Western Australia university wins grant to develop offshore guidelines
The University of Western Australia's Centre for Offshore Foundation Systems has won a A$395,000 (€252,000) government grant to fund a research project to design guidelines for the installation of innovative foundations for the offshore wind sector.
The centre's associate professor Britta Bienen will work with Lloyd’s Register Group on the project that aims to address gaps in current knowledge and develop more reliable and economic designs.
Bienen said: “The funding will further assist us in training young talent in offshore engineering and place UWA firmly on the map as a global player in offshore wind research.”
The money was awarded under the Australian Research Council’s Linkage Projects and Future Fellowships schemes.
