OrcaFlex Mooring Simulation of a Tidal Turbine Platform
Mooring analysis of an existing tidal turbine platform.
After several years in operation this platform’s export cable broke. To investigate the cause, an OrcaFlex model was created to represent the as-built moorings and cabling characteristics and to understand what caused the critical failure.
An accurate working model of the as-built platform was built alongside a Python script to run multiple environment conditions.
