35 years of experience

NIRAS’ experience with offshore wind dates back to the very first steps the emerging wind industry made into the sea at Vindeby in Denmark in 1991, where we provided geotechnical advice for the design of the foundations for that pioneering project. Since then we have followed our clients into new and exciting markets internationally and worked with them to realise some of the largest and most complex projects yet delivered. We have lost count of the MW of projects we have advised upon on in one capacity or another but it is certainly more than 50 GW and increasing all the time.
