Floating Wind Joint Industry Programme: Larger Static Pitch Angles (LSPA)

Calling for entries from companies and consortia interested in undertaking a study to understand the effects of LSPA in context to power production and floating platform design.

The Floating Wind JIP would like to: 

  • Understand the effects of static pitch angles and determine the conditions under which a trade-off between power generation and floater mass may justify greater static pitch angles. 
  • Evaluate the different test cases scenarios and floater technologies to determine how flexible you can be with the static pitch (loads on the RNA, power generation loss) and how this would affect the floating substructure design (mass, dimension, etc.) as well as the LCOE. 
  • Assess the potential trade-off between power production and floating platform designs (mass, dimensions, technology) when allowing higher static platform tilt as well as investigating the impact of deflection upon wake effects upon the wider LCOE system.

The deadline for clarification questions is 7 March 17:00 GMT.

The closing date to receive tender submissions is 31 March 17:00 GMT.

All clarification questions and tender submissions should be sent electronically, by their respective deadlines to alistair.morris@carbontrust.com, with floatingwind@carbontrust.com in copy.
