Growth through Research, development & demonstration in Offshore Wind

News item with the spinning geo-centrifuge of GROW partner Deltares

This geo-centrifuge reaches fifty times the g-forces as experienced in a rollercoaster and is used for tests in our MIDAS project. In these tests, the loads on monopiles in the North Sea are simulated and performed on scaled test monopiles.

MIDAS aims to get more knowledge about repeating loads on monopile foundations of wind turbines. For more background information see our webmagazine and listen to our podcast.
