Strainstall, a part of James Fisher and Sons, has been awarded a contract to provide mooring monitoring for the Hywind pilot park – the world’s first floating offshore wind farm.

The contract with MacGregor will provide an integrated offshore mooring solution for the floating turbines.

The Hywind pilot park off the coast of Peterhead, Scotland, is being developed by Statoil. The site will consist of five, 6 MW floating turbines, with production of the first turbine expected in late 2017.

Each floating turbine will be moored to the seabed via MacGregor’s chain stoppers which will incorporate Strainstall’s strain ring monitoring sensors to provide accurate mooring load information.

The mooring monitoring system will monitor the different stresses placed on the turbines that could affect the performance of the structures and the mooring lines, the company explained.
