    This year Offshore WIND Magazine will be looking at the offshore wind hub ports. These are ports that have either become newly established as offshore wind ports or existing ports already serving the industry that grown beyond most people’s expectations in the past seven years. These hubs can be either a single port or a group of neighbouring ports able to provide the complete base support for range of services from project pre-construction surveys to wind farm operation and maintenance.

    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 […]

    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 […]
