Stage - Département Mécanique & Structure
|Contract type:||Internship (6 months)|
Ideol, based in La Ciotat (France), was created in 2010 with the aim of developing both technically and economically viable floating foundation solutions for the offshore wind industry. Recipient of numerous innovation and entrepreneurship awards, the company benefits from the support of a large and prestigious panel of public and private investors. Its industry-changing and patented “Damping Pool”® design is compatible with all existing offshore wind turbines. Maximizing local content and optimizing the entire process from construction to installation, maintenance and decommissioning have been the company’s key priorities since day one. Its particularly cost-competitive solution allows for the development of projects without any water depth or soil constraints on sites benefiting from the best available wind resources. Benefiting from the experience and know-how of a fully integrated team of 60 experts and engineers coming from the offshore oil & gas and renewables industries, the company has recently commissioned its first full-scale demonstrator (the FLOATGEN project, which is also France’s first offshore wind turbine) and its second full-scale demonstrator is has been installed off Japan. Ideol is also involved in the French Mediterranean’s first floating offshore wind farm (the EOLMED project) as well as several other floating projects across the world (including Japan’s first commercial floating offshore wind farm in partnership with Acacia Renewables), positioning the company as a leader in this fast-growing and accelerating market.
Topic : Concrete and grout mix study
In the frame of the Wind Farm development and large-scale production, the concrete mix shall be designed according to structure and construction methods requirements.
Concrete mix shall be set depending on cost and material availability. This internship aims to assess the most economical and practical combination of readily available materials to produce a concrete that will satisfy the performance and construction requirements as defined in DNVGL ST C502 and requested by Construction department.
