How do you make sure the system does not break?
The design of System 002 was informed by data collected during our System 001 and 001/B campaigns as well as during our tests in the North Sea. A simple design with minimal components and high flexibility, System 002 was designed with minimizing breaking possibilities in mind.
We will continually monitor the loads in the system and adapt the speed and span to lower the loads in the case of rough seas. We will also monitor weather forecasts and plan a trajectory to avoid storms, and by understanding the patch climate, we can plan to operate in less critical locations. In the case of a particularly severe storm, the system can be temporarily withdrawn from the operation.
