Energy Islands

energy island north sea

We are proud and happy to be involved in the energy island project where we will quantify geotechnical parameters from seismic data to help with de-risking of the foundation of the Danish energy island in the North Sea. Energy islands will play a crucial role for the growing offshore wind energy capacity.

At SolidGround we will do an integrated interpretation of geotechnical and geophysical data with a quantitive approach. An important part of our workflow will be seismic pre-stack inversion of both ultrahigh frequency and medium frequency data.

SolidGround will be a part of a bigger puzzle where we will work on data acquired for Energinet, and work closely together with leading experts from the industry.

why SolidGround?

With the construction of islands it is important to know the geotechnical behaviour of the subsoil to get an understanding of potential settlements and differential settlements. With the construction of bigger islands this information is needed for deeper depth, also typically deeper than the depth of CPT measurements. Here we can utilise the seismic data to extract the information at deeper depths.

Our integrated interpretation with a quantitative approach makes it possible to obtain a spatial understanding of the geotechnical ground conditions. With pre-stack seismic inversion we can invert for bulk modulus, shear modulus, Young’s modulus, Poissons’s ratio and density – from this we can derive other geotechnical parameters like cone resistance, sleeve friction, compressibility and soil types.
