COREWIND: COst REduction & INcrease Performance of Floating Wind Production

Project Description

COREWIND is a multi-national EU Horizon 2022 funded-project, which aims at achieving significant cost reductions and enhanced performance of floating wind technology via innovation, modelling and optimisation of floating, mooring and dynamic cabling designs.

Led by IREC – Research & development specialists in energy transition, the project includes the following partners: Innosea, Cobra, DTU, Equinor, Esteyco, EHCantabria, JDR Cables, Politechni of Milan, Ramboll, UL, University of Stuttgart, UPC and WindEurope.

Innosea’s scope of work

Innosea supports the project consortium with design and engineering optimisation services of station keeping systems – moorings and anchorings.

Innosea has also undertaken the joint design of mooring and dynamic subsea cabling.

The scope of work also includes structural analysis and design of fairleads, using finite element analysis, definition of installation strategies for the mooring systems including installation cost evaluation, loads assessment on the mooring system, cost optimisation and mooring fatigue analysis.
