Abstract

The shallow coastline and the consistent wind conditions in the Gulf of Bothnia provide a good environment for wind energy production. However, the sea freezes annually, introducing the most significant uncertainties in the support structure design for offshore wind turbines. Ice ridges are common ice features in the Gulf of Bothnia. Therefore, the interaction with an ice ridge must be considered in the structural design for support structures of offshore wind turbines. A special emphasis was made on narrow structures.
