1 Methodology for Risk Assessment of Floating Wind Substructures Roberts Proskovics, Offshore Renewable Energy Catapult 13 th Deep Sea Offshore Wind R&D Conference 21 st of January 2016 Qualification of innovative floating substructures for 10MW wind turbines and water depths greater than 50m The research leading to these results has received funding from the European Union Horizon2020 programme under the agreement H2020-LCE

2 Contents Introduction Risk assessment and management Methodology developed 4 risk areas Conclusions

3 Introduction A Horizon2020 project LIFES50+ Qualification of innovative floating substructures for 10MW wind turbines and water depths greater than 50m 40 months duration 7.3M 12 partners Work package 6 Uncertainty and risk management Developed for LIFES50+, but applicable outside

4 Introduction LIFES50+ Consortium Map generated on

5 Risk Assessment and Management Risk Assessment Risk Management Risk Identification Risk Analysis Risk Evaluation Risk Treatment ALARP Risk Acceptance

6 Methodology Introduction Why? No dedicated risk assessment methodology for floating wind How? Risk areas considered Technology Health, Safety and Environment (HSE) Manufacture Commercialisation Covers all life cycle phases Based on common techniques, but updated to meet specific requirements Mostly qualitative

7 Methodology Technology Composition Floating substructure is integration of multiple element technologies Technology composition analysis allows for: Improved understanding of the system being analysed Identify its elements Identify interdependencies Early risk identification Split into Functions (e.g. stability, structural integrity) System and sub-systems (e.g. crew transfer system, mooring system) Components/elements (e.g. anchors, transition piece)

8 Methodology Technology Composition Floating wind substructure Buoyancy Structural integrity Stability Power transmission Station keeping Rotor nacelle assembly interfacing Monitoring and communication Substructure Active Electrical interface (umbilical) Mooring system Electrical interface Crew transfer system Passive Yaw system Structural interface (transition piece) Mooring (catenary, taut, etc.) Tower Functions System / subsystem Anchors / piles Component Fairlead (Example functional hierarchy from LIFES50+ Risk Management for Deep Water Substructures )

9 Methodology Technology Categorisation Advances in technology are generally evolutionary Only some elements of technology are typically novel Dimensions of uncertainty of technology Novelty Application Technology categorisation prioritises areas of most uncertainty/risk Application Area Degree of Novelty of Technology Proven Limited Field History New or Unproven Known Limited Knowledge New Technology Category Indicator 1 No new technical uncertainties (proven technology) 2 New technical uncertainties 3 New technical challenges 4 Demanding new technical challenges (DNV GL, DNV-RP-A203 Qualification of New Technology, July )

10 Methodology HSE Split into Health and Safety Environment Health and Safety No dedicated H&S standards for floating wind or even offshore wind RenewableUK risk categories (24) + some specific FOWT categories Environment Source-Pathway-Receptor 4 dimensions of risk Risk to personal injury Potential pollution/societal losses Source-Pathway-Receptor (SPR) Potential economic consequence Risk to human life Source Pathway Receptor Consequence Source-Pathway-Receptor-Consequence (SPRC)

11 Methodology Manufacturing Proposed to use Manufacturing Readiness Levels (MRLs) MRLs vs TRLs Manufacturing risk areas (9 threads, 22 sub-threads) 3 dimensions of risk Cost Schedule Quality Risk treatment TRL 1 TRL 2 TRL 3 TRL 4 TRL 5 TRL 6 TRL 7 TRL 8 TRL 9 MRL 1 MRL 2 MRL 3 MRL 4 MRL 5 MRL 6 MRL 7 MRL 8 MRL 9 MRL 10 Material Solution Analysis Technology Development Manufacturing Maturation Plan (MMP) Engineering and Manufacturing Development Production and Deployment Operations and Support Disposal

12 Methodology Commercialisation Proposed to use Commercial Readiness Index (CRI) 6 levels (hypothetical commercial proposition to bankable asset class) CRI vs TRL Dimensions derived to judge commercial readiness: 8 dimensions 18 sub-categories

13 Methodology Commercialisation Commercial Readiness Index (CRI) Technology Readiness Level (TRL) Hypothetical commercial proposition Commercial Trial, Small-Scale Commercial Scale-Up Multiple commercial applications Market competition driving widespread development Bankable Asset Class Basic Research Technology Technology Development System/Subsystem Development Research to Prove Feasibility Technology Demonstration System Test, Launch & Operations (ARENA, Commercial Readiness Index for Renewable Energy Sector, 2014)

14 Conclusion Developed a bespoke methodology Will be tested in the following months Reduce risk Make FOWTs more attractive to investment Reduce LCoE (main aim we all are striving for) Applicable outside of floating substructures for floating wind D6.1 publicly available from 02/2016
