Ocean Renewable Energy
Moorsure has successfully designed a number of ocean renewable energy devices. We offer a detailed understanding of the challenges associated with designing moorings and foundations, enabling Moorsure to:
– Assist with the design of the often overlooked aspects of successful renewable energy devices; the moorings, foundations and equipment structures.
– Maximise energy conservation and minimise equipment fatigue through the comprehensive study of not only your device, but the mooring or foundation upon which it depends.
Novel renewable energy technologies require novel mooring solutions. Our team understand the requirement to bring the technology to market at minimum expense. Specifically, we offer:
– Specialist suppliers that can produce your trial unit to the required specifications at competitive rates and incorporate telemetry equipment as needed.
– Project management of the installation process. From defining requirements, sourcing vessels, conducting tender preparation and evaluation, and developing detailed procedures; through to witnessing and recording installation, and supervising the production of as built data records; our engineers can integrate with your project team to ensure installation schedules are achieved in line with broader project objectives.
Moreover, Moorsure can design inspection and maintenance regimes to meet the specific requirements of renewable energy devices. Our detailed fatigue analysis capability can accurately predict maintenance windows and allow development of a schedule that is designed to minimise cost and maximise operational output for your device. In addition to these planned maintenance regimes, we can also perform post storm analysis to minimise operational impact and provide assurance of mooring system integrity.
