Since 2012, GDG has been developing in-house optimization procedures for monopile engineering which provide significant savings to developers and contractors by reducing the size of offshore foundations.

In recent projects, GDG has been able to offer up to 25% savings on the steel weights which translates to a substantial CAPEX cost reduction.  Managing Director, Paul Doherty, stated that “the value engineering that we can offer to the industry is the culmination of a significant internal research effort that has undergone extensive validation and testing. Our optimization design tools, have been proven against independently commissioned field work, offshore measurements and most recently against the results of the joint-industry-funded PISA project”.

In recent months, GDG has also expanded its offshore geotechnical design team with the addition of several key experts in monopile behavior including Dr. David Igoe, who was previously instrumental in the delivery of the PISA JIP on monopile behavior. David commented that he “was excited about the opportunities that lie ahead for GDG through innovative design for the offshore wind sector”.
