The goal of this TO2 project is to strengthen the cooperation between Dutch research institutes on offshore wind energy. It has two subjects: floating wind energy (ECN, MARIN and Deltares) and helicopter movements in offshore wind farms (NLR and ECN).

For large areas of the world with deep water and high energy yield, floating wind turbines can be an economically feasible solution. Together with Deltares, ECN and MARIN will further extend their knowledge and integral approach of simulation and testing of floating wind turbines. Central aspect in this project is integration, both on content (wind turbine, floating support and mooring), as well as on organizational level (activities at ECN, MARIN and Deltares) to optimally support the industry with floating wind energy developments.

Maintenance of offshore wind farms will partly be done by helicopters, which makes knowledge on helicopter movements in (wakes of) offshore wind farms essential. This project will takes a first step into this overlapping field by knowledge sharing between NLR and ECN.
