Project scope

The Offshore Wind Turbine is the focal point of this project and the object of the investigation. The main scientific concept incorporated within this project is finding the optimal design of OWT maximizing its reliability and minimizing its maintenance cost. Main OWT subsystems are represented by “vertical” Work Packages focusing on technical aspects.

There are two “horizontal” Work Packages integrating outcomes of the former “vertical” group and building further on their results. Fluid-Structure Interaction (FSI) approach is the scientific concept incorporated within this research-trough-training program to couple the particular subsystems of OWT.

A research and dissemination programme has been defined, consisting of 6 cross-linked WPs, as outlined in Flowchart 1. For a management of the ITN project and training organisation dedicated WP7 was defined.

One of the strategic objectives of the industrial initiative of the SET Plan on wind energy is to reduce cost of energy by...
