Atkins designs world-first deepwater offshore wind jacket substructures for Beatrice Offshore Windfarm Limited

Source: Atkins

84 jacket substructures and associated foundations for the Siemens 7MW turbine will be installed at varying water depths up to 55m which represents the deepest jacket substructures in use for an offshore wind farm anywhere in the world.

Seaway Heavy Lifting (SHL) has appointed Atkins to carry out the detailed design of the jacket substructure and foundations for the 588MW Beatrice Offshore Windfarm Limited (BOWL) development in the outer Moray Firth, UK, as part of SHL’s EPCI contract with developer BOWL (a partnership of SSE Renewables, SDIC Power, and Copenhagen Infrastructure Partners).

84 jacket substructures and associated foundations for the Siemens 7MW turbine will be installed at varying water depths up to 55m which represents the deepest jacket substructures in use for an offshore wind farm anywhere in the world. Detailed design and engineering is well advanced with Atkins’ offshore wind team supporting the project from Glasgow and delivered from a number of offices in the UK.

In another first, Atkins is undertaking an innovative iterative approach to detailed coupled analysis and environmental loading analysis of the substructure, helping to better understand the complex relationship between the wind turbine and substructure as well as the environmental impacts on the overall structure.
