    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 […]

    Offshore wind farms are built in areas where it has been determined, by monitoring with met masts and floating met buoys, that there is enough of the turbine ‘fuel’ under normal circumstances. It is not just the remote location and water depth that determines that you will not find any offshore wind farms in the […]
