Maritime structures: efficiency and safety at sea

How do you build a foundation at sea, such as for a wind turbine or floating solar panels? Especially now that offshore wind turbines are getting bigger and bigger, this requires up-to-date knowledge of noise when piling, protection against corrosion and application of lighter materials. With test rigs and simulations, we help the industry push boundaries.
