Video: Industrializing a game changer
Universal Foundation launched the 74-ton modular structure in a recent offshore campaign. It’s the result of a cost-out and commercialization initiative that introduces simplified fabrication and assembly methods. Coil steel and bolted connections replace heavier plate steel and time-consuming welding – significant steps in reducing costs and CO2 emissions. Watch video off the project (courtesy […]
Testing of the suction bucket foundation
An innovation project between Siemens Gamesa, Universal Foundation, Aalborg University and Fred. Olsen Windcarrier has tested an almost full-scale model of a suction bucket foundation for offshore wind turbines. The results from the project are used to adjust the suction buckets in the full-scale offshore wind turbines in the i4Offshore project. To read more head […]
