Suction Buckets: Large-Scale Test Reveals Increased Tensile Capacity During Storms

Official Press Release Fraunhofer IWES:

Fraunhofer IWES tested two large-scale suction buckets in a 1:5 scale in early 2018. The physical experiments at the Test Center for Support Structures in Hanover (TTH) are the first of their kind in Germany.

The test results confirmed the enormous potential of this foundation concept for reliable and cost-effective deployment in offshore wind farms. Within the experimental work the IWES researchers were also able to quantify an effective temporary increase in ... More: Official Press Release Fraunhofer IWES
