Construction / Fabrication

  • The concrete foundations are configured for rapid construction using readily available construction skills
  • Construction is an onshore activity and tailored for ease of subsequent installation
  • Construction does not require deep water (10m draft)
  • Construction can be sited at ports well placed to suit wind farm locations, with discussions ongoing with selected ports
  • Concrete costs are less dependent on commodities with high price volatility, such as steel
  • Concrete gravity foundations do not use large scale steel tubulars, therefore they will increase the market’s capacity to deliver turbine foundations, release supply chain constraints and increase competition
  • A dedicated mass construction facility will deliver productivity benefits and reduce costs
  • Health and safety considerations will be integral to the development of the new construction facilities and foundations constructed in them, using well proven safe construction expertise
