The unnamed wind farm is located 30 to 55 kilometres offshore, in water depths between 30 and 60 metres below LAT.

The preliminary design of the WTG foundation comprised a concept design followed by preliminary design of the Suction Pile Jacket (SPJ).

It also included a preliminary design of suction pile foundations, geotechnical and structural; preliminary design drawings; and interface with the client.

The seabed at the site consists of strong clays over bedrock and is ideally suited for suction pile founded jackets, SPT Offshore said.
