WEBINAR: Exposing seabed hazards and reducing unexpected costs
This Lloyd’s Register webinar will examine the main inputs required for estimating the costs of developing a wind farm site and reveal why soil types can significantly influence fixed and floating foundation designs
Join Will Hodshon and Richard Pike of Lloyd's Register, and Andrea Diambra from the University of Bristol, to find out how to build a cost model that can aid in the identification of favorable ground conditions for the installation of an offshore wind project

In the initial stages of planning a new offshore wind project, the water depth, unknown seabed hazards and foundation costs, are some of the main concerns when assessing a site. Without careful planning your project is at risk of running over schedule, increasing in cost and having a negative impact on safety.
Building a cost model, can help energy companies identify favorable ground conditions for installation and accurately estimate the foundation costs at the pre-auction stage, helping engineers to reduce unexpected costs and keep their projects on track.
Join this webinar to discover:
- The main inputs required for estimating the costs of developing a wind farm site.
- Why soil types can significantly influence fixed and floating foundation designs.
- Geographical differences in estimating the cost of foundations of fixed and floating wind turbines.
- How desktop studies can be used to help select the foundation design.
