MonoBaseWind is a combination of a Monopile and a Gravity Base. The difference being that the Monopile is driven in the ground to find the bearing capacity to carry the wind turbine loads, while the Gravity Base sits on top of the ground and relies on it’s own weight to provide the support to the wind turbine. The resemblance being the above water part which is identical.
The design of the Gravity Base is governed by the structural strength required to take all the loads, the geotechnical properties of the seabed and the naval architectural design of the temporary conditions required to transport and install the turbine.
The structural details and general layout has been optimised for an efficient construction to reduce production time and costs.
