    The rise of ocean infrastructure development to tap energy sources such as tides, offshore wind and natural gas will require more pile driving, the practice of pounding long, hollow steel pipes called piles into the ocean floor to support energy turbines and other structures. But pile driving creates loud, underwater booms that can harm fish […]

    Minimising the impacts of underwater noise from piling activities is an important environmental issue. Foundations for offshore wind farms require piling, either heavy piling for monopiles or piling to a lighter degree for jackets. Up to now the offshore wind industry has used hammers to carry out this work. Dutch engineering company Dieseko Group is […]

      For a long time, the development of offshore wind was little contested by other sea uses in the North Sea. Whilst there were objections from fishermen due to limiting their access to sea space and tourism representatives concerned by visual impacts on the coast, few spatial conflicts were the order of the day. But […]

    Cost reduction is the number one priority for the offshore wind industry and operations and maintenance (O&M), representing about a quarter of overall costs, is a significant opportunity for delivering savings. As wind farms get bigger and are built further from shore, in harsher met ocean conditions, the challenge of undertaking O&M will become even greater. To illustrate this challenge, if today’s […]
