With their massive scale and economics, floating offshore wind farms will require innovative approaches, especially when it comes to the mooring systems that hold the floating turbines on location. This presentation will address the parallels (and differences) between moorings for floating wind and moorings for oil and gas production facilities. Many lessons can be learned from the over 40 years’ experience the oil and gas industry has accumulated in the station keeping of large offshore assets. Noticeable differences will undoubtedly prompt innovation, but the skills and experience of oil and gas companies and their engineering marine personnel are uniquely qualified for the challenge.
