Optimization of floating wind turbines using innovative control techniques and fully coupled open source engineering tool

Project description

Advanced turbine design for maximal harvest of wind energy at high seas

Wind power is key to the EU's green future. The great ability of offshore wind turbines to generate electricity, along with the restricted potential of the onshore wind farms, increases the need to exploit wind energy in deeper waters in a sustainable manner. The EU-funded FLOATECH project will develop a set of innovative production and monitoring tools to reduce the uncertainties in the design process of floating wind turbines. FLOATECH aims to provide more advanced, trustworthy and cost-effective floating wind turbines, leading to an increase of the actual energy yield of floating wind farms.
