At NIRAS Fraenkel we are able to provide expertise throughout the project life cycle, and have extensive experience in providing a range of services relating to offshore engineering, including the latest developments in tidal current energy.
Key services include:
NIRAS Fraenkel were responsible for the design of a large diameter steel monopile support column and wing assembly on which two rotor blades are mounted for a 1.25MW tidal energy system operated by Marine Current Turbines (Siemens). The wing assembly supporting the blades can be raised out of the water to permit maintenance to be undertaken safely.
Coastal engineering embraces the application of the knowledge of the dynamics
of winds, waves, tides, surges, currents and sediment movements to the design of
infrastructure at or near the coastline. Computer models are available to deal
with several of these aspects, but must be configured by those who have
extensive relevant understanding, both theoretical and practical. A strong team
of highly experienced engineers meet these requirements within our
Coastal engineering studies also play key parts in the layout of harbours and
the design and selection of the appropriate forms of construction for berths and
breakwaters within them.
