Offshore Wind Accelerator: Wave run-up forces on secondary structures of a monopile foundation

Call for entries from companies and consortia interested to undertake a study that aims to identify and define methods to fill knowledge gaps associated with wave-run up forces on offshore wind structures and associated secondary components.

The main objectives of this work are to:

  • Review and summarise the work that has been done to date to investigate and calculate wave-run up forces on wind turbine foundations
  • Identify knowledge gaps associated with the calculation of wave run-up forces on current and future offshore wind foundations
  • Define methods that could be used as part of a future project to assess and validate wave run-up forces

The deadline for clarification questions has passed. Responses to the clarification questions received are available below.

The closing date to receive tender submissions is 14:00 BST 22 April 2021.

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