Marine wind energy business competitiveness is strongly related to offshore substructures and their logistics. With the aim of avoiding oil and gas methodologies to reduce installation costs, some designs make use of multi-floater systems linked by cables. Optimization of these systems in search of larger operational windows increments the likelihood of snap-load event occurrence. This work describes the analysis of cable load during physical model simulation of a DEMOGRAVI3 installation procedure applying statistical and signal-processing methods. The authors describe a simple methodology to define the maximum load threshold for a given mooring line set-up in order to avoid snap loads. View Full-Text
