Title (EN) FLOATING OFFSHORE PLATFORM
(FR) PLATE-FORME FLOTTANTE EN HAUTE MER
Abstract:
(EN) A semisubmersible floating platform (1) for supporting at least one wind turbine, comprising four buoyant columns (3), each of them being attached to a ring pontoon (2); a transition piece (4) configured to support one wind turbine, disposed on the buoyant columns (3); and a heave plate (5) assembled to the internal perimeter of the ring pontoon (2). The ring pontoon (2) comprises four pontoon portions forming a quadrilateral-shaped ring pontoon (2) wherein the first end of each column (3) is attached to a respective corner of said quadrilateral-shaped ring pontoon (2). The heave plate (5) is located in the internal perimeter of the ring pontoon (2), both defining a hollow. The pontoon (2) is preferably divided into a plurality of compartments or construction blocks that may be filled with fixed ballast, such as concrete. The transition piece (4) has four arms arranged in star configuration and protruding from a central point at which the wind turbine is located, the connection between the transition piece (4) and the columns (3) being designed to be located above the sea splash zone. Each of the buoyant columns (3) comprises at least one ballast tank configured for allocating sea water in order to adjust the draft and to compensate for the inclination of the platform (1), said at least one ballast tank comprised in each column (3) being independent of the at least one ballast tank of the other columns (3).
(FR) L’invention concerne une plateforme flottante semi-submersible (1) destinée à soutenir au moins une éolienne, comprenant quatre colonnes flottantes (3), ces dernières étant fixées à un ponton annulaire (2) ; un organe de transition (4) conçu pour soutenir une éolienne, disposé sur les colonnes flottantes (3) ; et une plaque de pilonnement (5) assemblée au périmètre interne du ponton annulaire (2). Le ponton annulaire (2) comprend quatre parties ponton formant un ponton annulaire en forme de quadrilatère (2), la première extrémité de chaque colonne (3) étant fixée à un coin respectif dudit ponton annulaire en forme de quadrilatère (2). La plaque de pilonnement (5) est située dans le périmètre interne du ponton annulaire (2), définissant tous deux un creux. Le ponton (2) est de préférence divisé en une pluralité de compartiments ou de blocs de construction qui peut être remplie d'un ballast fixe, tel que du béton. L’organe de transition (4) comporte quatre bras disposés en étoile et faisant saillie à partir d'un point central au niveau duquel est située l'éolienne, la liaison entre l’organe de transition (4) et les colonnes (3) étant conçue pour être située au-dessus de la zone éclaboussée par les vagues. Chacune des colonnes flottantes (3) comprend au moins un réservoir de ballast conçu pour répartir l'eau de mer afin de régler le tirant d'eau et de compenser l'inclinaison de la plate-forme (1), ledit réservoir de ballast compris dans chaque colonne (3) étant indépendant dudit réservoir de ballast des autres colonnes (3).
