5th annual future offshore foundations forum

Future Offshore Foundations Forum


The leading industry event on offshore foundation and supporting structure design, fabrication and installation is to return on 7 – 9 November, by popular demand.

Containing more case studies, more new industry research and more meaningful knowledge sharing than ever before , the 2016 programme promises to bring thought leaders up-to-date with experiences and R&D from around Europe and beyond.

Topics on the 2016 agenda include:

  • The latest techniques in design, fabrication and installation optimisation for CAPEX reduction 
  • Noise mitigation strategies and in-field piling experiences 
  • Foundation lifetime extension : results from trials on Belwind, Northwind and C-power wind farms 
  • Certification and innovation : what is the best process for gaining approval for a novel concept? 
  • An update on floating wind projects and the future development of designs

“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.
