Project whose main objective is to develop a maintenance program to control remotely from control centers located on the continent, floating wind farms located offshore of the future and thus reduce costs by reducing the number of operations to be performed on structures in service. A management system of the structural integrity of a floating wind farm will be developed. It will integrate the following functions:

  • Automatic and continuous registration of important data for service (plate thickness, cracks, vibrations, etc..) via fixed sensors.
  • Management of a  HCM (Hull Condition Model) database  gathering information from various sources  for modeling.
  • Evaluation of the condition of the structure with a program of finite elements in which the thicknesses measured and any faults are automatically integrated.
  • Generation of inspection plans based on an analysis of risk factors.
  • Real-time support for decision making for maintenance or emergency response.
