Floating Wind Joint Industry Programme: Onsite major component replacement assessment – alpha phase (OMCR)

Calling for entries from companies and consortia interested in undertaking a study to further understand current in-situ major component replacement technologies. The Floating Wind JIP Partners would like to further investigate the status of current in-situ major component replacement technologies available and evaluate their suitability as well as developing criteria to be used subsequently as part of a follow-on Beta Phase project.

The objectives of the project are to:

  • Identify the current MCR technology gaps using previously completed Floating Wind JIP projects as a basis.
  • Develop an overview of the technical maturity for selected MCR concepts.
  • For selected MCR concepts undertake numerical model simulations for major component exchange using a hydrodynamic model.
  • Develop a test specification and criteria to ultimately feed into the Onsite Major Component Replacement Assessment: Beta Phase.

The deadline for clarification questions has now passed. Answers to questions received can be downloaded below.

The closing date to receive tender submissions is 17:00 BST 10 April 2024.
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.
