STABILITY ANALYSIS OF THE FLOATING OFFSHORE WIND TURBINE SUPPORT STRUCTURE OF CELL SPAR TYPE DURING ITS INSTALLATION
The article presents the results of selected works related to the wider subject of the research conducted at the Faculty of Ocean Engineering and Ship Technology of the Gdansk University of Technology, which concerns design and technology of construction, towing, and settlement on the seabed, or anchoring, of supporting structures for offshore wind farms. As a result of this research, several designs of this type of objects were developed, including two stationary types: gravitational and Jack-up, which are placed on the seabed, and two floating types: TLP and SPAR, anchored with tendons and anchors in the form of nailed or suction piles. Below presented is the stability analysis of the new floating CELL SPAR type support structure for offshore wind turbines during its installation in waters with a depth of over 65 m.
Keywords:towing and installation of SPAR platforms, anchoring of SPAR type platforms, calculation of dynamic loads in anchor ropes
