PROJECT 15 – ARCWIND

ARCWIND (Adaptation and implementation of floating wind energy conversion technology for the Atlantic region) aims to contribute to the transaction from fixed to floating wind platform systems for use in deep water and more exposed sites in the Atlantic Area by: the assessment of wind energy potential with a regional atmospheric model and remote sensed data; the study of different types of floating high power wind turbines numerically and experimentally; case studies of farms will be considered for cost assessment, logistics and maintenance planning as well as risk assessment.


Countries in the Atlantic Area have one of the world's best offshore wind resource. This industry is now progressing to deeper sites and the project aims to contribute to the viable industry development by facilitating the transition from fixed to floating platforms systems for use in deep water conditions and exposed sites in the Atlantic Area by: complementing the existing wind assessment studies using a multicriteria approach to select the best candidate location to receive wind farms; modelling and testing high power floating wind turbines considering multiple technologies and perform a multitude of studies related to the development of wind farms such as cost assessment, logistics and maintenance planning and risk analysis.


The project is financed by the INTERREG Atlantic Area Programme, has 15 different partners from the 5 countries that integrate the Atlantic Area and has a duration of 36 months.
