11:00 AM C Design concepts – design criteria – design standards

Foundations are one of critical components of OWTs not only because of the overall stability of the structure but also because of financial viability of the project. Foundation selection plays an important
role in the overall concept design for offshore wind farms as there are large financial implications attached to the choices made. Typically, foundation costs 25 to 34% of the overall costs.
