MooringSense

Objectives

MooringSense aims at reducing FOW operational costs by 10-15% and increasing operational efficiency by means of an increase of Annual Energy Production by 2-3%, through the development of more efficient strategies and tools for mooring system integrity management and control.

MooringSense

Technology

MooringSense will take advantage of mooring systems’ updated condition information, provided by a Digital Twin (DT) and innovative monitoring technologies, to allow the implementation risk-based integrity management plans and more holistic control strategies to reduce OPEX and increase energy production of FOW farms.
