Scour Protection

Services throughout the project life cycle

The development of scour and the mobility of the seabed are taken into account alongside detailed foundation and cable design of offshore wind farm projects.

Scour protection around the foundation and around cables depend upon the hydro-dynamic parameters found in the MetOcean study, amongst other factors. The scour protection should be considered as an integrated part of the design.

Several types of scour protection systems can be utilised in the design, depending on the design philosophy and maintenance strategy. Scour protection systems must also take the potential appearance of sand waves into account. This challenges the prediction of the sea bed level in relation to the foundation and cable design.
