COREWIND Deliverable D1.4 Methods For Multiple Floaters And Dynamic Cables

September 2021

This deliverable describes calculation methods for shared mooring lines and shared anchors. Shared mooring lines are implemented in the HAWC2 code and the dynamic modes of three coupled turbine configurations are examined through eigenvalue analysis. The methods are applicable for dynamic cables too. Shared anchors are analysed in Orcaflex for three configurations. The calculation method can be used for the dimensioning of shared anchors.

Floating Wind O&M Strategies Assessment

August 2021

This study investigates the effect of different O&M strategies and new requirements on the OPEX in the prospect of future floating offshore wind farms by providing a comprehensive O&M cost model analysis. Representative operational limits are generated for different maintenance activities – i.e. offshore major component exchange and tow-in operation – including the influence of workability, transportability and accessibility. The most promising scenarios with the most favourable strategy for major component exchange and crew transfer are summarised for each reference floater design and reference site.

Design Basis

August 2020

The purpose of this document is to define the basis for the analysis and design of the FOWT configurations to be developed during this project. The basis defines the framework for covering the design of both floater types (spar and semi-submersible) and all their subsystems.

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.

Definition of the 15MW reference wind turbine

October 2019

This publication defines a 15 MW reference wind turbine, implemented in the aeroelastic HAWC2 model. The turbine feeds into the further activities in WP1 and the rest of COREWIND, and will form the basis for the floater designs of COBRA and UPC.
