Offshore Innovation and Improvisation

Key Elements for Successful Geotechnical Investigations
Geotechnical investigations for offshore constructions require continuous technical innovation in order to meet market demands. This is also relevant to the growing offshore wind energy industry, which is itself on a path of constant innovation. The daily costs of offshore operations are high, meaning that honouring a contract satisfactorily and on time is important. To achieve this, improvisational skills are vital to overcome the challenges that may occur while testing and boring at sea.<P> The world’s first offshorewind farm was constructed just off the coast of Vindeby (Denmark, see Figure 2) in 1991, when GEO – the Danish Geotechnical Institute...
