Shorter foundations for offshore wind turbines win research award

The Ørsted-led PISA research project has provided essential new knowledge about how offshore wind turbine foundations can be designed in a smarter way to reduce production costs. In the long term, this can help make the green power cheaper. The project has now been rewarded with the prestigious Fleming award from the British Geotechnical Association.

PISA (Pile Soil Analysis) is a research project on the design of monopile foundations for offshore wind turbines. The main conclusion from the PISA project is that pile foundations don't need to be as long as previously assumed in order to withstand the huge wind forces the turbine's rotor blades are exposed to. It's important new knowledge, because shorter foundations make it cheaper to install offshore wind turbines,... ... More: Official Press Release Ørsted
