MT Højgaard to Speak at Offshore Wind Conference in Hamburg, Germany
Danish MT Højgaard is speaking at the Offshore Wind Construction, Installation & Commissioning Conference in Hamburg from 14 to 15 October.
On 14 October MT Højgaard will be giving a presentation on the study of the foundation types XL-monopiles and jackets – seen from an EPCI perspective. The presentation takes as its point of departure the next generation of turbines; the 6.0 MW turbines and appertaining greater variations in water depths. Furthermore both the design, fabrication and installation process of the foundation types will be compared and future requirements for the industry pointed in order to maintain evolution.
– Understanding how reduction in costs can be made despite moving to deeper waters and through developing the monopile and jacket concept thus needed – we have identified an untapped potential for XL monopiles, says Kim R Andersen, Director Offshore & Steel Bridges, MT Højgaard.
The conference is the 5th of the kind and is tailored to facilitate the development of UK and European partnerships to drive forward offshore project deployment.
