Visit from MacGregor, DNV, and Seaway 7

A delegation of four people from MacGregor together with representatives from DNV and Seaway 7 visited Motion Lab at the University of Agder in Grimstad on the 7. of December 2023.

The DNV and Seaway 7 visit was related to the technical qualification (TQ) process for MacGregor’s pile gripper project. MacGregor developed a prototype to verify their simulation model, which was used to generate control parameters and test the developed control system.

The goal of the visit to Motion Lab was to show DNV and the client what has been done and why, and what kind of information resulted from the prototype testing that has been transferred to the main project. Further, to demonstrate that MacGregor’s pilegripper solution is within the limitations given by the client for the two different operational sequences that were tested during the visit.
