PivotBuoy - An Advanced System for Cost-effective and Reliable Mooring, Connection, Installation & Operation of Floating Wind

Project description

An innovative system for more sustainable floating wind production

The great potential of offshore wind farms in producing energy increases the need for sustainable wind energy utilisation in deeper waters. The EU-funded PivotBuoy project aims to validate PivotBuoy, an innovative subsystem that reduces the costs of mooring systems and floating platforms, allows faster and cheaper installation and a more reliable and sustainable operation. Combining the advantages of single-point mooring (SPM) systems with those of tension leg platform (TLP) systems, PivotBuoy enables a radical weight reduction in floating wind systems compared to current spar and semi-submersible systems and offers a simplified installation compared to traditional TLP systems. By testing a part-scale prototype of PivotBuoy SPM system in a floating platform, the project will validate important innovations regarding the assembly, installation and operation of PivotBuoy system.
