The Issue

Project Innovation

This project will develop comprehensive shared mooring system solutions that minimize the costs, failure risks, and environmental impacts of GW-scale floating wind farms in California site conditions. The approach combines state-of-the-art techniques for sharing mooring lines and anchors with installation and maintenance innovations that bring additional cost reductions and reliability improvements. Strategic use of shared mooring lines will make the designs especially resilient to anchor failures, which will be critical to the viability of large-scale floating wind farms in California.
