In the future, a long‐established steel company from Saarland will produce foundation elements (MegaMonoPiles) in Nordenham for wind farms in the North Sea. A total of around €175 million is being invested in the construction of the plant at Blexer Groden/Nordenham, which is expected to begin...
Offshore wind energy development is lagging far behind the ambitious targets that the German government set at a time when an energy turnaround was propounded. Interest in using monopile foundations in a wider field is therefore growing because this type of foundation has proved to be the most...
Steels for structural applications for offshore oil and gas as well as offshore wind installations have to fulfil demanding requirements that exceed those for steels used in normal structural steelwork. The applicable steel grades must show an optimum trade‐off between sufficient toughness and...
The effectiveness of high frequency mechanical impact treatment for increasing the fatigue strength of welded structures has been investigated in several research projects over recent years. Based on extensive fatigue test data, design recommendations have been developed by different...
Offshore piles have to withstand predominantly cyclic axial loads when they are installed in multi‐pile configurations, as in jacket foundations. The dimensions of the pile are governed by both the internal capacity and the fatigue behaviour of the steel cross‐section as well as by its external...
