Cold water pipe deployment for Offshore OTEC Power Plants
B.J. Kleute, Bluerise BV
A cold water pipe is reauired to bring cold seawater of approximately 4-5C to the power plant at the sea surface. This pipe reaches out to 1000m depth. To limit the pressure drop over the pipe, a pipe diameter of around 2m up to 4m is selected, depending on the required cold seawater intake. Pipe deployment is expected to be one of the main challenges of OTEC. Critical during deployment is the pipe's ability to withstand the bending and tension loads. Different methodologies have been considered but non have left the drawing board yet.

"Dynamic analysis of a floating OTEC Power Plant"
B.J. Kleute, Bluerise BV
Floating OTEC plants consist, amongst others, of a floating structure for housing the power plant, and a slender cold water pipe which is free hanging and has an intake at about 1000m depth. The floating structure and the cold water pipe are connected and interact dynamically due to wave- and current-inducted motions. These interactions have to be considered and minimized in the design process of an OTEC plant in order to provide acceptable operating conditions and increase the system lifetime.

"Hydrodynamic interaction of an offshore floating support
structure and tidal energy converter"
Prof. Dr. A. Metrikine; Ir. Antonio Jarquin Laguna
This research focuses on the development of a coupled dynamic model by integrating the turbine and control system behaviour with a hydrodynamic model of a floating tidal energy conversion platform.
