    The down-scaled 1:6 test model met the full scale extreme weather and sank during extreme storm “Berit”. This extreme wave height combined with a storm surge (high water level) caused water to enter into the tower through the inlet pipe for the power cable (the J-tube) causing the tower to fill with water. The J-tube […]
