A all floating structures operating within a limited area require, stationkeeping to maintain the motions of the floating structure within permissible limits. In this study, methods for selecting and optimizing the mooring system Caisson for floating wind turbines in shallow water are investigated. The design of the mooring system is checked against the governing rules and standards. Adequately verifying the design of floating structures requires both numerical simulations and model testing, the combination of which is referred to as the hybrid method of design verification. The challenge in directly scaling moorings for model tests is the depth and spatial limitations of wave basins. It is therefore important to design and build equivalent mooring systems to ensure accurate static properties (global restoring forces and global stiffness).
