MOORING SYSTEM INTEGRITY MANAGEMENT THROUGH MONITORING, DIGITAL TWIN AND CONTROL TECHNOLOGIES FOR COST REDUCTION AND INCREASED EFFICIENCY

Project description

Efficient mooring system integrity management

Mooring systems are critical components in floating offshore wind turbines, which are monitored through costly and unreliable load cells. In addition, the failure rate of mooring systems in the oil and gas sector appear to be several orders of magnitude greater than industry targets, showing a high degree of uncertainty in terms of reliability and costs. To address this issue, the EU-funded MooringSense project aims to develop an efficient risk-based integrity management strategy for mooring systems based on inexpensive and reliable online monitoring technology. It will achieve this by developing an affordable smart motion sensor, a mooring system digital twin model, structural health monitoring techniques and control strategies for mooring condition management at turbine and farm levels. The project’s achievements will lead to higher efficiency and lower operational costs for floaters' mooring lines.
