Foundation Design

  • Reinforced concrete, non-piled, ballasted gravity structure
  • Caters for water depths up to 60m
  • Suits larger turbine sizes up to an anticipated 8MW
  • The design minimises the need for seabed preparation by accommodating existing seabed slopes and surface sediments
  • The design incorporates skirt variants to suit seabed soil conditions
  • Designs can be standardised across individual or multiple sites to enable cost optimisation
  • Collar design for the turbine mast connection can accommodate ~2° vertical alignment tolerance
  • Offers life cycle carbon footprint benefits through material selection
  • Unlike many alternatives, the design offers the potential to repower without foundation replacement
