The global leader in renewable energies will be the coordinator of FLAGSHIP Project. Besides the leadership of the initiative, its main role will comprehend the turbine procurement and the floating platform delivery, installation and testing supervision. Moreover, it will have a significant participation in the impact assessment of the solution and LCOE providing data of the scenarios in the North Sea, Baltic Sea and Atlantic Ocean.
The independent structural and marine engineering from Norway who has developed the OO Star system will be responsible for all engineering related to the floater and mooring design. For this project, the SME company will introduce a novel anchor design which has a potential to outperform the traditional suction anchor design.
This partner will focus on the full fabrication scope of the demo foundation, including load-out and assembly of turbine and tower, as well as the lead role for the marine installation of moorings, floater structure and cable.
The Spanish research centre will contribute in the verification of the coupled models and supporting the conceptual design of the tower, the definition of the prototype’s monitoring system, and the development of turbine digital twin.
The main tasks of the SME during FLAGSHIP Project will be the design of dynamic cable configuration based on section provided by UNITECH; the marine operation engineering including mooring installation, cable installation, load-out, tow, hook up and cable connection; the support on logistics activities regarding mass production scenarios; and the development of an innovative load-out method for mass production scenarios.
The Technical University of Denmark will be the leader for WP8 and will elaborate the wind farm level performance analysis to quantify the impact of innovations to reduced LCOE for different floating wind farms. DTU Wind will also work in WP2 to develop the turbine model and simulate the coupled loads and motion of the 12 MW platform as input to other work packages.
This large company from Norway will be in charge of the electric cable design and delivery. It will also be leading the Demonstration, Monitoring and Testing work package and will take part in cross cutting activities at WP10 and WP11.
The Marine Energy Test Centre will be the site manager of FLAGSHIP Project and will participate in WP3 and WP7 in tasks related to permissions from governmental institution and grid owner.
During the FLAGSHIP Project, ZABALA will support Iberdrola in the management of the project, specifically providing support within WP11. Moreover, the Spanish firm will be the responsible of the Dissemination and Communication activities of the iniciative.
The German company will provide support to the partners and the project with respect to future standardization and application of existing standards. Its focus will be on the fabrication-site evaluations, the design and implementation of monitoring system, and the scalability.
The Spanish Environmental Hydraulic Institute will participate in the WP9 performing environmental assessment, LCA and climate change impact. In addition, its participations is also expected in cross cutting activities such as management.
Within the FLAGSHIP Project, EDF will provide benchmark analysis and comparison with other Floating Offshore Technologies they are evaluating for their projects in the Mediterranean Sean and British North Sea.
