14:30 - 16:00 Innovation for the new frontier: Offshore
Turbine technology  

Room: Montmartre

Insightful overview of mainstream and trends in offshore wind as the industry achieves scale and approaches new challenges. Vision on potential breakthroughs or game-changers. Ideas for players involved.

  • Re-defining the state of the art: 8MW and 180m rotor
  • Pushing monopile design for up to 10MW WTG at up to 50m water depth
  • Prediction of dynamic response of floating offshore wind turbine

Learning objectives

  • Delegates will be able to list the mainstream and expected breakthroughs as offshore wind matures
  • Delegates will be able to summarize the opportunities and challenges in taking next generation large WTG from concept to market
  • Delegates will be able to identify the modeling necessary to develop monopiles feasible both for next-generation WTG and deeper waters
  • Delegates will be able to explain the effects of the mooring system on floating WTG dynamic behavior
