Predicting scour in offshore wind turbines – now a breeze

Making offshore wind energy more viable with long-term scour prediction tools

The total offshore wind power capacity is expected to touch 75GW by 2020 and the possibilities are immense. However, the offshore wind energy industry is still stricken with the burden of heavy capital investments. Our newly developed tool – ‘WiTuS’ can lighten that load. With WiTuS, we can predict long-term mono pile scouring – this can help in simplifying turbine designs, effectively reducing the investment required.
