The Technology

Increased Mooring Load Capacity

The new foundation, anchoring and mooring offshore wind technology is currently being patented, developed and qualified. The case studies done to date indicate a significant increase in sustained and short term load capacity when compared to standard suction anchors, suction buckets for jacket structures, clump weight foundations, piles and monopiles.

The technical benefits from the new offshore wind innovations are:

New offshore wind technology - suction anchor

Significant Cost Reduction

The new innovative foundation, anchoring and mooring offshore wind technology is made to allow for large scale and standardisation which is key to cost reduction.

Offshore Wind Technology - Offshore Wind Design

The case studies done to date indicate a significant cost reduction both for individual foundations and anchors and for a given sustained or short term holding capacity when compared to standard monopiles, suction buckets for jackets or suction anchors used as mooring for floating wind turbines. Some of the commercial benefits:

“By increasing the load capacity and reducing the required amount of steel produced for offshore wind projects, the technologies from Offshore Wind Design could save the globe from thousands of tonnes of CO2 emission every year from 2030 to 2040”
