Fórum Portugal Energy Power: The WindFloat Project - EDP Fórum Portugal Energy Power: The WindFloat Project - EDP Presentation Transcript

  • The WindFloat Project WindFloat 2 MW Floating Offshore Wind Coimbra, 19th of November, 2013 Pedro Valverde EDP Inovação
  • Agenda 1. Why Floating Offshore Wind? 2. WindFloat Technology 3. The WindFloat Project 4. Preliminary performance analysis 5. Conclusions The WindFloat Project 2
  • Why Floating Offshore Wind? Why Offshore Wind? • • • • Higher wind resource and less turbulence Large ocean areas available Best onshore wind locations are becoming scarce Offshore wind, including deep offshore, has the capacity to deliver large amount of energy Why Floating Offshore Wind? • • • • • Limited locations with shallow waters (mostly in the North Sea) Most of the offshore wind resource is in deep waters Unlimited installation sites available Less restrictions for offshore deployments and reduced visual impacts Enormous potential around the world: PT, Spain, UK, France, Norway, Italy, the Americas, Asia … The WindFloat Project 3
  • Agenda 1. Why Floating Offshore Wind? 2. WindFloat Technology 3. The WindFloat Project 4. Preliminary performance analysis 5. Conclusions The WindFloat Project 4
  • The WindFloat Technology The main characteristics of the WindFloat leads to High Stability even in rough seas Turbine Agnostic • Conventional turbine (3-blade, upwind) • Changes required in control system of the turbine High Stability Performance • Static Stability - Water Ballast • Dynamic Stability - Heave Plates and active ballast system - Move platform natural response above the wave excitation (entrained water) - Viscous damping reduces platform motions • Efficiency – Closed-loop Active Ballast System Depth Flexibility (>40m) Assembly & Installation • Port assembly – Reduced risk and cost • No specialized vessels required, conventional tugs • Industry standard mooring equipment The WindFloat Project 5
  • The WindFloat Technology Due to the features of the WindFloat, the risk and cost of offshore works is significantly reduced The WindFloat… … requires NO PILLING …is structurally decoupled from seadbed …is independent from depth …is assembled and commissioned quayside …does NOT require high lift capacity vessels Reduced Risk and Cost The WindFloat Project 6
  • The WindFloat Technology Total displacement of the WindFloat is 2.750 ton. Total weight of the hull is 1.200 ton Structure Dimensions The WindFloat Project 7
  • The WindFloat Technology The WindFloat Project EDP and Principle Power sign MOA for phased development of WindFloat technology and commercial deployment of a wind farm up to 150MW EDP initiates the WindFloat Project with the demonstration of a WindFloat unit with 2MW wind turbine generator grid connected to be installed in Aguçadoura Wave tank testing of 1:67th scale WindFloat model at University of California, Berkeley tow tank December 2011 July 2009 Principle Power purchases outright all intellectual property for WindFloat from MI&T May 2009 Principle Power exclusively licenses WindFloat intellectual property from MI&T April 2009 September 2008 March 2007 Wave tank testing of 1:80th scale Minifloat III concept at Oceanic June 2008 Wave tank testing of 1:96th scale Minifloat IV concept at University of California, Berkeley tow tank Minifloat patent 2 isssued US7281881 Wave tank testing of 1:96th scale WindFloat model at University of California, Berkeley tow tank January 2009 MI&T files Minifloat patent 1 Minifloat patent 1 issued US7086809, Minifloat patent 2 filed August 2006 Wave tank testing of Minifloat I & II concept June 2004 January 2004 August 2006 MI&T performs Minifloat proof of concept model tests June 2003 January 2003 WindFloat technology development – derived from an O&G concept and is now being tested full scale at sea First electron at Aguçadoura 8
  • Agenda 1. Why Floating Offshore Wind? 2. WindFloat Technology 3. The WindFloat Project 4. Preliminary performance analysis 5. Conclusions The WindFloat Project 9
  • The WindFloat Project The WindFloat project is structured to follow a phased / risk mitigation approach Phase 1 – Demonstration Capacity: 2MW WindFloat prototype Location: Aguçadoura, grid connected ~6 km of coast, 40 - 50 m water depth Turbine: 2MW offshore wind turbine Test period: 24+ months Phase 2 - Pre-commercial Capacity: ~27MW (~5 WindFloat units) Location: Portuguese Pilot Zone Turbine: Likely Vestas and other, Multi MW Phase 3 - Commercial Capacity: 150MW, gradual build-out Location: TBD Turbine: TBD The WindFloat Project 10
  • The WindFloat Project The WindFloat project was structured as a Joint Venture, WindPlus The Project is promoted by… …in a joint venture… WindPlus …and counts with the support of… The WindFloat Project 11
  • The WindFloat Project The development of the WindFloat project carried enormous challenges due to the lack of know-how in Portugal The project followed a risk mitigation approach but… …the challenges were enormous… …project being done for the first time …Lack of offshore know-how in Portugal …different cultures involved(US, Denmark, Portugal, France) …Collaboration between two different industries that have never worked together (Oil & Gas and Wind Industry) … Standards & Rules for design exist but need to adapted The WindFloat Project 12
  • The WindFloat Project The project followed the typical stages of an engineering project Project Planning Pre-FEED FEED Engineering Detailed Drawings & Construction Drawings Site detailed charact. Scope Definition Design Basis Project Execution Scope and Prel. Eng. Defined? Detailed Eng. Drawings & Philosophy FEED Defined? Equipment Procurement Fabrication & Installation Risk Mitigation Activities The WindFloat Project 13
  • The WindFloat Project Effective Risk Management must be embed into the project since the very early beginning Risk Management methodologies implemented through out the project were key for the success of the project • HAZID – Hazard Identification Study • Conducted at an early stage of the project • Focus in the Project Execution stage • Provided inputs to the FEED stage • HAZOP – Hazard and Operability Study • Several workshops conducted during FEED • Participants were the teams involved in the activities and engineering team • Provides input to the FEED stage • HIRA – Hazard Identification and Risk Assessment • Workshop conducted prior to execution of the activities • Plan and procedures of each activities already defined • Outcome provides inputs to reduce the risk while executing the activities The WindFloat Project 14
  • The WindFloat Project The project was implemented under a tight scheduled Project was completed in less than 2,5 years Fabrication completed in less than 9 months Task Project Start Timeline Sep, 09 Jan, 10 Pre-FEED PDR FEED Sep, 10 Turbine Selection Final Investment Decision Project Execution Detail Design Fabrication Offshore Installation Sep, 11 Sep, 11 May, 11 Sep, 11 Nov, 11 Dez, 11 Offshore Commissioning Testing and Monitoring … Ago, 13 Significant space to improve project implementation schedule! The WindFloat Project 15
  • Workshop Fabrication of main components A. Silva Matos was the responsabilbe for the fabrication of the WindFloat The WindFloat Project 16
  • Pre-assembly of the columns outside the Dry-dock in Setúbal The WindFloat Project 17
