Abstract

The Gulf of Bothnia has the potential for large capacity wind farms because of relatively high and constant wind velocities. However, the sea freezes annually, introducing the most significant uncertainties in the support structure design for offshore wind turbines. This presentation introduces an ice load portal that simplifies and speeds up the preliminary design process for offshore wind farms. The design portal integrates all necessary information (site-specific environmental data, structural design, and environmental loads) into a single tool. This study demonstrates the functionality of the ice load design portal with case studies and introduces some validation studies.
