Fixed Offshore Wind

Home » Wind Consultancy » Fixed Offshore Wind Engineering Consultants

Global offshore wind is forecast to experience sevenfold growth between 2023 and 2032 as increasing new geographies announce plans to harness their local wind power resource. Whilst 20% of offshore wind power by 2030 is estimated to be floating wind, bottom-fixed offshore wind will continue to dominate with an established ability to generate at scale and is increasingly emerging as a mainstream supplier of low-carbon electricity.  

OWC has been supporting the development of fixed offshore wind since the technology’s conception, with experience on projects in Europe, North America, and Asia Pacific. Our project and engineering teams are well-versed in supporting both monopile and jacket foundations in fixed offshore wind. Our unique approach combines structural engineering with multi-disciplined geoconsulting and metocean to support clients in reaching the optimum design solutions for their foundations. 

Whilst fixed offshore wind has reached a level of maturity, its widespread expansion has brought fresh challenges to development schedules, supply chains, availability of suitable port infrastructure, marine logistics and project costs, with supply not meeting demand.   

OWC combines technical knowledge with practical experience in the sector, supply chain and marine expertise, along with multidisciplined engineering, to help you deliver a fixed offshore wind project of maximum productivity and at optimum cost.  

From concept to operations, even through decommissioning – our clients can be assured of an unrivalled insight into every aspect of a project through its full lifecycle, advising on technical decisions that will add value at every project stage.
