Offshore Wind Accelerator: Monopile driveability guidance for vibratory pile driving

Calling for entries from companies and consortia interested to undertake a study to investigate monopile driveability through vibratory pile driving for large monopiles.

The main objectives of this work are to:

  • better understand monopile driveability through vibratory pile driving for large monopiles and identify opportunities to reduce excessive conservatism;
  • provide information about possible difficult conditions or limitations with vibratory pile driving and what alternative or mitigation options compliant with low noise requirements to choose;
  • produce a guidance report with recommended practices or considerations for various scenarios, based on the latest literature evidence, new research and the leverage of data from past experiences in this or other relevant industries (e.g. onshore construction, oil and gas).

Clarification questions should be received by 10 July 2020. Answers to these questions will be posted below by 17 July.

The closing date to receive tender submissions is 3 August 16:00 BST.

All clarification questions and tender submissions should be sent electronically, by their respective deadlines, to
