Ramboll has the knowledge and experience to be a key contributor to advanced research and development activities within energy, structural and offshore engineering.
Large-scale and cost-effective use of wind energy requires integration of wind energy into the mix of energy sources and into the power grid. Ramboll establishes and reviews local, national and regional energy resource planning and incorporates wind energy into the planning schemes. We investigate the possibilities of combining wind energy with other energy sources with regard to carbon emissions, economy, security of supply and the electrical infrastructure.
Once an offshore wind farm is considered or has been decided upon, we provide support and advice as the owner's engineer throughout the development process on relevant technical, environmental, timing and financial matters.
Based on factors such as the choice of turbine and site conditions, Ramboll carries out all the necessary analyses to select the foundation type best suited for your offshore wind farm project.
Ramboll is the world leader within design of offshore foundations for wind turbines, having performed designs for more than 40 offshore wind farms. More than 65% of the world’s offshore wind turbines rise from foundations designed by Ramboll.
Ramboll has vast experience within design of complete substations including structures, topsides, facilities, helipads, electrical and mechanical equipment and safety issues.
After the design and installation phases, Ramboll provides asset management assistance based on our in-depth knowledge of the design of the structures.
In order to register and document all identified hazards, risk mitigation measures and recommendations for further control methods in an effective and sufficient way, Ramboll has developed the DRA tool “Soter” for the execution of Design Risk Assessments.
Ramboll has designed more offshore wind turbine foundations than any other company in the world due to our 30 years' experience with anchoring oil and gas rigs at sea. We have also been involved in the Burbo Bank wind farm project offshore the UK.
British Greater Gabbard will be the first offshore wind farm to be located on more than 30 metres of water. Ramboll will perform individualised foundation design for the 500 MW, 140 turbines project.
