11:30 AM Integrated Project Logistics and Costs Calculation for Gravity Based Structures

The gravity based structure (GBS) is receiving renewed interest for its applicability for supporting
large turbines in deep water sites with challenging soil conditions. The transportation and
installation of these large foundations will increasingly be performed in rough sea conditions.
For three different GBS concepts simulations with the discrete event simulator ECN Install have
been performed. In this presentation, insight will be shared into the duration of the installation, and
the importance of different types of delays to installation costs.
