Tidal resistant foundation design

Nearshore wind turbines

Nearshore foundation East Vietnam Sea
All CTE Wind’s nearshore foundation designs allow to save 30 percent of the construction costs compared to similar projects. The piles have an average length of 60 meters and are hammered into the muddy nearshore underground.

CTE Wind Vietnam has been awarded with its 3rd nearshore project. To this day, the Vietnamese expert in foundation design has calculated 27 nearshore wind turbine foundations.

Hanoi (VNM) /La Richardais (FRA) – CTE Wind International branch office in Vietnam (CTV) captures the spirit of the times with its new design for nearshore foundation for wind turbine generator. With its 3rd project in the intertidal zone in Mekong delta of Vietnam CTV won again the customers’ trust. This is already the 3rd  project since 2019. With 18 wind turbines and a total power 75MW this project has increased the total of final designs made by CTV to 27. The other two nearshore projects are located in theThanh Hai and in Vung Tau provinces.

New design allows up to 30 % savings

All CTE Wind’s nearshore foundation designs allow to save 30 percent of the construction costs compared to similar projects due to the astonishing design. For the 4.1 MW machines CTE Wind Vietnam has designed a foundation with 550m3 of concrete, 120 tons of steel and 44 piles. The piles have an average length of 60 meters and are hammered into the muddy nearshore underground. In fact, the geotechnics were very challenging and the piles were also designed in-house to withstand tides, waves and ship movements close to the platforms.
