"The EERA Deep wind conference combines serious offshore wind research, offshore science and offshore engineering in a matter of fact form. Participation puts those at the event at the cusp of offshore research in progress and while showing the solutions needed to drive the further development of offshore wind. It is the intellectual equivalent of a good tough skiing holiday." Aidan Cronin, Siemens/Chair ETIPwind
EERA DeepWind 2020 is an international event aiming to present the best on-going research and innovation related to deep sea offshore wind farms, both bottom-fixed and floating. The conference is hosted by SINTEF and NTNU and organized in cooperation with the European Energy Research Alliance (EERA) joint programme on wind energy.
The conference has been developing every year since 2004, and is established as an important venue on deep sea offshore wind R&D. The programme includes a mix of plenary presentations with broad appeal and presentations in parallel sessions or by posters on specific science and technology themes.
Topics included are:
- New turbine and generator technology
- Grid connection and system integration
- Met-ocean conditions
- Operation & maintenance
- Installation and sub-structures
- Wind farm optimization
- Experimental testing and validation
- Wind farm control systems
The max number of attendances is 200, making it a compact event, and a nice opportunity for networking.
