Mono Buckets for German wind farm
Posted by Charles Decuir on January 8, 2018 1:15 PM EST
Mono-bucket foundation technology for offshore windfarms could be tested on the Deutsche Bucht Wind Farm offshore Germany.
The technology, developed by Universal Foundations, a Fred Olsen company, was picked for the Bucht wind farm as a pilot project. Two would be added to the farm, with accompanying winds turbines, adding 17MW to the 252MW project.
Deutsche Bucht is Northland Power’s third offshore wind project. It is in about 40m water depth, 95km northwest of the island of Borkum in the German North Sea.
