The two unnamed wind farms are located approximately 10 to 30 miles from shore, in water depths of between 15 and 30 metres.

SPT Offshore is requested to prepare a conceptual design for each of the projects applying SPT’s Suction Pile Jacket foundations.

The soil consists of soft clays and is well suited for Suction Pile Jacket foundations, SPT Offshore said.
