Pilot project has started: Vibratory driving of monopiles can cut costs of offshore wind energy

Conducting research and development projects can provide potential for reducing costs and installation time when developing offshore wind farms. Another promising project has started this week under the management of the Carbon Trust’s Offshore Wind Accelerator (OWA), a world leading collaborative research and development programme to cut the cost of offshore wind energy: The offshore wind developers and operators RWE Innogy, DONG Energy, EnBW, E.ON and Vattenfall are running a one year onshore demonstration project near Cuxhaven on the German North Sea coast to validate the vibratory driving of wind turbine monopile foundations, in comparison and as evolution to current impact driving of these piles. The potential benefit is faster and more environmentally benign monopile installation in offshore wind farm projects.more
