ORSIG webinar: Condition monitoring of floating wind turbine moorings

The ORSIG hosted a webinar which introduced a project developing a cost-effective condition monitoring system for Floating Offshore Wind Turbine (FOWT) mooring lines for the Carbon Trust’s Floating Wind Technology Acceleration Competition. The presentation was given by the lead consultant for Fugro’s subsea wellhead monitoring service, Stuart Killbourn.

In this project the consortium - led by Fugro, AS Mosley and the University of Strathclyde - developed a condition monitoring system for mooring lines of floating wind turbine assets that tracks fatigue and can also be used to detect the occurrence of various events or failure modes. Using such a system is intended to reduce or eliminate visual inspection by ROVs or divers thereby realising a significant cost saving.
