Abstract

This paper introduces the concept of the multiple unit floating offshore wind farm (MUFOW) in which an offshore array of wind turbines is mounted upon a single floating structure, rather than the more usual system where each turbine has its own supporting platform. The advantages and disadvantages of the proposed arrangement are discussed in relation to a number of parameters including costs, stability, maintenance and impact damage, and the effect of system size is examined. A design methodology is outlined and a possible arrangement described. -Author
