14:30 - 16:00 Turbine technology - Fixed to the seabed

Turbine technology  

Room: A10

Session description

This session is focused on the substructures for off shore wind turbines. Focus will be on how foundations will look for continuously larger turbines at increase water depth - some of their design drivers, and impact on cost reduction.

Presentations will reflect all relevant foundation types, ranging from steel to concrete, from fixed-bottom to floating - new development implemented and research conducted - what are the findings?

Learning Objectives
  1. How solid experience contributes to improving the future design basis
  2. The potential cost optimization for the future foundation solution
  3. Learn about newest developments, such as jacket structures with bucket foundations
  4. How to evaluate remaining lifetime of your assets

This session will be chaired by:
Jesper Mansson, Director, Technical Business Development, LM Wind Power, Denmark
