Abstract

This paper presents a geotechnical engineering
perspective on the design of anchoring systems for floating wind
turbines and floating wave energy converters. It explores several
transformational research directions in anchor technology and
anchor design, moving away from standards established for
floating oil and gas structures, and acknowledging the
particularities of floating renewable energy devices. This
approach is believed to be necessary to generate the significant
cost savings required for floating renewables to be commercially
affordable and commercially competitive, considering the high
contribution of moorings and anchors to the total capital cost of
floating renewables
