The Feasibility phase is where initial engineering work is performed. The boundary conditions (e.g. wind, wave, geology, etc.) of the project site are investigated and critically reviewed. This identifies risks and hazards that may be potential threats to the project.
At this point we begin to work with the broader team to get into the project detail. This means looking at and reducing project risks by looking at site, soil, seismic data and more, optimising wind farm layouts, considering foundation design options, installation concerns as well as identifying opportunities for innovation and general improvement.
We are very proud to have designed some of the most cost-effective foundation designs for many of the largest offshore wind projects in the world. This is achieved through our holistic in-house approach to design, which means we have all the information available whenever we need it, delivering a more efficient process. Having all these inputs at our fingertips to fully understand the design and supply chain constraints results in efficient structural design and project cost savings.
For the Installation phase Wood Thilsted offers you everything you need to ensure the successful execution of a project. Our team has worked on the installation of dozens of projects and has the right tools, knowledge, technology and understanding of partnership working to make sure fabrication, transport and installation run smoothly.
Simply put, under the right conditions we can make your wind farms operate for longer. The combination of our cutting edge digital twin technology, decades of offshore engineering experience, surveying expertise and integrated team working means we can monitor and accurately assess the structural integrity and efficiency of every turbine and foundation in your wind farm. The result? We could add years of operation to your wind farm.
