Largely hidden beneath the waves, marine infrastructure is critical to the effective operation of our offshore energy and communication systems. These are the platforms, subsea structures, pipelines, moorings, and power and telecom cables that underpin our offshore activities in oil and gas, wind, wave and tidal energy, and global telecommunications. The design of subsea cables and pipelines can present unique challenges, which are often times in conflict with one another, necessitating a delicate balance between issues like water depth and calculated risk factors.
Putting Our Experience to Work for You
We at WSP possess extensive engineering capabilities, covering geotechnical, electrical (including HVDC) and mechanical aspects of subsea product. Our experience stretches from beach landings and shallow coastal regions to the deep ocean, and environments from the equator to the arctic. This blend of capability and experience enables us to offer you cutting edge, cost-effective solutions.
Offshore wind and marine renewables are relatively young but rapidly developing technologies. The range of physical environment and technology types embraced by individual projects require a combination of electrical, civil, structural and environmental disciplines, coupled with strengths in health and safety, quality systems and interface management to ensure effective project delivery. The breadth and depth of our expertise, twinned with its global footprint, makes us a strong partner for the harnessing of offshore wind and marine renewable energy.
