About the event

Open course brochure to see the programme and Lecturer's CV

The costs of offshore wind are currently significantly higher than onshore wind. A significant contributor to this higher cost is the cost of the foundations for the turbines. Hence a rational optimized design of foundation for wind turbines is essential to reduce the overall cost.

This course gives a detailed knowledge about the design and analysis of monopile and jacket structure foundations. This course also includes the soil pile interaction and the dynamic responses.

This course provides a general overview of the aero-servo hydro elastic software OpenFAST and the different engineering models behind the code in order to represent the coupled dynamics of offshore wind systems.

Who should attend 

Engineers and researchers involved in the design of offshore and wind farm foundation, contract engineers, wind turbine installation companies, team leaders, conversion engineers, project engineers and managers, offshore controls engineers and safety inspectors will benefit from attending the course. The course is innovative in both content & structure with a careful balance of theory and practice.
