Offshore wind developers faces critical issues such as increased technical complexity related to platform and turbine stability, designing maximum sea states and wind conditions, increasing turbine sizes and mooring system selection. Furthermore, there is also need to achieve lower LCOE’s and an overall concern for labour requirements, supply chain development and logistics.
OSI Renewables™ are leaders in offshore floating structures industry, delivering complete turnkey wind solution packages, that streamlines engineering, procurement, construction, and installation process for developers, reducing costs and unlocking revenue. We help customers to optimize the entire wind power generation process safely and efficiently, while extending system and design life.
We have developed a complete turnkey floating wind solution that leverages OSI’s 40+ years of experience in offshore fixed and floating project installations.
The system is ideal for harsh wind and sea conditions and suitable for up to 16MW turbines at 1000m water depth.
The value that we bring to developers is a unique turnkey, ‘one-stop-shop’ aproach with a completely integrated floating wind package from seabed connections to turbine that has considered all the elements, is optimised through global analysis, which significantly reduces installation costs while simplifying procurement.”
Dynamic analysis is key to optimal design
By looking at the system as a whole, we are able to conquer the concept selection for floating structures quickly and efficiently. OSI’s RiserTec™ subsidiary takes design parameters such as water depth, sea states, and wind conditions, to carry out an in-depth analysis to determine optimal system design for best performance in the dynamic offshore environment.
Our turnkey approach drastically reduces complexity and total installed costs. We deliver a one-stop complete solution driven by a deep understanding of the global engineering design and analysis, that is optimised for manufacturing, and streamlined for installation/ service, significantly simplifying floating offshore wind projects.
