OWC’s multidisciplinary engineering services are focused on supporting clients in delivering, operating and financing renewable energy projects at scale whilst keeping a competitive price point.
Demands on technology and innovation as projects become bigger, better and in new territories.
Engineering design solutions that are efficient and durable to maintain competitive production costs.
Shortage in resource and required skill sets.
Design solutions to develop projects at scale.
Cost incentives for innovation.
Offshore and Marine Engineering Services
With a large multi-disciplinary team of naval architects, hydrodynamicists, ocean engineers, and marine engineers, OWC is well placed to offer offshore engineering.
Structural Engineering, Design & Analysis
Our structuring engineering specialists offer services at all phases of offshore wind projects, including optioneering, FEED studies, optimisation to reduce LCoE and increase profitability, and detailed design.
Wind Turbine Generator (WTG) Engineering
During the FEED stage of a project, OWC and INNOSEA’s specialist Integrated Loads Analysis (ILA) service provides design load inputs to the support structure design process. Either generic or OEM-provided numerical models of the wind turbine can be used. At later design stages, the same ILA service is used to check the suitability of the selected wind turbine to the wind farm site.
We perform electrical engineering for WTGs and arrays, offshore substations, onshore and offshore cables, onshore substations, and grid interconnection.
OWC’s electrical engineering department has a depth of expertise covering system design, planning support, procurement and detailed design. Our team has over 25 years of experience in offshore wind electrical engineering spanning Europe, Asia and the Americas.
Through our sister company INNOSEA, OWC calls on the in-depth technical knowledge of our ocean infrastructure specialists to offer a range of services, including:
- Cable and mooring design analysis
- Hydrodynamic analyses
- Tank testing
- Wave & tidal energy
- Transportation & installation engineering
INNOSEA, part of OWC, is a specialist multidisciplinary engineering, strategy advisory and R&D consultancy in marine renewable energies, working in offshore wind – fixed and floating, floating solar PV, wave & tidal energy, deep-water tech, hydrogen power, and decarbonisation initiatives.
