Feasibility study for offshore wind warm development in Gujarat
The study builds on previously published work, especially the Pre-Feasibility Study published in 2015, the Supply Chain, Port Infrastructure and Logistics Study from 2016, and the Grid Integration Study published in 2017.
Beginning with selecting the optimum location for the project within the already identified Zone A, the report then focuses on defining baseline metocean and geotechnical parameters. This process leads to optimising the design and outline project costing using DNV GL’s LCOE (levelised cost of energy) tool, ‘Turbine.Architect’. Two different project sizes (approx. 150 and 500 MW) are analysed with 4, 6 and 10 MW turbines, coming to a range of conclusions as to project cost and cost of energy in a range of configurations.
