1.- Floating platform & mooring
Led by Olav Olsen, the WP1 includes all the design of the Floating Platform and Mooring System. It will be driven to develop an innovative, robust and cost-effective floater design that is scalable for large WTGs, harsh environments, suited for mass production and which can be produced locally in most parts of the world. This WP will also deliver required design input to the procurement, fabrication, installation and operation activities (including O&M requirements).
2.- Wind Turbine generator & control design
Led by CENER, the aim of WP2 is to ensure the supply of the turbine under the conditions agreed and revise supplier’s documentation needed for the project; to provide a reliable parametric description of the wind turbine to feed numerical models and project tasks; to give a detailed structural engineering of the tower; to design the control strategy of the floating wind turbine; to verify the prototype’s turbine site-specific dynamics and calculate loads, power production, motions, etc.; and to define the operation and maintenance requirements for the wind turbine.
