Come meet the poster presenters to ask them questions and discuss their work

We would like to invite you to come and see the posters at our upcoming conference. The posters will showcase a diverse range of research topics, and will give delegates an opportunity to engage with the authors and learn more about their work. Whether you are a seasoned researcher or simply curious about the latest developments in your field, we believe that the posters will offer something of interest to everyone. So please join us at the conference and take advantage of this opportunity to learn and engage with your peers in the academic community. We look forward to seeing you there!

PO093: Transportation & Installation methods for Floating Offshore Wind Turbine Foundations

Jun An Lim, Engineering Consultant, DNV


Offshore wind energy is gaining significance and experiencing a rising trend in the renewable energy sector. While current offshore wind farms primarily operate in shallow waters using fixed foundations, future forecasts indicate their expansion into deeper waters, necessitating floating foundations. However, based on industry feedback, there are limited information and studies related to Transportation & Installation (T&I) for Floating Offshore Wind Turbine (FOWT) foundations. In addition, with Floating Offshore Wind farms forecasted growth rate, it is expected that the number of foundations and capacity of FOWT will increase significantly. With this increase, foundations will be larger and coupled with the limitations of vessel capacity, the demand will be challenging to fulfil. In this paper, commercial calculation software such as DNV Sesam and General Hydrostatics (GHS) will be used to evaluate the T&I concepts of FOWT. To validate these concepts, cross-referencing will be made to oil & gas T&I solutions that have been in place for decades. Overall, the studied T&I concepts of FOWT will offer guidance on foundation and vessel designs to enhance the efficiency of the T&I process within this evolving industry.
