MHM-EMR

Mooring health monitoring for marine renewable energy systems

Duration: 3 years

Project description

Anchoring systems used for floating wind turbines differ significantly from those used by the oil & gas sector due to high dynamics in shallow waters. Currently proposed solutions to satisfy these new constraints employ new dispositions and materials whose long-term behavior is poorly known and remains non-qualified. MHM-EMR proposes to define an in-service monitoring methodology in order to anticipate risks, optimize maintenance strategies and improve predictions of component longevity within anchor lines.

Objectifs

  • Identification of dimensioning parameters
  • Interpretation of measurements and updating of component longevity
  • Design and maintenance optimization through recommended components and procedures

Partners

Coordination: France Energies Marines
Scientific and technical management: Ecole Centrale Nantes
