ENGIE Fabricom studying monopiles at mystery UK offshore wind farm
ENGIE Fabricom has secured a contract to analyze the current performance and suitability of monopile foundations at an undisclosed offshore wind farm in the UK.
ENGIE Fabricom said it is carrying out cathodic protection and pH monitoring of the internal water within over 50 monopiles at a wind farm located on the east coast of England for “one of the UK’s largest offshore wind companies”.
Monitoring equipment is being lowered into each monopile’s foundation internal water, after which the measurements are analyzed.
The company will later issue a report outlining a series of recommendations to the client which will be underpinned by the DNV specification for cathodic protection.
In addition, ENGIE Fabricom will complete external foundation inspections, including boat landings, ladders, and platforms to investigate any potential structural or coating issues.
This will be conducted in tandem with the cathodic protection and pH monitoring works.
