Bucket foundation may cut wind turbine costs

Suction piles have anchored offshore oil and gas production for years, but a new type – called a bucket foundation – is being promoted for offshore wind turbines in an effort to reduce costs. In February, Forewind, a consortium planning...

Lack of foundation test sites ‘a risk for UK offshore wind’

The Carbon Trust has warned that innovations to reduce offshore wind costs are at risk as Britain has nowhere to demonstrate new, lower-cost foundations with more powerful offshore wind turbines. Carbon Trust believes that without an urgent solution many cost...

Brug bøtten og spar kassen – ny opfindelse skal sænke prisen på havmøller

En professor fra Aalborg Universitet og en Aalborg virksomhed står bag en revolutionerende opfindelse, der skal spare de store omkostninger til havmøllers fundament. Opfindelsen, et såkaldt bøttefundament, vil kunne give vindmølleindustrien milliardbesparelser, skabe nye danske arbejdspladser og samtidig skåne miljøet...

Load-out marks first stage of development at Dogger Bank

Innovative suction-installed wind turbine foundations on their way to Dogger Bank site, for first stage of construction at the world’s largest offshore wind farm, 125 kilometres off the UK’s east coast. The innovative suction-installed foundations that represent the first stage...

‘Suction bucket’ lays new foundation for offshore wind

Engineering solution is hoped to bring down costs and provide a basis for ambitious offshore plans. Taken from a Guardian environment article. A gigantic steel bucket will be lowered upside-down through the deep, murky waters of the North Sea within...
