The European offshore wind industry has experienced significant growth in the past decade, mainly focusing on shallow areas in the North Sea to reduce the Levelised Cost of Electricity (LCoE) and compete with fossil fuels. However, as shallow areas become scarcer and the industry seeks greater independence from government subsidies, a shift...

The offshore wind industry is increasingly constructing wind turbines farther from the coast, in deeper water, and under more extreme conditions. This requires larger (monopile) foundations and necessitates new installation methods. An important factor affecting workability is the dynamic behavior of the monopile during installation. <br/>The...

An important trend exhibited by the offshore wind market is the increase in the size of wind turbines, leading to longer and stiffer monopiles with larger diameter-to-thickness ratios. Current transport analysis is focused on loads resulting from hydrodynamic accelerations, without taking loads into account resulting from differences in bending...

The potential for developing more efficient offshore wind support structures becomes increasingly critical as the offshore wind sector is faced with challenges such as rising commodity prices and shrinking profit margins. These challenges not only impact the industry’s capacity to meet growing global demand but also hinder efforts to address the...

Large-diameter monopiles serve as foundations for offshore wind turbines (OWT), and the diameters are now up to 10 meters. These monopiles exhibit lower embedded length-to-diameter (L/D) ratios compared to the conventional monopile that is widely employed in offshore oil and gas platforms. They undergo rotation when subjected to lateral loading...

This study examines the effect of adding helical piles to the foundation mechanism of monopile installation templates. A monopile installation template is a gravity-based structure, which is placed on the seabed. The installation template is utilised for the installation of monopiles, and to ensure its verticality during this installation. At...

Offshore wind energy's rapid expansion underscores the need for accurate and efficient methods to analyze the behavior of monopile foundations supporting wind turbines. While three-dimensional (3D) analyses provide comprehensive insights, their computational demands are significant. As an alternative, one-dimensional (1D) models with spring...

Ever since the commissioning of the first offshore wind farm in October 1991, the offshore wind market has experienced exponential growth all around the world. As more wind farms will be built offshore in the future, onshore grid connection and transmission capacity may not be sufficient to integrate this growing amount of offshore wind farms....

This thesis describes the investigation of the lateral monopile response in weak rock and the effect of a zone of crushed rock that is induced by driven installation. The goal of the investigation is to study the impact of the weaker zone around a monopile on the lateral response. The thesis focuses on the modelling of a monopile in a finite...

The global ever growing energy demand, quest for renewable alternatives for fossil fuels and desire to reduce dependency on single countries has driven the increasing demand for offshore wind energy production. The advancing technologies that enable offshore wind turbines to gain efficiency go hand in hand with increasing sizes of components and...

A monopile installation project consists of the whole process of loading monopiles to vessels, transporting monopiles to the wind farm and drilling monopiles in the seabed. Each installation project has different characteristics as the weather at the installation location, the distances to the suppliers and the vessels that are available differ...

Over the past few decades, there has been a significant increase in global energy consumption. To address the risks associated with climate change, there is an increasing urgency to transition towards renewable energy sources. With this growing demand, the interest in offshore wind energy has increased significantly, leading to the construction...

The ambitious goals towards the decarbonization of the global energy sector have amplified the demand for renewable energy resources. Amongst the renewables, offshore wind possesses a pivotal role in this endeavour, showcasing remarkable growth in recent years. However, this rapid expansion has been accompanied by a series of technical...

The demand of offshore wind energy has increased enormously in the last decade, and continues to do so in the foreseeable future. The monopile will remain the most important foundation structure. There is however not yet a durable solution for its main disadvantage; the under water sound radiation during installation. In this report a new,...

To meet global green energy targets, the bottom founded offshore wind industry is looking for ways to economically expand markets to deeper waters. A reduction of the hydrodynamic load is necessary to achieve this. One option is to perforate the monopile around the splash zone. Here the related work of Q. Star is continued through the...

To support offshore wind turbines (OWT), monopiles are currently the most frequently used foundation method. These monopiles are open-ended steel tubes with a diameter of 5 - 12 m, which are most often installed in the seabed by means of hydraulic impact hammering usually mounted...

Reducing noise pollution during offshore monopile installation is crucial for marine life. Current installation methods create too much noise or do not have the certainty of reaching the required depths. By using a Vibrohammer combined with a Jet-ring this problem could be solved. A Jet-ring is a tool to reduce the sand induced inside shaft...

The offshore monopile decommissioning demand will become definite in the coming years. Our responsibility is to ensure the rights and duties of other legitimate uses by completely removing the ageing monopile from the seabed to continuously redeveloping offshore wind farms within the same location. The growing number of past, present, and future...

One of the biggest challenges of the century is the fight against global warming. In all sectors people are doing their best to reduce their carbon footprints and their impact on the environment. In the energy sector this is done by making use of renewable energy sources (RES), such as wind turbines, instead of fossil fuels. This transition to...

The demand for wind energy has led to the need for larger offshore wind turbines, which require larger monopiles for support. Vibratory pile driving is a common technique for installing these monopiles, but current engineering models are designed for smaller diameter monopiles and may not be applicable to larger ones. Additionally, the vibratory...
