Public design and FAST models of the two 15MW floater-turbine concepts

April 2020

The report describes the two floating OpenFAST models for the WindCrete spar and the ActiveFloat semi-submersible. The floaters are designed for the IEA Wind 15MW reference wind turbine. Moreover, Ultimate Limit State (ULS) load cases are selected for the mooring and dynamic cable design in COREWIND.
