Orsted Collaborated with Oxford University to Optimize Offshore Wind Turbines Performance

Offshore Wind Turbines

Denmark-based renewable power company, Orsted signed a five-year research agreement with the University of Oxford, U.K to optimize the design of foundation structures used for offshore turbines.

Orsted have teamed up with various universities to improve design and performance of offshore wind turbines. For instance, the company has also collaborated with Durham University, U.K to boost performance of wind turbines. Orsted described this as being the repeated loading that occurs from the action of both wind and waves on the structure and operation of the turbine
The company is focused on developing green energy solutions. It develops, constructs and operates offshore wind farms, bioenergy plants and innovative waste-to-energy solutions to provide smart energy products to customers. In 2016, the company’s revenue was DKK 61 billion (EUR 8.2 billion). “The partnership would allow the business to further mature our foundation designs to support even bigger turbines in even deeper waters, lowering costs and risk level at the same time,” said Christina Aabo, Orsted Wind Power’s head of R&D. The main aim of this research agreement is to focus on cyclic loading.

“This exciting new phase of collaboration with Orsted will put the next generation of offshore wind farms on more secure and cost-effective foundations through robust design methods for cyclic loading,” said Byron Byrne, professor of engineering science at the University of Oxford, said. “This will be challenging, but essential if the cost of offshore wind energy is to be further reduced.” Moreover, Orsted is involved with several major offshore wind projects, which include Hornsea Project Two, an offshore wind farm in the North Sea.
