FLOTANT

Objectives

Objectives

The main objective of FLOTANT project is to develop the conceptual and basic engineering, including performance tests of the mooring and anchoring systems and the dynamic cable to improve cost-efficiency, increased flexibility and robustness to a hybrid concrete-plastic floating structure implemented for DWWF. Innovative solutions will be designed to be deployed in wáter depths from 100m to 600m, optimizing the LCOE of the floating solution (85-95 €/MWhby 2030). his will be achieved through the following specific objectives:

  • To develop a lightweight, smart and high-performance mooring cabling.
  • To optimize mooring line seabed, anchoring and platform connections.
  • To develop a lightweight and high-performance dynamic cabling.
  • To develop novel components to facilitate quick Plug & Play operations.
  • To develop a new solution for offshore floating substructure.
  • To optimise global performance of the integrated FLOTANT solution.
  • To validate FLOTANT main components.
  • To design and assess a cost-efficiency installation and removal techniques based on
    FLOTANT novel components.
  • To develop a full controlled and remote monitoring floating technology.
  • To assess and quantify FLOTANT system cost reductions.
  • To maximise project sustainability and assess the environmental impact reduction of the novel designed FOW solution.
  • To maximite socio-economic impacts of FLOTANT. Including public engagement and social acceptance.
