Floating wind systems are complex dynamic structures that require precise engineering to ensure a realistic, robust design that maximises performance cost-effectively. We bring 30 years of expertise in engineering for dynamic marine environments, a technology-driven approach and a practical understanding of offshore system design, geotech, hardware, materials and installation to offer optimised, leading-edge solutions for floating wind developments. 

Full system advanced global analysis and modelling 

We provide full global analysis and modelling of the entire floating wind system, stress testing every element, interface and interaction from the seabed to the tip of the turbine to provide confidence in the design for its intended use and identify design limitations and risks. Where there is an opportunity to optimise performance and reduce costs, we will propose options and alternatives.  

We act as a “system integrator” on floating wind projects from concept development through to front-end engineering and design. Our integrated design approach considers single and adjacent floating structures, turbines, power cables, anchors and moorings

Integrated design approach 

We act as a “system integrator” on floating wind projects from concept development through to front-end engineering and design. Our integrated design approach considers single and adjacent floating structures, turbines, power cables, anchors and moorings. Our multidisciplinary approach means we can quickly identify challenges and develop the most cost-effective floating wind solutions. This allows us to manage system engineering and interfaces between platform, mooring and cable at all project phases. 

Advanced analysis for power cables  

Simulating the dynamic movement of power cables can provide confidence that the design is reliable, low risk and able to operate as intended. We provide dynamic projections of cable behaviour and offer a working solution to optimize configuration and design. 

We also provide cross-sectional analysis to predict the integrity of the power cable and the umbilical and identify the condition of the individual armour wires and plastic sheaths. 

Cost-conscious approach to minimize Levelized Cost of Energy (LCOE) 

We have a commercially lead engineering approach that pushes the limits of technology whilst focusing on making the project economics work to provide the best return on investment. We do this by scaling proven designs using specially selected components and materials, reducing conservatism in analysis and optimising fabrication and installation processes.
