Critical review of floating support structures for offshore wind farm deployment

Research output: Contribution to conferencePoster

Abstract

Current situation: - numerous deep water sites with promising wind potential → floating structures possible, bottom-fixed systems not; Current situation: - large diversity in floater concepts → fast achievement of high technology readiness levels (TRLs) inhibited. Thus, different floating support structures are assessed with respect to their suitability for offshore wind farm deployment. Based on a survey, a multi-criteria decision analysis (MCDA) is conducted, using the technique for order preference by similarity to ideal solution (TOPSIS). With the individual scores of ten floater categories, considering the weighting of ten specified criteria, suitable concepts are identified and potential hybrid designs, combining advantages of different solutions, are suggested.
