ASV to Demonstrate Benefits to Offshore Wind

ASV in association with Planet Ocean will hold an Autonomous Surface Vehicle demonstration next week at Stokes Bay Sailing Club, Gosport.

With the demonstration of two vehicles, the C-Worker and C-Enduro, they will showcase the potential uses of ASVs in offshore wind farm industry to reduce the cost of tasks related to the construction, operation and maintenance.

The trial, which will be held on Thursday 18 June 2015, will consist of:

  • Multi-beam system for bathymetric survey on the C-Worker ASV
  • Static display of the C-Enduro ASV fitted with an ADCP, wave sensor, met sensor and PAM system

The project, funded by GROW:OffshoreWind and supported by the Knowledge Transfer Network (KTN), will seek to both identify and demonstrate the applications of USV’s for use in offshore wind farms.

This particular project aims to provide an autonomous system solution that meets the needs and provides value to the offshore renewables industry.
