Lankhorst Euronete Portugal is supplying mooring tethers to Windplus for the 25MW WindFloat Atlantic Project, offshore northern Portugal. The wind turbine generator (WTG) platforms will be moored at a water depth of 85 – 100 metres.
The WindFloat is a triangular shaped semi-submersible floater with a wind turbine erected on one of the columns. Each platform’s mooring system is made up of three catenary mooring lines of Gama98 rope construction made from Dyneema DM20 attached to chain and drag embedded anchors. The soft catenary mooring system will restrain the platform’s horizontal motions. The mooring lines will be pre-laid on the seabed, prior to the arrival of the WTG platform, and connected using platform mooring connectors.
