Another innovation in the construction of offshore wind farms

1 May 2019

Van Oord and AdBm Technologies have demonstrated the new AdBm Noise Mitigation System (NMS), with support from TNO. The NMS reduces underwater noise resulting from offshore pile driving wind turbine foundations. This means less disturbance for marine mammals near the construction site. The test results are favourable. For this reason, Van Oord will be able to use the NMS in future wind farms, amongst others during the construction of the Borssele wind farm. MORE ❯
