The offshore wind energy market is expanding and the number of offshore wind turbines being installed in the near future is rising. Offshore wind turbines are being installed further offshore and in deeper waters. Besides, to lower the cost of wind energy offshore wind turbines are increasing in size and power output. Both wind turbines and...

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...

The amount of floating offshore wind farms under development has drastically increased over the past years as the technology becomes viable for pre-commercial and commercial scale projects. Projects of this size require a streamlined, efficient production of the complete floating offshore wind turbine (FOWT), not only for manufacturing the...

To accommodate the growing demand for renewable energy, installation of new offshore wind energy capacity is increasing in many countries. New projects will be proposed for waters in which floating (sea) ice is a common occurrence in winter. Currently, projects remain limited to regions with mild ice conditions, such as the Southern Baltic Sea,...

The idea of shared mooring systems has been introduced in the offshore wind farm industry as an effort to lower the overall installation costs for floating offshore wind farms. The reason for building such plants is that using floating turbines allows them to move to deeper waters, reducing visual and environmental impact and allowing footprint...

Recently, there has been an increase in interest in floating wind turbines that are located offshore. These turbines allow for the harvesting of the power of the wind far offshore, where wind speeds are often higher.<br/><br/>Compared to their fixed counterparts, floating wind turbines allow for a certain mobility after the installation. This...

\chapter*{Abstract}<br/>Larger wind turbines are being developed to fill the growing demand for green energy. Wind turbines that need to be installed in the next decade will reach a capacity of 15 MW, with an approximate rotor diameter of 240 meters. The currently used wind turbine installation vessels cannot install these larger wind turbines;...

The offshore wind energy industry has been developing rapidly due to the increasing demand for renewable energy. As a result, offshore wind turbines are increasing in mass and height and are installed at larger water depths and further away from shore. A floating vessel is not limited by water depth and soil conditions, but is sensitive to wave...

The number of offshore wind farms is growing rapidly, which increases the likelihood of ship collisions with offshore wind turbines. Additionally, the cost of energy reduction for wind turbines is achieved due to radical design optimizations. Therefore, simple methods should be obtained to determine the offshore wind turbine response during ship...

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...

The modeling method for the performance of positive displacement pumps of hydraulic pumps is based on collecting operational data of the pump for its operational envelope and using equations with empirical fitting parameters and fit these equations to the data. This way values for the fitting parameters are obtained, with which the equations can...

Offshore floating wind turbines are one of the newest technologies in the renewable markets today. The world’s first floating wind farm, the Hywind Scotland Pilot Park, was commissioned in October 2017 and has been competitive with fixed bottom offshore wind turbines. There is a global push to make more renewable energy available, but less...

Wind power to cold climate sites is attractive because of favorable wind conditions and low population density. However, icing of wind turbine blades remains one of the main challenges for cold climate sites. Ice formation on wind turbine blades causes several problems, such as the loss of power production, unbalanced loads in drive train and...
