Power

We help inform key decisions on a broad range of climate and environmental issues, working closely with our clients from the early, conceptual stages of the design process through to final details, refinements and monitoring. Two key capabilities drive our success in developing environmental solutions for large-scale energy projects: our technical expertise and our ability to communicate effectively with diverse stakeholders. Combining our experts’ engineering knowledge with insights from owners, community members, government, sustainability specialists and others, we provide guidance on air quality and noise issues that is both workable and technically sound.

Wind - Onshore and Offshore

Our engineers can use advanced tools and proprietary data sets to quantify wind-power potential for offshore and inland sites anywhere on earth. Once you’ve chosen an area for wind harvesting, we offer guidance on siting individual turbines to maximize energy and mitigate noise impacts. Our teams also deliver wind loading analysis and supplementary damping solutions to ensure the performance and reliability of the standing and floating turbines. By employing our detailed wind and wave forecasting tools, RWDI can provide technical support for construction and maintenance of wind-power infrastructure
