Quality assurance and scour protection at the Amrumbank West offshore wind farm

2018-06-04T11:09:59+00:00

Geotextile sand containers were used as an alternative to a granular scour-protection system for the Amrumbank West wind farm in Germany. There were two decisive arguments in favour of the "Soft Rock" solution: The sand containers required only a third as much of typically used rock material, and in the construction schedule, their installation [...]
