SYNOPSIS Offshore wind farms will contribute significantly to the renewable generation of electricity for the UK. The economic development of windfarms depends, however, on development of efficient solutions to a number of technical issues, one of these being the foundations for the offshore turbines. We review here the results of a recent research programme directed towards the design of caisson foundations as an option for wind turbine foundations. The possibilities of using caissons either in the form of monopod foundations or in the form of a tripod/tetrapod arrangement are discussed.
