    This report presents an overview of the design of the DeepWind vertical axis oating wind turbine. One could present this as the "nal design", however, it is hoped that more design iterations will follow in the future, but under the umbrella of new and dierent projects. The state of the design that is reported here will be called version 2.2.0. The numbering system has just been introduced at the present design version, but the rst 5MW design called the "baseline design" [1] was developed in 2011 and this will therefore be called version 1.0.0.
    In this report, the design loads of the DeepWind 5 MW turbine are presented. The loads are calculated using Hawc2 (ver 11.8). The turbine controller is implemented according to principles outlined in work package 4 (Turbine operational control), only the normal production part of the controller is implemented. Hence, the calculated design loads only covers normal operations. In the Chapter 3 and 2 the modelled design is and simulation scenarios are introduced. In Chapter 5 the estimated loads are presented in the form of plots. In Appendix A the simulated loads are tabulated, and the input data for the numerical HAWC2 model is given in Appendix B.
