wind
This project (Phase 1) aims to undertake a literature review and scoping study for a subsequent larger project (Phase 2) understanding the accessibility and expected availability of future commercial scale floating wind farms.
The main objectives of the project are:
- Estimate access performance for different platform types (semi-sub, spar, TLP and barge) with different access methods.
- Define and optimise the access strategy for the expected environmental conditions.
- Understand the sensitivity of accessibility on WTG availability.
- Determine the effect of floating substructure motions on technicians.
