Installation and Operation

Installation

  • Foundations are self-buoyant for ease of deployment to the wind farm location
  • Standard tugs that are readily available and abundant are used to install the foundations
  • Sea-borne noise and vibration is minimised so installation can progress year-round
  • Reduced weather dependency significantly extends the installation season giving security of programme
  • Installation will be achieved by lowering through the controlled influx of water, followed by sand/aggregate ballasting

Operation

  • Concrete has low maintenance requirements being inherently durable in the marine environment
  • Scour protection will be designed for minimum maintenance over the design life of the wind farm
  • The durability of the foundations could allow developers to re-deploy them in different locations with new turbines fitted
  • Our foundations can be completely removed for recycling at the end of their useful life
