Universal Foundation Industrial PhD Fellow and Project Engineer, Ionut Emanuel Stroescu received an award last week during EWEA Offshore 2015 in Copenhagen, for a poster entered into the science and research category.

The awarded poster titled ’Scour Behaviours of Bucket Foundations’ displayed results from surveys carried around the installed Mono Buckets in Horns Rev II and Dogger Bank in North Sea.
Mr. Stroescu studies the scour development around Mono Buckets as part of the Industrial PhD program that he is enrolled in at Aalborg University. The research programme is carried out under the supervision of Peter Frigaard from Aalborg University and Morten Fejerskov and Søren Andreas Nielsen from Universal Foundation A/S.

The objective of the research is to study the scour development phenomenon around Mono Buckets, to assess the suitable environmental ranges to which no scour protection is required and assess the risk of designs with no scour protection.

‘I am proud of this accolade and honoured that the poster was so well received by the judges. I look forward to continuing my work in this field, contributing to the body of knowledge regarding scour behaviour and suction buckets’ said Mr. Stroescu.
