Offshore pile load tests

Ørsted is planning to establish an offshore wind farm in the Strait of Taiwan and wanted to opti­mise their design, especially regarding the wind turbine foundations and their load-bearing capac­ity. So, Aarsleff performed a number of advanced tests, where several of our specialist skills within offshore and design & engineering came into play. Six test piles were driven 75 metres into the seabed in the strait between Taiwan and China, and a large amount of data was collected.
