The scope of the contract is design, production and installation of instrumentation of on two Offshore Wind Turbines, monitoring the Mono Pile (MP) foundation and Transition Piece (TP). The Danish Kriegers Flak Offshore Wind Farm park is located 15-40 km off the Danish coast in the Baltic Sea and designed to provide power for well over 600 000 households when completed. The Danish Kriegers Flak Offshore Wind Farm will provide a capacity of 0.6 GW with a total of 72 turbines.

The instrumentation system supplied by NGI will provide data to fully monitor the structures during operation after installation. The recorded data will be transmitted to shore at given intervals for further analysis. The system installations at the manufacturing yards are planned to be completed in May 2020 and final offshore commissioning is set for summer 2021.

"Being one of Vattenfall's important partners on the Danish Kriegers Flak Wind Farm is an important step for NGI" says Morten Saue, NGI's Head of Section for Instrumentation and Monitoring.

"This opportunity will allow NGI to provide high quality Structural Health Monitoring data to an important Client, and it opens up for future collaboration in smarter use of data in combination with advanced modelling techniques".

NGI has worked within the Offshore Wind industry for the past 15 years. We have built on our experience from instrumentation and monitoring of installations offshore structures for the offshore oil and gas industry. Already in the 1970's NGI developed the first generation of foundation and structural instrumentation and monitoring systems for the large gravity based concrete platforms in the North Sea- some of which are still in operation.
