The wind resources for ocean power generation are mostly distributed in sea areas with the distance of 5–50km from coastline, whose water depth are generally over 20m. To improve ocean power output and economic benefit of offshore wind farm, it is necessary to choose floating foundation for offshore wind turbine. According to the basic data of a 600kW wind turbine with a horizontal shaft, the tower, semi-submersible foundation and mooring system are designed in the 60-meter-deep sea area. Precise finite element models of the floating wind turbine system are established, including mooring lines, floating foundation, tower and wind turbine. Dynamic responses for the floating foundation of offshore wind turbine are investigated under wave load in frequency domain.
