Windfarm Foundations

With the installation of the turbines, MDB Marine can assist with the survey of the sea bed, foundation positioning and connection checks with the floating foundations. With the operations, inspections of the foundations structure and, if required, the anchoring to the sea bed.

Above the water line, inspections on the foundation can be achieved by the use of the magnetic crawler.

Maintenance regime will depend on the type of foundation that requires inspection.

There are two types of foundations that will require different type of inspections.With a monopile, ROV inspections of the J-tube and cabling may be required along with UT and CP readings.

Jackets may require general/close visual inspections on all the welds of the lattice-work that makes up the jacket. Cathodic protection and Ultrasonic readings may also be required.
