Project objective

The objective of the GBS wind JIP is to improve the engineering methods for the logistics, transport and installation of gravity based wind turbine foundations. This will lead to more effective and safer operations with better workability and optimised logistics.

Expected outcome

The output of the ‘GBS wind’ JIP will be to improve the engineering methods for transport and installation, resulting in an improved logistics decision support model to accurately simulate offshore transport and installation of GBS foundations. The experimental and validated design methods will be used by participants to have a better quality and cost control for the transportation and installation operations.
