Optimised power cable installation for coupled tension-torque behaviour

Coiled power cables on a ship next to offshore wind turbines.

For offshore wind turbine installations, the grid of subsea power cables represents a critical infrastructure for transporting the electric energy to the market. This includes both dynamic cables connecting the bottom-fixed/floating wind turbines to the seabed and sections of static cables linking each turbine to the grid and each wind farm to the market. During […]

COSMO – Computer tool for Optimisation and Simulation of Marine Operations

COSMO is a computer tool designed for analysis of marine operations in the installation phase of an offshore wind farm. It offers a digital representation of the logistical operations of an offshore wind farm, and is designed for early phase planning of offshore wind farm installation, built with a view to: Minimise the total time […]
