Description

The data set represents the construction process of the tower foundation for a 5 MW turbine at the Donghai Bridge Offshore Wind Farm (DBOWF), which is crucial for the establishment and operation of offshore wind energy generation. This process is applicable within the context of the wind farm's life cycle, which includes the phases of design, material procurement, construction, and maintenance of the wind farm infrastructure. The foundation serves as a critical component to ensure the stability and longevity of wind turbines that are to generate electricity for the grid. When using this data set, attention must be paid to the methodological fit for the intended application. Users should ensure that the technological context of the data (offshore wind farm environment in Shanghai's jurisdiction) corresponds to their application's setting. Allocation of environmental impacts should reflect the proportionate share of the foundation construction in the overall life cycle emissions of the wind turbine. Methodological considerations such as the inclusion of sea transportation energy must be accurately applied when assessing the environmental footprint of similar processes. Uncertainty and sensitivity analysis should be reviewed to understand the data's limitations and enable valid comparisons.
