TWD Proved Higher MP Friction
Over the course of the last years TWO developed an advanced friction measurement method and probabilistic verification of monopile stability during transit. Both have now received certification from DNVGL. This sets a new standard in monopile seafastening.
Seafastening of future monopiles on heavy lift installation vessels becomes an ever-increasing challenge. One challenge is verification of monopile stability on its supports at high vessel accelerations. With this recently certified method, engineers at TWD are able to increase the workability of designs, while making them safer and more cost-effective.
The optimized methodology results in the ability to increase workability by 20-50% whilst maintaining the highest safety standards.
The offshore wind industry ventures into unexplored territories where severe environmental conditions become the new standard. TWD can use the developed method in future projects related to transatlantic transport or in areas where installation is more challenging than the north sea. TWDs verification method and friction test set-up makes the difference in guaranteeing the stability of monopiles of the future during transit.
Jacket and TP Lifting Tools from Temporary Works Design – TWD
Offshore Wind Farm Contractors continuously aim to complete their projects more efficiently and safely. TWD assists contractors by providing designs for mission equipment, such as jacket and TP lifting tools, that are tailored to perform in the offshore operation.
TWD On Thames Tideway Project
In June 2017 we had a call with our first design brief from the project team working on the Central Section of the Thames Tideway project. A project which is better known locally as London’s Super Sewer.
TWD on the Thames
A 100m long concrete culvert has been immersed in the Thames, right in the center of London. This vital part of London’s new Super Sewer had to be floated-out underneath the historic Blackfriars Bridge. Read On...
