The overall objective of the FIBREGY project is to enable the extensive use of FRP materials in the structure of the next generation of large Offshore Wind and Tidal Power platforms. In order to achieve this objective, the project will develop, qualify and audit innovative FRP materials for offshore applications, elaborate new design procedures and guidelines, generate efficient production, inspection and monitoring methodologies, and validate and demonstrate advanced software analysis tools.
- Reducing the LCoE of the platform by using composite materials in the towers and the structure of the platform
- Improving the performance of the platform and avoid corrosion thanks to the application of composite materials
- Acquisition of highly valuable information from the monitoring system implemented in the FRP-based materials, which will allow to optimize W2Power design
