UMass Amherst engineers developing multi-line anchor system for floating offshore wind turbines

By Michelle Froese The research goal is to develop a moor for floating wind turbines using a networked series of anchors and cables that holds the entire wind farm in place.
A team of researchers that includes two engineers from the University of Massachusetts Amherst is developing a new mooring system for floating offshore wind turbines that uses an integrated network of anchors and lines to hold dozens or even hundreds of turbines in place in the ocean in industrial-scale, offshore wind farms.
Civil and environmental engineers Sanjay R. Arwade and Don J. DeGroot from UMass Amherst, along with Charles P. Aubeny from Texas A&M
