Marine plants or macroalgae are valuable resources for various biomaterial applications. The study involves industrial design and simulation of the mooring system station keeping of an offshore aquaculture system for large scale cultivation of macro algae in the open sea. The study would help to determine a suitable mooring system arrangement for the system. The result of the study would allow increased production of seaweed at less cost. The industrial design involves system engineering and integration of the subsystem design to size the mooring system components that would be deployed at a specific site with its metocean environment. The simulation study involves determination of the behavior of the pontoon-type VLFS (Very Large Floating Structure), when under influence of external forces caused by the ocean environment (current, wave, wind). Bureau VeritasAriane 7 simulation software is used to assess the multibody mooring design, strength and fatigue in the offshore environment and facilitate material selection required to efficiently deploy and maintain the system.
