Wind and wave regimes for the design of an offshore wind farm

Updated: Jun 29, 2023

Groix & Belle-Ile (FRANCE)


Client : ARTELIA

Date of completion : 2014 - 2016

Globocean has performed an assessment of the wind and wave statistical conditions between the islands of Groix and Belle-Ile (Brittany) for the design of a floating wind farm.

The following missions have been successfully performed by Globocean :

  • Numerical simulation of the offshore swell (WaveWatchIII software)

  • Wave propagation within the wind farm area (SWAN software)

  • Validation of the wave modelling thanks to buoy in-situ measurements (local survey)

  • Extreme statistical processing of the sea-states (uni-variate extreme analysis by EVA process and bi-variate by KDE contour plots)

  • 1D and 2D spectral characterization
