100% of delegates said that All or Most of their expectations were met!

Here's what they had to say:

"I gained an increased awareness of offshore issues that may arise. The general discussions and the opportunity to meet and connect with other offshore engineers were benefits that I hadn’t even anticipated. The course notes were excellent."

"I gained valuable insights into semi-submersible design principles and considerations as well as probability and reliability engineering."

"Networking with colleagues from across the industry was an additional benefit I had not anticipated."

"I found the summary and overview of mooring systems particularly relevant to my work"

About the Course

The costs of offshore wind are currently, significantly higher than onshore wind. A significant contributor to this higher cost is the cost of the foundations for the turbines. Hence a rational and optimized design of foundation for wind turbines is essential to reduce the overall cost.

This course gives a detailed knowledge about the design and analysis of mono pile, Suction piles, and jacket structure foundations. This course also includes the soil pile interaction and the dynamic responses.

The course will include both ultimate and fatigue limit state check for the design of these types of foundations. The uncertainties of various design variables will also be discussed in these lectures. Lastly a reliability based design of suction pile will be covered.

Who should attend?

Engineers and researchers involved in the design of offshore wind farm foundation, Contracts engineers, Wind turbine Installation companies, Team leaders, Conversion Engineers, Project engineers and managers, offshore controls engineers, Safety inspectors will benefits from attending this course. The course is innovative in both content & structure with a careful balance of theory & practice.
