 In recent years, with more and more offshore wind farms being constructed, the possibility of integrating other marine renewables with offshore wind has arisen. This integration presents a number of advantages, including a better utilisation of the marine space and lower installation costs relative to separate installations.
The main objective of this work is to analyse the integration of different WEC technologies into offshore windmills. More specifically, three technologies were considered: oscillating water column, oscillating body, and overtopping devices; of which three prototypes were designed to a preliminary level. Particular attention was paid to the windmill foundations and how they are affected by the installation of the WEC.
