Unfortunately, Vattenfall is no longer interested in including the i4Offshore demonstrator in any of their projects. Therefore, the i4Offshore project is now suspended until a new costumer will commit to the project. We hope to be back in the fall 2020 with this very important wind energy project.
Our newest infographics about the i4offshore project and the suction bucket are now available for download. Click on each infographic to learn more. The infographics are also available on our infographics site. New infographics will be continuously added.
Together with project partners from Salzgitter and Universal Foundation, Jesper Møller from Siemens Gamesa presented the i4Offshore project at the 3rd Meeting on H2020 Wind Energy projects in Brussels, 10 September 2019. The workshop started with the remarks about the policy context and the desired impact of the wind energy projects sponsored by the H2020 […]
i4Offshore will participate in the 3rd Meeting on H2020 Wind Energy projects in Brussels, 10 September 2019. The projects will report on their current results and will further explore possibilities for collaboration and synergies in the area of wind energy. The projects are expected to update the European Commission on the progress to their achievement […]

In this issue: VIDEO: EUDP frontrunner project: Industrialized suction buckets stood the test at sea Design process kicked off Meet the i4Offshore partners – Siemens Gamesa Renewable Energy Minister of Energy visits Aalborg University to learn about energy research Project Management update – First i4Offshore project meeting […]
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 […]
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 […]
On 22 March 2019, the Danish Minister of Energy, Utilities and Climate Lars Christian Lilleholt visited AAU in Aalborg to learn about AAU’s research in consumer data, sustainable aviation fuel and wind energy. 22 March 2019, AAU staff presented their solutions to current energy and climate challenges to the Danish Minister of Energy, Utilities and […]
A new EU-backed research project aims to lower the price of offshore wind. The project includes 15 partners and is lead by Siemens Gamesa and Danish Aalborg University. Siemens Gamesa and Danish Aalborg University will lead the new research project i4Offshore, which has been tasked with reducing the cost of offshore wind. The project has […]
Siemens Gamesa Renewable Energy and Aalborg University in Denmark announced a partnership last month to lead the new i4Offshore research and development project, which will focus on significantly reducing the cost of offshore wind power through demonstrating and testing new technologies. As announced on December 14, Siemens Gamesa and Aalborg University will lead the Integrated Implementation of […]
