Seamade – Update

The OSS support structures for the SeaMade project in Belgium have been installed at the two project sites: the Mermaid OWF and the Seastar OWF. Following the successful pull-in of the subsea cables and installation of the topsides structures, the two substations will soon be exporting energy from the wind farms.

The design of the monopile and transition piece support structures was performed by Sea & Land Project Engineering using an advanced hydrodynamic analysis software package developed in-house, coupled with industry leading finite element analysis software for offshore structure design.
