Foundations are the only major component of offshore wind farms that cannot be replaced. It’s the foundation that determines the lifespan, through-life cost projections and viability of entire wind farms. Arup has developed an innovative monitoring system and cloud-based platform to enable in-service foundation life to be assessed by our clients in-house. 

LEAP (Life Extension and Asset Management Platform) assesses foundation integrity and guides decision making. By monitoring the structural health of the foundation, the platform enables wind farm operators like London Array to assess the lifespan of in-service foundations in-house, and inform decisions on operations and maintenance.
