As technical, commercial, and logistical hurdles are overcome, offshore floating wind power represents a step change in offshore energy production.
Houlder is playing a key role in making offshore floating wind power a reality. We bring both extensive experience in the offshore environment and our naval architecture expertise to bear on the latest innovations in offshore floating wind.
Our capabilities include hydrodynamics (vessel motions), stability calculations, structural design, fatigue assessments, mooring and riser analysis, environmental studies, towing plans, logistics and planning.
In addition to the naval architecture and engineering skill set that is the core of our business, we also have master mariner experience in-house, with first-hand experience of installing offshore moorings, as well as installation engineers with experience of installing dynamic flexible and umbilical risers and subsea cables.
