Aker Solutions has signed a front-end engineering and design (FEED) contract with Empire Offshore Wind to study the design and delivery of concrete foundations for the wind turbine generators (WTG) for the planned Empire Wind project in New York, USA.
Aker Solutions will analyse how to design, construct and install concrete substructures standing on the seafloor to support the WTGs. The scope also includes analysis of construction methods and models for marine operations to install the structures. The work starts immediately and will be completed in August 2021. Empire Wind is being developed by Equinor and BP through their 50/50 strategic partnership in the USA.
