Maximum capacity of the mooring lines of the 5 MW barge type FOWT

Dear @Jason.Jonkman,

I wanna ask you about the capacity of the mooring lines used in the 5 MW barge-type FOWT. I mean by “capacity of the mooring lines”, the maximum tension that can occur in the mooring line.

Thank you in advance.

Best Regards,


Dear @Riad.Elhamoud,

I’m not aware that the maximum capacity/tension of the mooring lines for the ITI Energy barge were ever defined by NREL. You should make your own assumptions for your own purposes.

Best regards,
