    Knowledge of impact forces is an important aspect in the design and subsequent operation of offshore wind turbines. Offshore wind turbines are typically monopile or space frame structures. In addition to their basic operational loading, these structures are designed to withstand the environmental loads experienced offshore from waves, currents and wind.

    By: Jason Deign, for New Energy Update The US offshore wind sector ended 2017 on a slightly ironic note. Plans for Cape Wind, which was supposed to have been the country’s first offshore wind farm, were finally shuttered after a long period of uncertainty.[1] But prospects for the rest of the market looked better than […]

    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 […]

    Offshore renewable energy is evolving rapidly, with offshore wind being one of the pioneer sectors. Energy generated from offshore wind farms needs an efficient transmission system of subsea power cables to connect to the onshore network. Energy transmission networks can form the most expensive components of offshore wind farms. Setting aside the actual manufacturing and installation costs, the potential costs related to a […]

    In recent years, the shale gas revolution has contributed to the United States surpassing Russia and Saudi Arabia in oil production. The surge in oil production worldwide and Saudi Arabia’s strategic decision not to reduce its oil production led to declining oil prices. These lower prices have a contagious effect on the electricity prices, which […]
