With visionary aspiration and dedication to improving offshore wind energy development, Northland Power set out to enable a test of a new foundation structure in the Deutsche Bucht Offshore Wind Farm. Their test of choice – two Mono Bucket foundations from Universal Foundation. In 2016, the Mono Bucket was designated as “above state-of-the-art technology” by German authorities.
That vision is nearly implemented, and Universal Foundation announces Step 1 in changing the game with offshore wind foundations. With Van Oord now having completed mobilization, the installation vessel and crew are headed to Deutsche Bucht.
For Universal Foundation, this true offshore site is the perfect showcase for the Mono Bucket, as it marks the end of de-risking and the beginning of full-force commercialization.
The Industrialized Suction Bucket joins its big brother, the Mono Bucket, as another solution to help partners win their offshore wind development bids.
