CFD applied to offshore solar power

Publisert: 10. February, 2022

In close collaboration with Moss Maritime we have performed CFD calculations of current and wind loads on their and Equinor's exciting concept for floating solar cells in rough seas. The simulations were conducted on both model and full scale, for a single floater as well as for the entire park as a whole. The work is a continuation of model tests performed by SINTEF Ocean to generate load coefficients for use in global analyzes of hydrodynamics / structure.

We want to thank Ingrid Lome and Moss Maritime for great teamwork!
