Decarbonisation of the energy sector and reduction of carbon emissions sit at the heart of climate change action. We believe that wind power deployments will continue to grow to meet COP targets in the next thirty years.
As well as improved wind turbine technologies, policies to integrate and enable offshore wind will need to harmonise with the ability to deploy and coordinate offshore wind energy.
As well as the design of offshore vessels and asset monitoring solutions, we support research and development to maximise the energy transition outcomes and increase renewable energy uptake and energy efficiency measures.
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.
We provide holistic planning and real-time support to maritime operations with our extensive knowledge of ships, shipping, ports, and port operations backed up by a detailed understanding of the harsh marine environment.
We are leaders in wind farm support vessels and active fender systems for essential maintenance and routine inspections of offshore assets.
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 determine the risk from metocean conditions and environmental effects on assessing the impact of construction traffic on port infrastructure.
Our services include:
We offer several studies to assess renewable resources to determine environmental conditions and the potential environmental impact and assist with permitting requirements. Port assessment studies become more important as the developments move offshore and the turbines become much larger/intricate in design. Our risk-based studies support foundation assessments of turbines, offshore substation transport and installation.
Our services include:
We offer a broad range of surveys, audits and certifications to promote safety and operational efficiency.
We design for superior seakeeping and improved comfort, up to 20% saving in fuel consumption for equivalent vessel payloads, novel hull forms for improved docking performance, minimum weather downtime and high payload capacity.
We acquire and analyse wind, weather and sea state data to inform design, engineering and operational decision making.
Our integrity management services help to determine whether assets are operating as designed, reducing potential downtime and minimizing risk.
