Watch this event

Beatrice is Scotland’s largest offshore wind farm and, once construction is completed in 2019, will have a capacity of 588MW, enough to power 450,000 homes. The wind farm comprises 86 jackets structures founded on driven piles. The combination of significant water depths (up to 56m), complex geology and a demanding project schedule made design of the foundations one of the most challenging aspects of the project.
