Offshore wind turbines operate in a harsh environment where maintenance and inspection are costly and time consuming. The corrosion and fatigue of the structure consequently represent a major challenge for both the design, and Operation and Maintenance. 

In this training course participants will be taken through the techniques used in the design and maintenance of offshore wind turbines, such as fatigue design, fracture mechanics-based inspection, and defect assessment. Additionally, the impact of residual stress effects on predicting the component life will be explained. In doing this, the participants will receive a comprehensive overview of structural integrity as applied to offshore wind turbine foundations.

The course consists of 6hr of live sessions with the instructor. All training content is provided through your EngineeringTrainer account. 

After the course you maintain 1-year unlimited access to the course, including any new course material. This allows you to perform modules again should you need to refresh your knowledge.

Live sessions

This course consists of instructor-led group sessions, these group sessions can be Virtual or Onsite. During these sessions participants can ask questions to the instructor which are discussed, as well as questions submitted beforehand in the learning portal.

After each live session used slides and exercise documents are made available to participants on the learning portal.

Please note that for privacy reasons no recordings of the live sessions are made or provided.

You receive 1-year unlimited access to the course. This allows you to watch content again if this is beneficial for your daily work activities.

The live sessions are scheduled together with the customer and are private for their team only. 

Typically the training course would be scheduled as:

  • Virtual: 2 sessions of 3 hours

  • Onsite: 1 day of 6 hours plus breaks

A personal digital certificate will be made available to each participant upon full attendance.
