Offshore Wind

MMI Engineering are recognised experts in the offshore wind sector.

The offshore wind industry presents a new set of technical and operational challenges. Solving the technical challenges requires a thorough understanding of the complex design issues involved with offshore wind and the ability to apply sound engineering principals. MMI personnel have been developing new technologies for frontier ocean energy projects for over 30 years and continue to provide innovative solutions for the industry.

MMI is widely recognized for developing analytical methods that are required to understand the complex nature of offshore wind systems operating in harsh marine environmental conditions. MMI specializes in the application of advanced analytical methods to achieve reliable design concepts for shallow and deepwater offshore wind systems. This experience includes concept development, feasibility studies and reliability comparisons of various offshore support structures, including:

  • Monopiles
  • Tripods
  • Jackets
  • Gravity Base Structures
  • Tension Leg Platforms
  • Design Certification
  • Standards Development
  • Fully-Coupled Analyses for Extreme Wind and Wave Conditions
  • FEED Studies
  • Preliminary and Detailed Design

MMI Engineering has also developed a software tool that can be used by stakeholders in the wind energy industry for a planning level assessment of a wind farm site. More information about this software tool, WEP-View, can be found here.
