The WP Installation, monitoring and O&M has prepared two video's to visualise the processes of the HLV Orion installing anchor piles with vibro-hammering and the Offshore installation with OCV and anchor handling tugs
One of the key element in the first year of the Space@Sea is the basic design of the floaters building up the flexible floating island. The starting point of the project was a triangular shape of the floater because connected triangles move more flexible with respect to each other. From a practical point of view, triangles are not optimal. Because of this, Space@Sea reviewed other shapes and sizes of the floater in the concept design. This resulted in the decision to use rectangular floaters with a side length of 45 metres for the small floater and 90 metres for the large floater.
Horizon 2020 project Space @Sea partners GICON and the University of Rostock have implemented an important focus of the project with the concept design of a living and working hub and a self-sufficient energy supply system
Dr. Frank Adam, Space@Sea representative for GICON and the University of Rostock, is satisfied with the progress of work for the development of an operation & maintenance platform and the development of a power storage system. The report was handed over in June. "We have comprehensively worked on the tasks assigned to us and are well ahead of the calculated schedule for implementation. This now gives us the security to stringently evaluate all possible solutions, which is needed for the subsequent detailed engineering phase".
Horizon 2020 project Space @Sea has had a flying start. Flowing on the momentum of interest in the media and industry for the topic of multi-use offshore platforms, Space@Sea has received a lot of attention. At the kick off meeting in November 2017 the energy was buzzing. With high expectations comes a large responsibility which is felt by the project.
This project has received funding from the European Union’s Horizon 2020 research and innovation programme under grant agreement No. 774253.
The SPACE@SEA project spans three years, running from November 1st, 2017 to November 1st, 2020.
