Press release: German-French research project for deep-water offshore wind energy – VAMOS/FLOATEOLE
VAMOS/FLOATEOLE is launched to further reduce the cost of floating offshore wind!
Offshore wind is taking the next step: floating foundations for deeper waters are becoming a tested and proven technology. How can we further reduce their cost to accelerate their deployment?
A good understanding of floating offshore wind turbines is essential to decrease the uncertainties and risks – and thus the costs – of this very promising technology. The project “Validation, Measurement and Optimization of Floating Wind Energy” (VAMOS) addresses this challenge.
At sowento, a team of hydrodynamic, mechanical, and control experts are collaborating to achieve the project goals. With our deep understanding of the coupled dynamics of floating wind turbines and our expertise in the lidar technology and control engineering we will address main tasks of current challenges in floating wind.
