Dr. Magdalena Kurkowska shares a brief overview of research into next generation drive trains, corrosion protection, and the improvements on jacket foundation design, manufacturing, and installation.
This OWI Lab report goes into detail on what specific monitoring techniques of existing wind farm substructures are necessary to gain insights into fatigue life for design optimisation of future wind farms
Technological advances in floating wind will open up opportunities to exploit the abundant wind resource in deeper water sites where it is currently not possible to deploy fixed-bottom foundations, making this an important area of research for the offshore wind industry. This article, written by By Robert Proskovics and Gavin Smart, ORE Catapult, analyses the costs and risks of the three most common types of floating wind structure and compares them to those of a fixed-bottom monopile wind farm.
