Environmental data for the site dedicated to OC3 Hywind (320 m depth)

Hello everyone,

I am searching the environmental data of the site where OC3 Hywind (5 MW spar floater) is designed to (320 m depth).

In fact, i dont want to use data from sites not having 320 m depth in order to avoid re-designing the mooring system and the anchors.

Could anyone help me please ?

Best Regards,


Dear @Riad.Elhamoud,

The site conditions for the NREL 5-MW baseline wind turbine atop the OC3-Hywind spar were never specified. (Rather, the OC3-Hywind spar was based on data provided by Stotoil for their conceptual Hywind spar for a 5-MW turbine). You’ll have to make your own assumptions for your own purposes.

At 320-m water depth, I would not expect much influence of the water depth on waves.

Best regards,
