University of Plymouth launches new Dynamic Positioning simulator

Matt Hodson from Celtic Sea Power recently attended the launch of the University of Plymouth’s new Dynamic Positioning (DP) simulator, which was delivered as part of the Cornwall FLOW Accelerator (CFA) project. The Cornwall FLOW Accelerator is a collaborative project funded by ERDF, led by Celtic Sea Power, with the University of Plymouth, the University of Exeter and the Offshore Renewable Energy Catapult working as partners to streamline research and development for offshore floating wind in the Celtic Sea.

The new Kongsberg K-Sim DP simulator at the University of Plymouth forms part of their Maritime Simulation Laboratory. The DP simulator will be used to test, simulate and optimize marine operations throughout the lifecycle of FLOW operations.

At Celtic Sea Power, we are excited to start understanding what floating offshore wind means in terms of operational loads, vessel emissions, operability and more! Matt Hodson would like to congratulate Adan Lopez-Santander, Tom Crichton and the rest of the University of Plymouth team for making this possible and thank them for all their hard work!
