The foundations of offshore wind energy converters and scour protection

Hydraulic engineering

The satisfying of North and Far-Eastern Russian offshore territories requirements in electric power is possible through the creation of the Offshore Wind Energy Converters (OWEC). The foundation for theoffshore settings can consist of concrete, steel piles and multi-supporting structures. In this article engineering measures for protection of seabed from scour near OWEC with the use of different coverings are considered. Recommendations are based on analysis of experimental studies.
