Developing a large offshore wind project is a complex undertaking. A large number of interfacing issues need to be resolved at all stages of the development process; from the initial idea to the time when the turbines are installed and in operation. Ramboll has the knowledge and the experience required to identify and to manage the risks and the uncertainties in a systematic manner, based on constantly updated evaluations of the costs and the benefits. We offer a full range of services from planning and project development to design, implementation and follow up on operation, maintenance, and finally to decommissioning.
Innovation - reduction of LCoE
Ramboll has the knowledge and experience to be a key contributor to advanced research and development activities within energy, structural and offshore engineering. Read more about innovation and reduction of LCoE.
Wind energy planning
Large-scale and cost-effective use of wind energy requires integration of wind energy into the mix of energy sources and into the power grid. Ramboll establishes and reviews local, national and regional energy resource planning and incorporates wind energy into the planning schemes. We investigate the possibilities of combining wind energy with other energy sources with regard to carbon emissions, economy, security of supply and the electrical infrastructure.
Offshore project development
Once an offshore wind farm is considered or has been decided upon, we provide support and advice as the owner's engineer throughout the development process on relevant technical, environmental, timing and financial matters. Read more about project development.
Offshore site investigations
Based on factors such as the choice of turbine and site conditions, Ramboll carries out all the necessary analyses to select the foundation type best suited for your offshore wind farm project. Read more about site investigations.
Offshore structural design
Ramboll is the world leader within design of offshore foundations for wind turbines, having performed designs for more than 40 offshore wind farms. More than 65% of the world’s offshore wind turbines rise from foundations designed by Ramboll. Read more about structural design of foundations for offshore wind turbines.
Offshore substation design
Ramboll has vast experience within design of complete substations including structures, topsides, facilities, helipads, electrical and mechanical equipment and safety issues. Read more about our offshore substation design services.
After the design and installation phases, Ramboll provides asset management assistance based on our in-depth knowledge of the design of the structures. Read more about out asset management services.
In order to register and document all identified hazards, risk mitigation measures and recommendations for further control methods in an effective and sufficient way, Ramboll has developed the DRA tool “Soter” for the execution of Design Risk Assessments.
