This evening seminar will present the first ever wind turbine installation project when the WTG has been lifted as a single unit and installed onto floating foundation. This installation has been performed by Saipem’s crane vessel S7000 for the Hywind project in Summer 2017. In total, 5 WTGs have been successfully installed.
This seminar will focus on challenges faced by Saipem during the design and engineering stage. The floating wind turbine installation is very different from traditional offshore heavy-lift projects. It requires a very good knowledge from various engineering disciplines (hydrodynamics, mooring, structures, aerodynamics and etc.) and a comprehensive modelling of all environmental effects (wind, waves and current). This project is a good example when innovation combined with excellent teamwork lead to a successful installation.
The presentation will also include the photographs and videos from the operations as well as conclusions on the validation of Saipem’s engineering model.
