First Subsea Figure 1 Ball and TaperDevelopments in Mooring Installation Technology for Floating Offshore Wind Structures

As floating wind turbines move into deeper waters, the capital expenditure (CAPEX) costs for mooring and installation will contribute a significant proportion of the overall project budget. Offshore wind developers are looking for a new mooring methodology to reduce costs, minimise installation times and reduce health and safety risks. The mooring of offshore wind platforms has been identified as the critical success factor in the future of floating offshore wind. High installation costs and the cost of anchoring are delaying and restricting the commercialisation of the sector.
