Project Summary

This study will examine the feasibility of using floating wind energy to power near-shore oil and gas assets such as idle, warm-stacked mobile offshore drilling units (MODUs) and shore bases. The project plans to use currently stacked MODUs as a test case to identify technology gaps associated with real world use of floating wind power for offshore assets. Examples of technology gaps include challenges associated with motions of a MODU, requirements for quick disconnect and reconnect in a harsh weather and ice environments. www.wesi.ca
