ECOSIGG Webinar – Geotechnical Design of Offshore Windfarms – a Holistic Engineering Perspective


15 May, 2024


This webinar has been postponed.

Rescheduled date TBA – expected July/August 2024

This presentation aims to support curious questioning when undertaking geoscience and geotechnics challenges and how understanding the ‘Why’ and ‘What’s Next’ can support improved geo works in projects.

Presented by: Darren Burbury, Head of Geotechnical Design – Projects, Ørsted

Darren, a Chartered Geotechnical Engineer (CEng MICE) and APM-PMQ certified Project Manager, brings over 15 years of expertise in the offshore geotechnical sector. His experience spans from conceptual to FEED and detailed design of both Oil and Gas and offshore wind structures. Darren has spent a year on offshore vessels, conducting site investigations. Since 2017, he has been leading geotechnical and ground engineering teams at Fugro UK and Iberdrola, where he served as the Ground Engineering Lead.
