Offshore wind stands as a crucial contributor to generating clean, renewable energy, but the limited availability of shallow water locations restrains the potential of bottom-fixed wind. To unlock the vast wind energy potential in deeper waters, a substantial reduction in the Levelized cost of energy (LCOE) of floating wind technology is...

The European energy transition policies aim to mitigate the effects of climate change by moving away from fossils and promoting both onshore and offshore renewable energy technologies. Although onshore renewables are driving the transition so far, policymakers believe that in order to achieve the targets, the power grid must have access to the...

Offshore wind energy is expanding rapidly as governments aim for net-zero emissions, with monopiles and jackets being the primary foundation methods for offshore wind turbines (OWTs). Supply chains, heavier turbines and deeper waters influence the efficiency of jacket foundations. This research considers a jacket-founded OWT. The development of...

Floating Offshore Wind Turbines (FOWTs) pave the way to accessing deep water regions with abundant wind resources that are unreachable to bottom-fixed turbines. This technology is not widely deployed due to the increased cost of producing energy. A suitable control strategy can improve the power quality and extend the lifespan of the FOWT,...

Due to increasing environmental concerns and global energy demand, the development of Floating Offshore Wind Turbines (FOWTs) is on the rise. FOWTs offer a promising solution to expand wind farm deployment into deeper waters with abundant wind resources. However, their harsh operating conditions and lower maturity level compared to fixed...

This research investigates the dynamic response of offshore wind turbine (OWT) systems subject to ice-structure-soil interaction (ISSI). To simulate the behavior of level ice sheets, a coupled approach involving the cohesive element method (CEM) and the finite element method (FEM) is applied. For soil-structure interaction (SSI), the Mohr...

The global installed capacity of floating offshore wind turbines is projected to increase by at least 100 times over the next decades. Station-keeping of floating offshore renewable energy devices is achieved through the use of mooring systems. Mooring systems are exposed to a variety of environmental and operational conditions that cause...

Floating offshore wind turbines (FOWTs) unlock the potential to harness energy from wind in deeper waters. Despite their potential, the major obstacle to large-scale commercial deployment remains the floating substructure's high cost. Multidisciplinary design, analysis and optimisation techniques are commonly employed to improve their cost...

Schipper, Jurrien (author)
Modelling of Floating Offshore Wind Turbines (FOWTs) is challenging due to the strong coupling between the aerodynamics of the turbine and the hydrodynamics of the floating structure, which makes the dynamic response of the whole system highly complex. A variety of numerical approaches can be used to predict this response.<br/><br/>The frequency...

This paper investigates the technical, life cycle, and economic feasibility of a 30 MW upscaled downwind turbine, comparing it to a 15 MW X1 Wind PivotBuoy downwind turbine and a benchmark 15 MW IEA Umaine VolturnUS-S upwind turbine in the 450 MW Sud de la Bretagne I wind farm site. The study is significant due to the rising energy demand, the...

de Ridder, Jesse (author)
The offshore wind market is rapidly growing, resulting in increasing wind turbine sizes, increasing distances to port, and a shift to deeper waters. A literature study in this thesis shows that existing wind turbine installation vessels, vessels under construction, and innovative concepts will not be able to install next-generation turbines or...

With the rising demand for renewable energy, floating offshore wind turbines have gained importance, particularly in regions where deep waters prevent the use of traditional monopile structures. These floating turbines rely on mooring lines for stability against environmental conditions, particularly when facing strong winds and high waves....

As the urge to decarbonise the energy field becomes increasingly important, a growing interest is shown in wind turbine technologies. In particular, the past few years have seen the development of floating offshore wind turbines for applications in deep waters.<br/><br/>In addition to the harsher environment they are facing, these wind turbines...

The replacement of conventional generation units with variable renewable energy sources could have a negative impact on the balance of supply and demand of electricity. Moreover, since the variable renewable energy sources are inverter based and therefore decoupled from the grid, the overall grid inertia will decrease. To solve this problem, the...

Large scale wind farms consisting with floating offshore wind turbines (FOWTs) will be a solution for offshore wind energy industry to access more wind resources. However, wake structures and wake interactions of FOWTs subject to motions are still not yet been fully understand, especially when they are under turbulent inflow conditions with...

Spijkerman, Danny (author)
Due to the increased share of (offshore) wind turbines, more stringent power requirements have been established. Importantly, the low-voltage ride-through requirement states that a wind turbine must remain connected to the electrical grid after a short intermittent grid fault. In the industry and academia many solutions have been proposed, but...

The success of offshore wind farm installations is often related to the costs and time taken to be completed. Current installation strategies require several critical offshore lifts for the completion of a single wind turbine, as in most cases each component gets installed separately. This is time-consuming and has a direct link to the cost of...

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...

Due to the growing demand for offshore wind energy and the increasing wind turbine sizes, a shortage of capable installation vessels is anticipated by 2024. Consequently, the utilisation of heavy-lift vessels, previously not employed for bottom-founded or floating offshore wind turbine installations, may become imperative to realise the offshore...

The increased consciousness of the negative impact of human-induced climate change has resulted in rapid developments within the offshore wind industry. With Wind Turbine Generators (WTGs) becoming increasingly larger and available shallow water sites becoming scarcer, new offshore wind solutions must be developed to accomplish the goals set by...
