    When working in the rope access sector of the offshore wind industry it is not only an advantage not to be sea sick but also not to have a fear of heights and confined spaces. The rope access companies not only send their workers offshore in support vessels, but they also require that their workers carry out their […]

    This is key to a responsible realisation of the Energiewende” says Lex Hartman, Director Corporate Development of TSO TenneT. “After all, the German ambition implies building one turbine every day.” The recent Atomausstieg and the subsequent Energiewende brought about a revolution in the German offshore wind sector. Over the next ten years, 13GW of offshore […]

    As West of Duddon Sands, one of the largest European wind farms, nears completion, global maritime services company Royal Boskalis Westminster, the appointed Transport & Installation (T&I) contractor, reflects on this vast project. The T&I contractor faced technical, operational and logistical challenges, particularly because the wind farm was developed at several locations at the same time. However, despite this the […]

    Following Japan s 2011 Fukushima disaster, the German government decided to move away from largely nuclear power and carbon-based energy toward clean renewables such as wind, solar, biomass and hydropower. Offshore wind energy will play a great role in this transition. Last year alone Germany connected 2,282.4MW of new offshore wind power capacity representing 75.4 […]

    With over 70GW planned to come online over the next ten years, offshore wind continues to show exceptional potential and offers some of the best industry growth prospects against a backdrop of maturing onshore developments in the EU. Indeed, the extreme weather conditions offer higher wind speeds, allowing turbines to produce more electricity than onshore, […]

    While the European wind energy association (EWEA) welcomes the landmark agreement achieved at the United Nations Paris Climate Summit – known as COP21 – whereby countries will aim to cut greenhouse gas emissions to a level that will restrict the global average temperature to a rise ‘well below’ a 2°C threshold, the new EWEA Chief […]

    A few months ago Spanish energy giant Iberdrola was crowned the world’s largest wind energy developer with an operating portfolio of more than 14,000MW. The promotion of offshore wind energy is a key platform for Iberdrola’s future growth plans. Iberdrola’s Offshore Business Division, based in Scotland with offices in London, Berlin and Paris, is busy […]

    As an alternative to fossil fuels, wind power is plentiful, renewable, clean and produces no greenhouse gas emissions during operation. The effects on the environment are generally less problematic than those from other power sources. In 2010, wind energy production was more than 2.5 percent of total worldwide electricity usage, and growing rapidly at more […]

    Europe’s love affair with offshore wind may at last be venturing across the Atlantic as the first approved project in the US continues apace. However, the switch to this large-scale renewable energy form – which has the potential to displace both coal and nuclear in providing the bulk of energy consumed by coastal populations – […]

    As part of the Obama Administration’s all-of-the-above strategy to deploy every available source of American energy, the Energy Department today announced $16 million for seventeen projects help sustainably and efficiently capture energy from waves, tides and currents. Together, these projects will increase the power production and reliability of wave and tidal devices and help gather […]

    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 […]

    To quote the British Government: “Enterprise Zones create jobs and boost businesses…. They are great places to do business for both new and expanding firms, benefiting from government backing.” The largest Enterprise Zone in the UK is on the Humber Estuary – both sides, North and South of the River Humber. The zone includes the […]

      Many nations have set challenging targets for renewable energy production and it was in this setting that AMI held the latest global conference on Wind Turbine Blade Manufacture in December 2011 in Dusseldorf, Germany. The UK Minister for the Environment had announced potential plans for another 29,000 wind turbines mainly offshore, and Siemens Energy […]

    There are some blunt facts about wind farm support vessels and some of them do not make pleasant reading. In the past four years there have been many wind farm support vessels built, some for existing companies and some for new companies. At the time they were ordered the prospects looked good with the UK […]

    Giant technology and scaling steps The world’s first close to shore offshore wind farm, Vindeby, built in Denmark in 1991, features 11 semi-standard 450kW Bonus B35/450kW turbines (now Siemens) and is still in operation today. From today’s perspective the look of these tiny three-bladed turbines in shallow water is largely similar with today’s 6 to […]

    It was only 4 years ago at Seawork International 2011 that a completely new class of offshore wind farm vessels was defined when a new vessel, 26 metres long with a 10 metres beam, was named Marineco Shamal and handed over to the owner Marineco. So began the class of 26. As this article is […]

    Scottish homes would see significantly increased electricity bills if it becomes independent, because the country would bear the cost of renewable energy subsidies and infrastructure, which are now distributed across the United Kingdom, Energy Secretary Edward Davey said in his speech held at an energy conference organised by the Scotsman newspaper in Edinburgh. Following is […]

    When the ‘battle of the currents’ ended in the late 19th century with Westinghouse and the AC lobby victorious over Edison’s DC lobby, AC became the dominant means for transmission of electrical power; a method which was to remain dominant for over a century. AC, with the ability for stepping the voltage up or down […]

    In the past 12 months we have seen orders for new Wind Turbine Installation Vessels placed, new builds started and others completed and delivered. These vessels have got bigger and stronger’wlth larger cranes, and higher jacking possibilities. The specifications of almost every dimension have increased. Offshore WIND has spoken to some of the new owners […]
