HarshLab floating offshore platform robust enough to withstand storm Epsilon

2020.11.05

Floating Materials and Component Lab Battered by Eight-Metre Waves

Plataforma flotante offshore HarshLab

A webcam installed recently by CoreMarine on HarshLab, the advanced floating platform-laboratory for the evaluation of materials, components and equipment in a real offshore environment, provided vivid testimony of the effects of Storm Epsilon.

The floating lab, moored off the Biscay Marine Energy Platform (BiMEP), some three kilometres from the coast, withstood extreme weather conditions, with eight-metre waves and winds of up to 20 knots.

Both the mooring lines and the infrastructure itself stood up well to the storm, and all tests in progress were able to proceed as planned.

This is the third consecutive winter for HarshLab since it was installed in September 2018. We are confident that after Storm Epsilon, the lab will continue to operate at full capacity.

Acknowledgements

We would like to take this occasion to congratulate the designers of HarshLab and thank all who have entrusted us with their testing requirements.
