    The bulk of the current plans for European offshore wind power are intended for construction in the relatively shallow North Sea. However, many European countries, including Portugal, do not border shallow seas. Their sea beds have steep descending slopes and much greater water depths not suited for current techniques. If a viable technique can be […]

    An important tool for reducing risks and costs in offshore wind is integrated, intelligent monitoring of the foundation structures. If well implemented an integrated monitoring approach will continuously track the ‘state of health’ of a foundation and identify in a very early stage the onset of structural problems. This allows early, low cost repairs, optimal […]
