ONSHORE WIND STRUCTURES
We have years of Expertise in providing Optimized Designs and Consultation of Onshore WTG Foundation and Towers for major OEMs and IPPs in the Global Wind Energy market which have been validated
by major certifying bodies like CSIR-SERC, UL, DN-VGL, etc.,
Our Design Philosophy
Our Design Philosophy is to optimize the foundation and tower design by maximum utilization of local resources available at site. Understanding the soil dynamics and its interaction with structures using Innovative tools and Finite Element Analysis techniques, we are able to reduce the requirement of steel and concrete in foundation designs and comfortably meet design requirements as per IEC and applicable codes.
At NeXHS, we believe in optimizing the foundation design by maximum utilization of local resources available at site in our designs.
A typical onshore foundation is about ~ 5% of the overall project cost and just by optimizing the designs and by utilizing most of the natural resources available at site, we could target to save 1% to 1.5% on the overall project. This savings could add up to one’s profit or else be buried as concrete in the soil.
For every combination of location, soil and wind turbine loads, there exists an opportunity for customization. At NeXHS, we carefully evaluate these combinations and propose optimal design solutions which are in turn cost-effective to our customers.
The Areas where we excel
Our Extended Services
Complete Wind Farm BOP Solutions
Extensive Geotechnical Investigation
Providing general guidance for geotechnical investigation execution through certified geotechnical engineering services.
Enhancing performance through soil investigation testing and evaluation.
Work scope preparation for geotechnical services based on discussions with our clients and the project proposed.
Foundation type recommendations based on the soil and bedrock conditions encountered and the proposed structures.
