Recovery Act: DeepCwind Consortium National Research Program: Validation of Coupled Models and Optimization of Materials for Offshore Wind Structures
CX(s) Applied: B3.1, B3.3, B3.6, A9
Office(s): Energy Efficiency and Renewable Energy, Golden Field Office
The objective for this project is to focus on furthering the development of floating offshore wind farm technologies for deep water deployments. Project activities will include curriculum development; field studies; environmental monitoring; cost analyses; lab studies to validate aeroelastic-hydrodynamlc models and floating platform designs for floating turbines; and the installation of one to three scale-model floating wind turbine platforms.
