KRISO-KISTI-KIER Sign MOU for Digital Twin Platform Development

Leading development of virtual testing and demonstration concepts through construction of a digital twin platform for floating ocean wind power


Korea Research Institute of Ships and Ocean engineering (President Booki Kim, hereinafter KRISO) has signed an MOU with the Korea Institute of Science and Technology Information (President Jae-soo, Kim, hereinafter KISTI) and Korea Institute of Energy Research (President Jong-nam Kim, hereinafter KIER) for the development of a digital twin platform for the virtual testing and demonstration of floating ocean wind power concepts on the 12th at the KISTI International Conference Room.


The three institutions agreed to establish an active partnership for the preemptive development of a digital twin platform for floating ocean wind power and virtually demonstrated concepts utilizing the digital twin technology to achieve the early commercialization of floating ocean wind power, a technology of great potential value.


Digital twin technology involves the reproduction of real objects as virtual models in a digital environment, to simulate situations that could occur in the real world, using the results to analyze and predict a wide range of situations.


This is the first attempt to apply digital twin-based virtual testing and demonstration in the field of ocean wind power. The project will utilize the computing capabilities of KISTI’s national supercomputer no. 5, Nurion, to analyze the highly precise simulation models, putting designs through trial and error at the demonstration phase and testing stability in poor weather conditions in a digital environment.


The three institutions will jointly: develop a digital twin platform for floating ocean wave power simulations and virtual demonstration, support an optimized environment for supercomputing-based simulation and digital twin operation, and utilize key research infrastructure between the institutions and pursue technology commercialization for this R&D project.


As Korea’s leading research institute for ships and ocean engineering, KRISO has demonstrated technological leadership in floating body and mooring system dynamics, and in structure and fatigue analyses. Notably, it has successfully developed advanced wave power systems technology using a digital twin constructed based on operational data from the wave energy open sea test bed in Jeju. KISTI has expertise in data, networks, artificial intelligence and digital twin technology as the nation’s highest authority in science and technology information. KIER is a specialized research institution in the field of energy, with technological capabilities in fault diagnosis as well as blade and power transmission analyses of wind turbines based on real world operational data.


With this MOU, the three institutions will construct a system for cooperation that will not only be utilized in the development of a digital twin platform for floating ocean wave power, but also preemptively implement virtually tested and demonstrated concepts to the field of wind energy research, which would be able to partially replace time-consuming and costly demonstrations. Synergy between the strengths of the three institutions would contribute to the early commercialization of a digital twin platform in the field of floating ocean wind power.


KRISO President Dr. Booki Kim promised that “KRISO will actively utilize know-how in digital twin construction accumulated through wave energy system research to contribute to the construction and early commercialization of the digital twin platform for floating ocean wind power.”
