ABS publishes classification paper

April 9 - Offshore classification services provider the American Bureau of Shipping (ABS) has released its Guide for Building and Classing Floating Offshore Wind Turbine Installations.

The new guide suggests criteria for design, construction, installation and survey of permanently sited floating offshore wind turbines. It provides specific guidelines for areas subject to cyclonic storms.
 
According to ABS managing principal engineer, offshore technology, Qing Yu: "What makes floating offshore wind turbines unique is the strong interaction among the wind turbine rotor, turbine control systems, floating hull structure and stationkeeping system.
 
"We took this interaction into account, developing the criteria based on understanding the characteristic global responses of representative floating offshore wind turbine designs that included a tension leg platform, semisubmersible and spar," he added.
 
The Guide for Building and Classing Floating Offshore Wind Turbine Installations is available to download from the ABS website (link below).
