Ireland’s Electricity Supply Board (ESB) has issued a contract notice for a qualification system for offshore wind resource and metocean measurement campaigns on sites off the coast of Ireland and the UK.
The wind measurement and metocean data will be utilized to enable offshore structures to be designed against both extreme and fatigue loading conditions as observed on site; enable installation and O&M contractors to plan onsite operations; and inform on turbine and installation vessel selection.
ESB intends to use the Irish Government Procurement portal for this competition. Access to this portal is free of charge.
Interested parties must formally register their expression of interest for this competition on eTenders before they can gain access to the QSQ documentation.
All information relating to and including the qualification questionnaire documents, any clarifications, and changes will be issued/published via this portal, ESB said.
