Microsoft’s Artificial Intelligence will support a Floating Offshore Wind Project

MICROSOFT has just announced that the MARIA project, “Monitoring floAting platfoRms in offshore wind through artificIAl intelligence” has been chosen as one of the recipient of its “AI for Earth” scholarship program: (https://www.microsoft.com/en-us/ai/ai-for-earth).

The Project is being run by Prof. Jesús María Blanco, from the University of the Basque Country at the School of Engineering of Bilbao and is part of the doctoral thesis by Mr. Lander Galera that Prof. Blanco is co-supervising with Prof. Iglesias, from the University College Cork of Ireland. Mr. Galera is working on the thesis of quantifying the power losses of floating marine wind turbines as a consequence of the continuous and variable oscillations, due to their condition of floating platforms, which greatly affect the overall performance of the turbine (when operating at sub-optimal angles with respect to the incident wind) and that, ultimately, reduce the output power of the system, increasing its LCOE (Levelized Cost Of Energy). This Project is under the JRL-ORE strategy:
