The selection of foundation design and installation methods is a key decision in the development of offshore projects. They are a significant part of the capital cost, have to be optimised for each location and their integrity assured over the life of the development.
Combining our knowledge of hydrodynamic and aerodynamic forces, structural design analysis and material properties in the marine environment BMT can assess and monitor the design integrity of both fixed and floating offshore structures.
These services are provided by our specialist operating company in Canada.
BMT is part of the GBF consortium that has developed an innovative cost effective concrete gravity foundation and a unique installation methodology that uses a bespoke Transport and Installation Barge (TIB) to transport and install a completed wind turbine generator in a single offshore operation in a wider operational envelop saving cost and time.
The development of the GBF foundation system is being supported by the Carbon Trust as part of its Offshore Wind Accelerator programme.
These services are provided by our specialist operating company in the UK.
