Norwegian Geotechnical Institute has been awarded a contract for a structural measurement campaign at Ørsted’s Hornsea 2 offshore windfarm in the UK
The scope of the contract includes the design, production and installation of instrumentation for six wind turbines to monitor monopile foundations, transition pieces and towers.
Instrumentation systems supplied by NGI will provide data for structural health and monitoring during the installation phase and throughout the life of the windfarm. Data will automatically be transmitted ashore at given intervals for analysis.
The sensors are due to be installed later this year and final offshore commissioning is set for 2022.
NGI has worked in the offshore wind industry for 15 years, having built on experience from instrumentation and monitoring of offshore structures for the oil and gas industry.
Hornsea 2 is 89 km off the Yorkshire coast in the North Sea and will have a capacity of 1.4 GW. It is due to be fully operational in 2022.
Riviera will host a week of free to attend 45-minute webinars focused on offshore wind commencing 8 June. Register your interest now
