OFFSHORE WIND: RESOURCE ASSESSMENT AND TECHNOLOGIES
April 14 @ 8:00 am - April 16 @ 5:00 pm
With respect to the latest news regarding COVID-19, the organizing committee has taken the decision to cancel the course, and to postpone until the situation gets controlled.
We are very sad to have to take this decision but we consider it to be the best option because of the situation we are in.
We will restart the organization of the course as soon as possible.
This course is organized by IHCantabria within the framework of PORTOS project (EAPA 784/2018), co-financed by the Interreg Atlantic Area Programme through the European Regional Development Fund.
The course includes basic training on wind dynamics, the development and modeling of the wind resource in coastal areas, a description of the available wind databases resources, the characterization of the main wind environmental conditions and technological considerations for the exploitation of this resource in ports. In addition, case-studies are included, such as a numerical simulation of wind fields in coastal areas.
This 3-day course has been designed for the public from the AA region (Portugal, Spain, France, United Kingdom and Ireland) interested in the exploitation of the wind resource within a port area, and attendees will not need previous experience in this field.
The course will cover the following topics (see courses schedule on our web):
- Introduction to Wind dynamics.
- The Wind climate.
- Met-ocean information required for the OWT (waves and currents).
- Wind databases.
- Atmospheric modeling to simulate wind climate and evaluate wind energy resource.
- Wind quality evaluation.
- Developments and standards for design of Offshore wind technologies.
- Components of the offshore wind technologies.
- Aspects involved in the design of OWT.
- Offshore wind farm systems.
Places are limited to 25 and the registration deadline is 27th March 2020.
The course is free of charge (Coffees and lunches are included. Accommodation is NOT INCLUDED).
