PivotBuoy. Advanced Single Point Mooring System for lighter, cost-effective and reliable 10MW+ Floating Wind

Project Details

Description

In this project is designed, developed and tested the PivotBuoy. An innovative single point mooring system with the potential to allow floating wind technology to reduce structural and installation costs while operating safely and reliably in harsh ocean conditions reliably. By implementing an engineering design process and a stepped testing and validation program of the different components including testing at the factory (FAT), at the port after the assembly (SAT) and after in a relevant environment at PLOCAN at 1:6 scale, the technology will be validated in a cost-effective manner reducing both the investment and risks that would be imply a full-scale demonstration project. This project has received funding from the European Union’s Horizon H2020 research and innovation programme under grant agreement No 815159
