The SUDOCO partnership is a dynamic and multidisciplinary group composed of experts with diverse backgrounds, each bringing unique skills and knowledge to project. At its core, the team is coordinated by Professor Jan-Willem van Wingerden (Delft University of Technology), who coordinates a group of experts from both academia and the private sector. The workgroup comprises individuals with diverse expertise, ranging from engineering and environmental issues to the intersection of science and society. This holistic approach aligns with the team’s commitment to create not just efficient but also environmentally and socially responsible wind energy solutions.

WILLOW, “Wholistic and Integrated Digital Tools for Extended Lifetime and Profitability of Offshore Wind Farms”, aims to achieve an integrated system that will provide a health aware curtailment strategy to the offshore wind farm operators. Physical models and data-driven models (AI/ML) will be used to assist decision-making and planning of wind turbine operation and maintenance (O&M) activities considering factors such as component degradation, the particular complexity of grid integration, or specific offshore issues like corrosion or the additional loads from waves, tides and currents.

The ICONIC consortium aims to develop innovative digital and physical tools to achieve fundamental breakthroughs for the integrated control of wind farms, considering the whole physical system at farm, turbine, and component levels, in particular the complex aerodynamic interactions among turbines. The proposed integrated control solutions will be demonstrated by an extensive validation study via high-fidelity simulation models, experiments at a national-level wind tunnel, historical operational data, and real-world wind farm field tests.
