    Industry Contribution

    By Jason Deign, for New Energy Update There is one subject that all commentators on the US offshore wind industry agree on: the sector is going to undergo rapid expansion over the next decade.

    Any activity underwater and on or under the seabed in the various offshore energy sectors can usually be prefixed by the word “subsea”. Subsea activities began in earnest in the 30’s and 40’s of the last century with the first offshore oil wells.

    Offshore wind power is about as pure as energy generation gets. However, it is frustrating that statutory regulations in a key area, the deployment of novel vessels that service the industry, muddy these crystal waters. While a wind farm is rooted to the seabed, generating clean energy for decades to come, owners and operators may wish to transport their valuable project experience […]

    Since April 2012 the wind farm support vessel industry has experienced success and failure, both large and small. 2012 will be remembered for the number of new vessels built and delivered to operators, but predominantly it will be the collapse of South Boats Special Projects in the autumn that shook this sector of the industry […]
