WP6: Operation & Maintenance Strategies, Sensorisation & Monitoring.

WP6: Operation & Maintenance Strategies, Sensorisation & Monitoring.

WP6 will improve Installation techniques, Offshore operations, Marine management and O&M techniques in deep waters (100m-600m) assessing potential cost savings and impacts on O&M strategies.

WP leader: UNEXE.

The objectives are:

  • Develop an integrated control and monitoring system able to visualise and monitor real time data during operation and installation.
  • Optimise installation techniques promoting onshore operations during construction, assembly and commissioning.
  • Enhance marine management and offshore operations considering active vessel guidance and safety aspects of crew transfer.
  • Develop proactive and predictive maintenance strategies reducing failure events and increasing yield for FOW lifetime optimisation.

WP leader: MARIN.

The objectives are:

  • Validate mooring system performance and durability through large scale components testing in UNEXE (physical scale: 5m mooring cables & ̴1/5 polymer spring component).
  • Evaluate integral system dynamics and interactions through reduced scale global prototype in MARIN (physical scale: 1/60 – 1/50).
  • Validate power cable performance and integrity through extensive physical testing in UNEXE (physical scale: ̴1/4).
  • Verify aging, antifouling and anti-bite properties of new materials (samples of epoxy, polyolefins & plastisols) through tests in real sea conditions (PLOCAN).
