Cost Reduction in Supporting Infrastructure - Moorings and Foundations
TTI Marine Renewables Ltd
This landscape study demonstrates that there are clear opportunities to make an impact on the cost of energy of wave power through further development and innovation in mooring components, foundations and associated subsystems. The study has been conducted in four main work packages which include:
- State-of-the-Art desk study review of the current mooring and foundation landscape
- Voice of the Customer survey
- Moorings & Foundations Innovation through a TRIZ workshop
- Mooring & Foundation Case Studies
The combined output of these work streams was then used to identify R&D opportunities which could have a positive impact on the future wave power cost of energy.
Project partners were University of Exeter and Black & Veatch.
The objective of this Mooring and Foundation Landscaping Study was to give an overview of the current landscape while exploring the potential of mooring and foundation innovations to make an impact on reducing the cost of energy for wave energy converters (WECs).View Details
