Wind energy

Planning and constructing offshore and onshore wind farms is a complex task. It requires technical excellence and a multi-disciplinary approach.

Offshore Wind Turbines:

Resilient Foundations

A good example of a resilient offshore foundation, Ramboll designed the suction bucket jacket with three cups that are slipped into the seabed through suction. It is installed in a single lifting and assembly process, which reduces noise and construction time as well as the associated costs.
