Wind Turbine Structure Training


About the course

Offshore wind development has witnessed a steady growth in the last decade. Floating wind turbines are a promising new technology in the field of offshore wind power development, particularly in deep water. In recent years, significant R&D effort has been spent in conceiving floater designs that are stiff enough to accommodate wind turbines and stable enough to cope with the highly dynamic environments that prevail in deep seas. Concomitantly, great amount of time has also been invested in developing design tools to accurately model and predict the dynamics of coupling wind turbines to floating structures. The course will deal with various aspects for the design and analysis of floating wind turbines including foundation.

Who should attend?

Engineers and researchers involved in the design of offshore floating wind turbines, Contracts engineers, Wind turbine Installation companies, Team leaders, Conversion Engineers, Project engineers and managers, offshore controls engineers, Safety inspectors will benefits from attending this course. The course is innovative in both content & structure with a careful balance of theory & practice.
