Renewable Energy & Industry
Construction projects for industry are characterised by their variety. Delta Marine Consultants have all the expert knowledge it needs in-house to offer a wide variety of services, ranging form the inspection of concrete structures to the detail design of machine foundations, factory floors, pipe racks, cooling water plants, settling tanks, pump houses, hydroelectric power stations, wind energy facilities, storage tanks for oil and gas, and offshore platforms.
As with our projects in other sectors, coherence between design and construction is essential in industrial construction because all the design processes of the different discipline areas – pipework, concrete and steel structures, electrical installations, computers etc – run parallel.
Renewable energy is an integral part of the long term aim to reduce our CO2 emissions. The current European target is to source 20% of Europe's energy from renewable sources by 2020.
The wind energy sector is growing rapidly, as can be concluded from the recent completion of offshore wind fields and the increasing number of prospects in this field. The development of marine renewables (tidal and wave) also follows a trend of growth, although still behind on the wind energy sector.
Delta Marine Consultants has performed concept studies, tender designs and detail designs of offshore wind farms. Delta Marine Consultants is also working on various concept studies to commercialise tidal and wave energy.
