ABSTRACT: Over the course of the past 10 years wind power has become an important factor in power production. In addition offshore wind power is 30% more efficient than on shore. During the first decade of this century Europe has installed more than 2500 MW and development is increasing. 

The aim of this paper is to give the audience an overview into the different structures, methods of installation and securing the structures to the seabed, based on a broad experience in this field. The presentation will address logistic challenges, vessels used, driving aggregates, drills, lifting, grout installation, UHPC grout material and grout seals.
