Tension mooring stabilised units are one type of platform being considered by the offshore wind energy industry. The complex mooring arrangement used by this type of platform means that the dynamics are greatly effected by offsets in the positioning of the anchors. This paper examines the issue of tendon anchor position tolerances. The dynamic effects of three positional tolerances are analysed in survival state using the time domain FASTLink. The severe impact of worst case anchor positional offsets on platform and turbine survivability is shown. The worst anchor misposition combinations are highlighted and should be strongly avoided. Novel methods to mitigate this issue are presented.||Funding Details:||Science Foundation Ireland||Type of material:||Journal Article||Publisher:||IOP Publishing||Journal:||Journal of Physics: Conference Series||Volume:||753||Issue:||9||Copyright (published version):||2016 the Authors||Keywords:||Wind energy; Wind turbines; Tendon anchor position tolerances; Turbine survivability||DOI:||10.1088/1742-6596/753/9/092019||Language:||en||Status of Item:||Peer reviewed|
