    Sometimes, one can be reading a map only to end up in space, which is not a bad thing at all if that is where they want to go. However, we ought to make sure where we are and which road we need to take to reach our “outer space” goals. Luckily, the second day of the Offshore Wind Conference (OWC) in Amsterdam gathered speakers who can guide us through the offshore wind journey.

    Innovative storage system could enable offshore wind farms to deliver power whenever it’s needed.    Written by David L. Chandler, MIT News Offshore wind could provide abundant electricity — but as with solar energy, this power supply can be intermittent and unpredictable. But a new approach from researchers at MIT could mitigate that problem, allowing the […]

    The German Government has set a target to have 6.5 gigawatts of offshore wind power capacity installed by 2020. In Germany the offshore grid network has been beset with problems and delays but is eventually taking off and 2015 will prove to be a major link up year for TenneT the Dutch/German TSO responsible for […]

    There is a lot to write on the role of the Dutch industry concerning the development of offshore wind, both nationally and internationally. However, when it comes to floating wind turbines the list of company names is significantly shorter. With relatively shallow waters it is currently more efficient to install wind turbines on fixed foundations […]

    It was 40 years ago, in the time of the international oil crisis, that some of the first initiatives were undertaken by, what the Dutch now would call, ‘goat-hair wool sock men’ taking a look at wind as a source for generating energy. Reason enough for one of these ‘pioneers’, Chris Westra, to organise a day where the […]

    Executive summary The development of offshore wind represents an interesting technology opportunity for the US. On one hand, offshore wind is a European invention, and early technologies will have to be almost exclusively imported from Europe. On the other, though, the rapid pace of technology development in offshore wind offers significant potential for the US […]

    With the unenviable task of selecting the right boat goes the privilege of leading the designers and yards to build the boats they want. While the hulls are built in different materials and with beam and lengths in various dimensions, the engines, propulsion systems and the fittings remain the choice of the buyer. Even then […]

    Corrosion to many people is the mysterious manifestation that those in the maritime industry all have to deal with at some point or other. It is often misunderstood and because it appears at first sight – in theory at least – a somewhat simple to explain electro-chemical action its understanding and methods of dealing with […]

    Fourteen years ago in 2002 the Sif Group made 80 monopiles for the Horns Rev wind farm off the Danish coast near Esbjerg. These piles were four metres in diameter, the thickness of the steel was five centimetres, and they weighed between 180-230 tonnes depending on their length. In 2016, Offshore WIND was invited to visit the new Sif Group production, storage and load-out terminal built on Maasvlakte 2, the new area of reclaimed land extending the Port of Rotterdam even further out into the Southern part of the North Sea.

    To remind you of just how interesting the first half of 2017 was, the Offshore WIND editorial staff compiled a list of the most read articles published during first six months of this year. Even though the industry has been notably active since the beginning of July as well, our team has decided to set the time parameter to end with 30 June and thus provide a new overview in addition to our annual Offshore ReWIND.

    The bulk of the current plans for European offshore wind power are intended for construction in the relatively shallow North Sea. However, many European countries, including Portugal, do not border shallow seas. Their sea beds have steep descending slopes and much greater water depths not suited for current techniques. If a viable technique can be […]

    The offshore wind industry is very much dictated by large conglomerates. How is it for smaller companies to keep on their feet in this competitive environment when the stakes are not particular in their favour? Offshore WIND visited family-run towage and salvage company Otto Wulf GmbH and heard how the fourth generation Wulf is running […]
