Cooperation project: Development of an ecologically and econimcally optimzed foundation system for offshore wind turbines



Federal Ministry for Economic Affairs and Energy (BMWi)

Partner: Leibniz-Universität Hannover (Institut für  Geotechnik) & Vallourec
Laufzeit: 10/2015 - 01/2019


The research project Sealance examines a novel pile foundation technology for offshore support structures. This support structure is cost-efficient, can be scaled flexibly and produces considerably reduced noise emissions during placement in the sea bed. In the support structure test center, first large-scale installation trials and then load-bearing tests will be carried out, including with prior cyclic loading.
