SLPE and Fugro Presenting at FoundationEx 2019 in Bristol, UK

A round table discussion on state-of-the-art structural and geotechnical modelling and analysis for XXL monopiles on offshore wind farm projects.

SLPE will be participating in Foundation Ex, a conference that will explore the latest technical innovation in offshore wind foundations. Foundation Ex will follow the life-cycle of an offshore windfarm foundations project and I’m excited to be sharing my knowledge around advanced structural and geotechnical analysis of XXL monopiles. October 1st, MShed, Bristol

SLPE’s General Manager (Joe Hilton) will be presenting a case study of a recent offshore wind foundation design project with Fugro’s Scott Whyte. This case study presents detailed structural design using a combination of time domain and spectral dynamic analysis techniques considering recommendations from the Pile Soil Analysis (PISA) joint industry project (Byrne et al., 2017) to develop site-specific soil reaction curves. Using bespoke models, the class-leading team of Fugro and SLPE reduce costs and schedules when compared with more standard codified approaches, significantly reducing the foundation-related project risks.
