Renewable Energy

The global renewables sector has been growing steadily over the last 10 years, and alongside this, LMC has undertaken a number of projects for different clients including wind farms, tidal energy, and wave energy systems.

With an extensive knowledge of offshore floating structures and platforms obtained from over 30 years in the oil and gas industry, LMC has a wealth of expertise in the delivery of major turnkey oil and gas projects that is readily transferable to the renewables market. 

LMC has worked closely with a number of clients to provide technical assistance and expertise.  Our experienced design and construction teams are involved from the initial Front End Engineering Design (FEED) stage and detailed design through to construction, execution and commissioning.

A global operating presence, regional execution knowledge and a wide network of global vendors provides LMC with an opportunity to supply a cost effective solution.  LMC has strong engineering capabilities supported by the financial capability to execute large Engineering, Procurement, Construction and Installation (EPCI) projects whilst still priding itself on being adaptable and nimble enough to provide innovative and customized solutions for our clients.

LMC has a considerable track record for the provision of both driven pile, and suction pile anchors, with design of these items usually forming part of LMC’s scopes within its Turret Mooring System projects.  LMC has developed mooring systems for offshore renewable projects including floating wind turbines and marine current turbine systems.
