Strategies for the Exploitation of Anchors for FLoating Offshore Wind Energy Reaping

Project description

Effective anchor solutions for floating offshore wind turbines

Offshore wind is a clean and renewable source of energy, now exploited using bottom fixed turbines in shallow waters. Floating technologies, at present in a pre-commercial phase of development, would allow the wind market to grow significantly, encompassing deeper waters and higher wind speeds. The EU-funded SEAFLOWER project aims to support the development of floating solutions from the geotechnical standpoint, contributing towards overcoming some of the current technical barriers of wind energy exploitation in deep waters. The objective is to define a numerical procedure that can store the experience maturated in the oil and gas energy sector and the most recent research findings on anchor foundations to make them available to the needs of the offshore wind energy market.
