With full installation and electrification of the Seagreen offshore wind farm being obtained in October 2023, the background engineering to these magnificent structures can be lost. It is known in the industry that there is an inherent risk in the installation of suction caisson foundations which make these foundations less preferable as a solution. However, with engineering acumen and ingenuity, these risks can be mitigated. 

The talk will place emphasis on the geotechnical aspects of the suction caisson engineering, including caisson buckling and de-risking the installation. It will also focus on the transportation and installation of the structures. Come join some of the key members of the engineering team who made the Seagreen project into a reality. The project was also the recipient of the British Geotechnical Association's (BGA) Fleming Award in December 2023, the aspects of this award will also be presented.
