Projects - Offshore wind power

Ongoing projects: 

NORCOWE (2009–2017)
UiS is a research partner in the Norwegian Center for Offshore Wind Energy, which is a centre for sustainable energy (FME) funded by the Research Council of Norway. NORCOWE will be concluded in March 2017

De-Risk (2015–2019)
UiS is a research partner in DeRisk, which aims to develop new methods for design with a reduced risk of extreme wave loads. The project is funded by Innovation Fund in Denmark.
