Throughout the lifecycle of an offshore wind farm from the initial scoping to the final decommissioning we support all phases with an extensive range of specialist products and services.
Scoping a suitable site location for an offshore wind farm requires a good understanding of the conditions at the proposed site. Many elements need to be considered to assess the condition and impact on local people and the environment. We assist with early engagement studies to assess the risk from metocean conditions and environmental impacts to assessing the impact of construction traffic on port infrastructure. Our services include:
To assess the renewable resource we offer a number of studies to determine environmental conditions and the potential environmental impact, and assist with permitting requirements. As the developments move offshore and the turbines become much larger/intricate in design, port assessment studies become more important. Our risk based studies support foundation assessments of turbines, offshore substation transport and installation. Our services include:
Installation and construction of offshore wind farms requires a wide range of specialist marine operations. With our extensive knowledge of ships, shipping, ports and port operations backed up by a detailed understanding of the harsh marine environment, BMT provides planning and real time support to such marine operations. Our services include:
For essential maintenance and routine inspections of offshore assets, BMT is a leader in Crew Transfer Vessels (CTV) and active fender systems but we also provide essential integrity monitoring services of these assets whether they are fixed or floating. Our services include:
To improve efficiencies of offshore decommissioning operations, our operational simulation and metocean studies assess the impact of weather downtime and our environment studies support the monitoring of the environment, understanding of environmental impacts and satisfy regulatory obligations. We combine our experience of coastal and marine environments, knowledge of regulatory requirements and project management expertise to support your objectives. Our services include:
