Screw anchoring

Industry Database

Marine South East in the UK is leading a new project investigation screw anchoring for marine energy devices (SAMED).

The project will validate novel anchoring technology using helical screw piles and their installation – namely to negate the need for large expensive installation vessels.

Although widely used on land, screw piles have not yet been developed to meet the requirements of seabed anchoring.

High costs of anchoring and associated installation procedures are one of the major barriers to marine energy deployment.
