Marine Infrastructure

Although largely hidden beneath the sea, marine infrastructure is critical for the effective operation of offshore energy and communication systems. 

These are the platforms, subsea structures, pipelines, moorings and power and telecom cables that underpin activities in oil and gas, offshore wind, wave and tidal energy, and global telecommunications.

Depending on water depth and perceived risk, the use of subsea cables and pipelines can present a set of challenges, sometimes conflicting, that require striking a delicate balance between factors to ensure that such infrastructure is used to its full and intended potential.

We at WSP | Parsons Brinckerhoff possess a unique engineering capability covering geotechnical, electrical (including HVDC) and mechanical aspects of subsea product, with experience in water depths ranging from beach landings and shallow coastal to deep ocean and environments from equatorial to arctic. This blend of capability and experience enables us to offer you cutting edge yet cost-effective solutions.

Offshore wind and marine renewables are relatively young, but rapidly developing, technologies. 

The range of physical environment and technology types embraced by individual projects require a combination of electrical, civil, structural and environmental disciplines, coupled with strengths in health and safety, quality systems, and interface management to ensure effective project delivery.

The breadth and depth of WSP | Parsons Brinckerhoff’s capabilities, twinned with its global footprint, makes us a strong partner for the harnessing of offshore wind and marine renewable energy.
