Working in both Fresh Water and Salt Water.
Offshore Wind, though becoming a mainstay of renewable energy in Europe, has barely made a ripple in North America and Canada. MKI has provided resource assessment for offshore projects and preliminary designs of projects. Constraint mapping and resource assessment goes hand in hand. Constraints, such as water depth, oil and gas infrastructure, coral reefs, and other environmental factors are identified and mapped to determine the optimal location of wind turbines, transformer stations, underwater cabling, and on-shore facilities. Desktop studies of geology, bathymetry, and ground conditions assist in site selection and layout.
How we can help you
Wind resource assessment
Using multiple modeling techniques, MKI provides mapping of the offshore environment with seasonal variations. Accurate results are obtained by using on-shore and/or off-shore meteorological data for calibration.
