TU Delft on board the world largest crane vessel for exploring future Offshore Wind Turbines
How do you install a wind turbine far out at sea when high waves and strong winds make its installation virtually impossible? With this question in mind, a team of researchers from TU Delft, in collaboration with Heerema Marine Contractors (HMC) and DOT B.V., boarded the world's largest crane vessel this week: Heerema's Sleipnir. As part of a major pioneering project, the FOX project, they are exploring floating wind turbine installation. TU Delft researchers David Fidalgo Domingos, Peter Meijers and Panagiota Atzampou are on board.
