Scour around offshore wind turbines remains a big problem, it is caused by the water speeding up around an object, which then gouges out a hole which gets progressively deeper: once the scour hole is deep enough, it will cause the structure to become unstable thereby resulting in the turbine having to be shut down and generation income lost. SPS has a patented device that can completely resolve this issue, has been extensively tested in a flow tank but now requires final field trials.
