Key topics of this year's agenda are  :

    • The Pile Soil Analysis (PISA) project – implementing a new design methodology for monopile structures, for bigger offshore wind turbines

    • Results of seabed analysis of the north-east US seabed and impact on foundation structure choices

    • Design and installation considerations for project using largest turbines commercially available
    • Bigger turbines, further distances and deeper waters : how do monopiles, jackets and floating structures stack up against each other?

    • Identifying infrastructure and logistics challenges in developing, constructing and maintaining 500MW floating offshore wind farms

    • Preparing for fabrication of XL monopiles , for 12MW turbines
    • Quiet installation of monopiles and other cost reduction advantages of Blue Hammer

    • Hands-on developer’s O&M strategies for offshore wind farms

    • Tackling corrosion issues inside monopiles

“If you can only attend one foundation event per year - make it this one. Different topics by recurrent speakers provide you with the whole picture and highlight the continuous progress achieved.”

This is the ONLY event available to the industry delving specifically into the design, fabrication and installation of foundation concepts for improved cost of energy reductions and extended lifetime of offshore wind structures.

Last year’s forum attracted over 100 of the industry’s leading professionals.  Click here to view a full list of attending companies.
