Turbine Engineering

At LOC Renewables our wind turbine engineers have detailed knowledge of wind turbine functionality and loading, and consequently have the expertise to optimise wind farm design and operations. We have performed a wide range of turbine design and suitability studies for both offshore and onshore projects.​

We provide turbine engineering support to clients through each step of the development, operation and decommissioning phases of an offshore wind farm project. We provide these services to wind turbine OEMs, wind farm developers, financial investors and insurers. In addition, we conduct applied research on behalf of industry bodies and government agencies.

LOC Renewables turbine engineering services

  • Wind farm concept design & optimisation​
  • Cost of energy modelling  ​
  • Development & review of wind resource measurement campaigns  ​
  • Data processing support for wind measurement campaigns  ​
  • Energy yield assessment during development and operational phases ​
  • Support structure design for bottom-fixed and floating wind turbines  ​
  • Coupled loads analysis for offshore wind turbines & their support structures ​
  • Software development for loads analysis and structural design​
  • Technical due diligence ​
  • Wind turbine suitability reviews  ​
  • Lifetime extension assessment  ​

Our wind turbine engineers contribute to the definition of standards for the design and installation of bottom-fixed and floating wind turbines. We are able to assess site conditions relative to type class conditions and as input to the support structure design process. For wind farm locations subject to tropical cyclones or seismic events we are able to define inputs to the design process, to assess risks for existing structures and to advise on implications for construction operations.
