To achieve the global goal of producing more clean energy, the offshore wind market has grown at rapid pace – nearly 30% per year since 2010. In addition, the cost of this form of renewable energy has fallen in recent years, further propelling the uptick. To continue at this pace, it’s imperative to more efficiently evaluate wind, wave and current conditions and the potential impact of your next clean offshore energy project on the environment.
In-depth knowledge and understanding of site-specific conditions are vital to properly design an offshore wind farm being it fixed or floating. In particular, environmental loads and response analyses are critical to ensure a proposed wind farm can safely withstand the conditions at a given site. It is equally important to determine the impacts a wind farm may have on life underwater to guarantee a sustainable generation of clean energy.
Since 1991, DHI has developed standards and tools to optimise wind farm design and ensure safe construction, operation and maintenance. In fact, more than 85% of commissioned offshore wind farms include DHI input. Recognised as best-in-class by certifiers, our methods, data and ecological modelling tools allow you to identify potential impacts early and throughout the project cycle to ease approval processes and reduce scheduling and investment risks to make your project more bankable.
Through a powerful and proven combination of in-situ field data, remote sensing, on-line monitoring and recognised numerical and physical modelling, the answers are within reach.
