WIP10+: Wind Integrated Platform for 10+ MW Power per Foundation

The WIP 10+ project will demonstrate at sea and on a significant scale a fully integrated floating wind energy platform, Wind2Power, with two wind turbines of up to 6 MW each and which is also capable of accommodating additional functions due to its size.

The objectives of the innovation are:

  • Provide a floating base for high wind capacity.
  • Optimise operation and maintenance (O&M) procedures.
  • Demonstrate that cost reductions are possible by acting on both capital and O&M.
  • Improving the management of marine space.

The project addresses the need for cost reduction in offshore wind energy by providing a light but large semi-submersible platform with the capacity to house two 5-6 MW wind turbines for a total of 10-12 MW per platform.

The specific expected results are: validation of numerical and laboratory estimates of forces and motions, testing of engineering design including moorings and wind platform. In a broader sense, the expected results are: survival of the platform in winter conditions in a real marine environment, quantification of the cost reduction compared to two floating wind turbines, and optimisation and validation of specific installation, operation and maintenance procedures.
