Offshore Wind

Harness the Power of Offshore Wind Energy

Enhance foundation design for Wind Farms through the examination of seabed conditions

Globally, investments in wind energy technology are increasing as are the number of countries investing in offshore wind projects. One crucial factor influencing the progress of wind farm development is site selection which is dependent upon seabed conditions and surface rocks. Site characterization is vital for the establishment and stability of wind farms, especially in foundation design for turbines.

Structural seabed integrity is important to sustain wind turbines. The seabed must possess ample bearing capacity to prevent excessive settlement or tilting. The stability of wind turbines relies on the foundation's ability to support both the weight and dynamic loads imposed by the turbine.

A comprehensive site assessment of soil conditions is essential to identify geological features, near surface hazards, soil composition, and moisture content, addressing unique challenges specific to each site. In addition, cost efficiency is directly tied to seabed conditions to optimize foundation design and construction, directly impacting project costs. An in-depth analysis mitigates potential risks and ensures the safety and reliability of the entire wind farm infrastructure.
