Offshore Wind Design AS can deliver suction bucket foundations to offshore wind projects for the bottom fixed offshore wind industry.
Using the experience and engineering skills from the subsea oil and gas industry, we and our partners can provide design support only or a complete EPC project.
This include manufacturing, testing and delivery for the suction bucket foundations that can be easily integrated into the offshore wind jacket foundations at any site worldwide.
The offshore wind foundations, anchors and mooring are a substantial cost element of the offshore wind farm CAPEX. Due to complex and uncertain soil and seabed conditions and often conservative geotechnical design parameters, the suction assisted foundations, such as suction anchors and buckets are normally overdesigned. For an offshore wind farm with hundreds of foundation structures, this is not sustainable. Offshore Wind Design AS has invented technology, methods and solutions that can safely reduce the dimensions, weight and required suction and hence significantly reduce cost for offshore wind farms.
