04: Detailed Project Design

Offshore wind online training course

In this course we will take a holistic view of the offshore wind farm design process

What you will learn:

Once developers have procured their lease areas and completed site surveys, they move from the original front-end engineering design into detailed design. In this course we’ll take a holistic view of the offshore wind farm design process, discussing key design drivers and what level of detail is required as the project progresses through the permitting process. The course will also discuss design drivers, what is required for micro-siting foundations and how that impacts structural design and the eventual manufacturing of the foundations. We’ll also discuss the latest trends and innovations in offshore wind foundation and turbine design.

Who should attend?

  • Professionals who have experience in renewable project engineering that are interested in the offshore wind design process
  • Professionals who are involved in non-engineering aspects of offshore wind project development – permitting, financing, etc. – to better understand how decisions and surveys completed during permitting phases of project development impact the design.
  • Government employees who want to better

Lead Instructor

Alana Duerr
Director, Offshore Wind North America

Dr. Duerr is the Director for the Offshore Wind North America practice within DNV GL Energy’s Renewables Advisory. She has been in the offshore renewables space for the past 11 years, with a specific focus on offshore wind for the past 7 years. Prior to DNV GL, Dr. Duerr was the Offshore Wind Lead for the U.S. Department of Energy’s Wind Energy Technologies Office where she led the offshore wind R&D portfolio, including the Advanced Technology Demonstration Projects, the National Offshore Wind R&D Consortium with NYSERDA, and was a leader in the development and implementation of the 2016 National Offshore Wind Strategy. Dr. Duerr received her B.S. in Naval Architecture and Marine Engineering from Webb Institute, and her Ph.D. in Ocean Engineering from Florida Atlantic University. The combination of her education and professional experiences have allowed her to dive deep into the technology and research aspects of offshore wind, including project siting, resource assessment, plant optimization, installation, construction, logistics, and U.S. specific market drivers, regulations, and supply chain challenges.
