Floating offshore wind turbines offer a means to access wind resources in waters that are too deep for bottom-fixed offshore wind turbines. To operate a floating wind farm, it must be possible to perform maintenance on the turbines. A critical maintenance aspect is the exchange of a major component such as a blade. It involves a lift of a large...

With the increasing water depths of the new offshore wind farms, the challenging soil conditions, the availability of assets, and other factors, jack-up installation vessels may no longer be suitable to complete the installation scope of work for the new wind farms. Therefore, installation methods and techniques using floating vessels must be...

With the increase in need for offshore wind exploitation a research is set up with aims to develop a preliminary design tool. The introduction begins with background information on what role floating wind will play in the offshore wind industry and why this is a relevant topic. A general overview of floaters is presented with a comparison of the...

With an increasing shift to renewable energies, solutions are required to overcome that variability and unpredictability of power production that comes with it. Hydrogen is one solution that can overcome this issue since it can be produced using renewable energy through electrolysis, it can be transported to shore efficiently by pipelines and it...

With the Paris climate accords signed in 2016, most countries have committed themselves to ambitious climate targets during the next decades. One of these targets is a dramatic increase in the overall energy portfolio's market share of renewable energies. This increase in renewable market share will, for a large part, consist of newly built...

Climate change, as a result from global warming, requires an energy transition: the reduction of greenhouse gas emissions from fossil fuels and a radical innovation of the global energy system to proceed apace. Offshore wind is an important source of clean, renewable energy, and it plays a key role in the transition. 80% of the worldwide...

Power optimization through wake steering and axial induction control is a well investigated topic in wind energy, which is generally proven to work. The influence of control manoeuvres on the fatigue of static components is generally discussed, but drivetrain fatigue due to wake steering and axial induction control is rarely discussed, while it...

Offshore wind energy is one of the solutions to meet the growing demand for renewable energy. The offshore wind turbines producing this energy keep increasing in size and, as a result, the monopile foundations are becoming larger and heavier. The traditional jack-up installation vessels have limited crane capacity and many of these vessels are...
