TU Delft on board the world largest crane vessel for exploring future Offshore Wind Turbines

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.
