Primary Structures

WT's approach to primary structure design is second to none. Our industry leading approach to monopile design is equalled by our extensive expertise in jackets and our key role in developing floating foundations.

Secondary Structures

Innovation isn't just key to efficiency for foundations, it also drives cost savings and increased health and safety for secondary offshore structures.

Geotech Eng & Design

WT’s Geotechnical interpretation and state-of-the-art soil structure interaction techniques assures highly optimised foundation designs.

Project Delivery

Offshore wind projects are highly complex, which is why WT’s Project Delivery division brings together project directors with decades of experience to ensure the highest level of project governance and performance for our clients.


Our team of geophysical specialists form a market leading centre of technical excellence for the scoping, tendering, management and evaluation of all the geophysical surveys required for the development of your offshore wind farm.

Transport & Installation

Wood Thilsted's combination of integrated in-house expertise, combined with global and local experience, means no design is ever presented to a client that can't be effectively and efficiently installed.

Climate Analytics & Loads

The Climate Analytics and Loads department brings together wind and metocean expertise in a unique way. Our energy specialists come from world leading dedicated wind consultancies, for both onshore and offshore environments, and work hand in hand with our experts, from well-established metocean analysis outfits.

Survey Management

Every site is different and from the outset our team establishes a clear site development strategy that manages time and cost.
