DISSEMINATION: CONFIDENTIAL

SCHEDULED: AUG/2013

ACHIEVED: AUG/2013

This document is intended to pave the way for the activities to be performed in WP10, dealing wit“Technology integration into platform design”. Its aim is to collect the design parameters and define the design problem for an H2Ocean platform, in order that a conceptual design and layout design exercise can be carried out in Task 10.3. The main result of this document is to highlight the design requirements, specific for Portuguese offshore site. The document focuses on the functional requirements of units and their reciprocal interactions, preparing for the design activities of Task 10.2 and Task 10.3. i.e. “Process module Conceptual Design” and “Conceptual design of Technology Integration”.

NATURE: REPORT

DISSEMINATION: CONFIDENTIAL

SCHEDULED: JAN/2013

ACHIEVED: In progress

This deliverable outlines the H2Ocean stakeholder requirements in order to define the H2Ocean system and highlight the requirements for site selection. Design constraints and system boundaries and interfaces are identified. The primary aim of this report is to describe activities of task 10.2. They are divided in two subtasks: 1) Collection of data regarding Process modules, 2) User Requirements Specification definition, specific for the selected site, i.e. Portugal, as stated in MS23 “Production of User requirement Specifications”

ACHIEVED: FEB/2015

This deliverable presents the Conceptual Design of the sea installation of the H2OCEAN Project, it is a good basis for discussion for next engineering step, i.e. Basic Engineering. Main result of this deliverable is to show how requirements have been transformed into a coherent and consistent set of documents describing an ”open ocean” installation. The installation is huge and involves a great number of vessels and the investment cost for such an installation can reach 8 billion euro. In order to build the whole installation many years can be necessary and a number of yard ships to build 95 WEC and 4 Floating Process units, 2 gas storage ships and 3 carries needs to be involved. Currently the realisation of this sea deployment seems not imminent, many parts have a low TRL (technology readiness level) and some systems have never been assembled in such configuration. The sea deployment cannot be unmanned due to maintenance and security reasons. Regarding aquaculture, we shall consider the enormous quantity of sea feed consumed and the useless coupling of multi trophic aquaculture or the use of dissolved oxygen. One single WEC, coupled with aquaculture can satisfy energy needs of an array of cages. A new process layout for the electrolyser ship and a modification of the electrolysis process and oxygen collection has been proposed. The sea deployment could have a “dual use”.

NATURE: REPORT

DISSEMINATION: CONFIDENTIAL

SCHEDULED: DEC/2014

ACHIEVED: In progress

This document covers the economic assessment of an H2Ocean installation off the coast of Portugal. The ISL economic model and D9.8 Report on Economic Viability document report there is a 19 Billion Euro Loss over the lifetime of the project. ITP have interrogated the data to see how this can be reduced by looking at two modified options of the project. In overall conclusion, even with best efforts made to reduce costs the project still does not break even after 25 years, due to the low revenue and the high CAPEX and OPEX over the tenure of the project.

Option 1 of the model prepared for this report, which amended some quantitative errors in the ISL model, still shows a loss for the H2Ocean project of 12 Billion Euros over the 25 year length of the project.

Option 2 investigates the co-location of wind and wave energy with aquaculture and the floating anaerobic digester. It leads to greater revenue (€3.3Bn compared to €1.98Bn), and significantly lower capital and operating costs. Option 2 gets closer to breaking even in year 25 of the project, but still runs at a loss of €438m.

ACHIEVED: DEC/2014

This document shows the results from a risk analysis for an H2Ocean installation off the coast of Portugal. This work has been based on the results from D2.1 “Risk and contingency plan”, D6.2 “Report identifying risk analysis requirements for integration of packages into service module” and D8.4 “Conceptual maintenance manual”. These previous items of work served as a basis for the input to the present deliverable “Project Risk Register”. The technology readiness level has also been reviewed to see how novelty will impact the risk of the H2Ocean concept. There have been several risks identified through this process, which have then gone through mitigation and acceptance process, to reduce the overall risk to the project. Many of the most sever risks are to Health and Safety, and Project and Technical categories, due to the novelty of the H2Ocean concept and the low TRL levels of the technologies to be integrated.
