MooringSense was presented by Worley at the first London and South East Evening meeting of the year for the Society of Underwater Technology (SUT), titled ‘Challenges in Offshore Wind Developments’ on the 8th of March 2022.
The Society of Underwater Technology is a multidisciplinary learned society that aims to bring together organisations and individuals with an interest in underwater technology, ocean science and offshore engineering. It was founded in 1966 and has members in over 40 countries, including engineers, scientists, students, and other professionals working in these areas.
The event was a Hybrid Event, with attendees having the option to join online or in person in the Worley office in Brentford, London. Alessandro La Grotta (Integrity and Reliability Team Lead at Intecsea) and Róisín Harris (Asset Integrity Engineer at Intecsea) presented the Project under the title “Mooring Sense: A Risk Based Integrity Management Strategy for Mooring Systems in Floating Offshore Wind’.
The presentation spoke around Risk-Based Inspection, and how this can be applied to Mooring Systems for Floating Offshore Wind, and then detailed how the strategy then utilises the MooringSense digital twin and Structural Health Monitoring System, and how they have been integrated into the strategy to inform the quantification of risk and inspection activities.
There was a total of over 70 attendees worldwide, and the presentation was well received and initiated some great questions and discussion from the audience, as well as promoting the MooringSense project.
