Adaptation and implementation of floating wind energy conversion technology for the Atlantic region
ARCWIND contributes to the transition from fixed to floating wind platform systems for use in deeper water and more exposed sites in the Atlantic Area by the assessment of wind energy potential with a regional atmospheric model and remote sensed data, the study of different types of floating high power wind turbines numerically and experimentally. Also case studies of farms will be considered for cost assessment, logistics and maintenance planning, as well as risk assessment.
