Underwater noise is a big concern when installing offshore wind farms. For example, pile driving to secure offshore foundations transmits loud booms through the water and for many miles. The full impact of construction noise on marine life is yet unknown, but potentially dangerous to certain species of sea life. So what if it was possible to reduce offshore construction noise at its source?

A consortium including Siemens GamesaUniversal Foundation, Aalborg University, Fred. Olsen Windcarrier and Offshoreenergy.dk has been awarded 3.8m EUR by the Energy Technology Development and Demonstration Programme (EUDP) via the Danish Ministry of Energy, Utilities, and Climate. The partnership seeks to demonstrate how an industrialized suction-bucket concept can slash the installation costs of offshore wind foundations.
