Offshore wind

We have worked as active partners in the design and installation of foundations and infrastructure on numerous offshore wind projects around the world. We know how to enhance your understanding of the geological and geotechnical risks associated with each project and facilitate the decision-making process from initial concepts to detailed design. Our dedicated vessels, jack-up platforms and purpose-built equipment have supported the safe installation and cost-effective operation of facilities around the world.

We are the only company that can provide you with a complete life-of-project suite of services throughout the offshore wind development process.

We gather known information, and acquire, process and interpret new geological, geophysical and geotechnical data to assist in assessing the suitability of sites for wave or tidal devices. Our services include:

  • Initial desktop studies and site visits
  • Resource assessment through regional/local modelling
  • Characterization of metocean conditions to support project planning
  • Geophysical and hydrographic surveys to ascertain seabed bathymetry, morphology, classification, marine habitats and sub-seabed layers
  • Ground risk assessments and potential geohazard identification
  • Regional activities, such as fishing and shipping
  • Identify known man-made structures, potential obstructions and Unexploded Ordnance (UXO)
  • Environmental sampling, testing and impact assessments
  • A site-specific 'soil model', that integrates all known factors

We'll provide you with a complete geo-model to inform the planning, design and structural engineering phases of your projects. We help to optimise the integrity of structural foundations and cable solutions critical to wave and tidal facilities. Our services include:

  • Geophysical and geotechnical surveys to characterize and classify sub-seabed layers
  • Wave, current and water level measurement and modelling to support metocean criteria for operability assessment and engineering design
  • Construction survey models and detailed reports
  • GIS-based ground models
  • Foundation design evaluation and assessment
  • Cable route selection, design and installation methodology
  • Geotechnical engineering services

We are a recognised specialist in marine construction and installation, specialising in challenging environments. We deploy dedicated vessels, jack-up platforms, equipment and personnel to deliver:

  • Marine engineering construction support
  • Offshore foundation installation services
  • Foundation drilling and installation
  • Device installation and retrieval services
  • Jack-up support services
  • Satellite positioning services
  • Survey and inspection of cable burial depth
  • Subsea services using ROVs, tracked vehicles, ROTVs and divers
  • Metocean profiling software and consultancy
  • Meteorological monitoring
  • Environmental monitoring
  • Multi pile and monopile installation

Our extensive knowledge of the marine environment works together with our resources and technical expertise to:

  • Ensure substantial cost and safety benefits
  • Provide accurate, reliable data support the decision-making process
  • Remove uncertainty in the design, development and installation of facilities
  • Ensure the long-term, safe operational performance of facilities
  • Integrate services and solutions with a single point of responsibility
  • Add measurable value at each stage of your project
