The offshore wind resources found globally present a great opportunity for power generation. Floating foundations will play a major role in utilizing these resources. The GICON®-Tension Leg Platform (TLP) is meant to provide a solution for harnessing the power of offshore wind. The project is a joint development of private industry and academic institutions. Currently ongoing research includes the comparison of calculated data with actual experimental data obtained through wave tank experiments with a scale model. These tests have provided insights regarding the dynamic characteristics of the GICON®-TLP by analyzing the eigenfrequencies.
