The main dimensions of the present design have been optimized for a 5 MW wind turbine in 50 m water depth of the Central North Sea.
The total angle of roll and pitch (static + dynamic) is less than 10 deg both in operational and in survival conditions. The accelerations of the unit are acceptable for a normal design of the tower and the various bearings.
It might be advantageous to build the wind turbine and semisubmersible floater at different locations at great distance from the wind park. The mating of the wind turbine and the floater can be done in a harbour or other sheltered place. The tow out and offshore hook-up only requires relatively small boats. Although the unit will be designed for low maintenance, it is easily possible to bring the unit inshore for major repair, if required.
For a large offshore floating wind farm in accordance with this concept the production cost is estimated at 0.06 to 0.07 EURO/ kWhr.
