Current trends show that the offshore wind industry is evolving into deeper waters, with larger turbines and consequently larger foundations. In Europe 80% of the wind turbines are installed on monopile foundations and this is expected to be the dominant choice in the future. The shallow geology of most of the wind farms is characterized as sand...

The number of wind farms that are commissioned, being installed, or prepared is still increasing due to a growing demand for green energy. To benefit from the higher wind velocities, which can be found at sea, and to prevent the pollution of the horizon, wind farms are being built offshore and installed in an ever increasing water depth. The...

Anthropogenic noise emission in the marine environment is a key issue nowadays and has drawn the attention of regulatory bodies in various nations. In particular, the noise generated during the installation of foundation piles for the offshore wind industry is considered to be harmful for aquatic species. A reliable prediction of the underwater...
