Offshore wind

We support offshore wind farm developments from initial scoping to final decommissioning.

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.

With our extensive knowledge of ships, shipping, ports and port operations backed up by a detailed understanding of the harsh marine environment, we provide holistic planning and real-time support to maritime operations.

We are leaders in wind farm support vessels and active fender systems for essential maintenance and routine inspections of offshore assets.

Feasibility and financing

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:

  • Vessel Traffic Studies
  • Port Availability
  • Levelised Cost of Energy Analysis

Planning and permitting

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:

  • Environmental EIA's
  • Bird, marine mammal studies
  • Noise impact assessment
  • Grid design/engineering
  • Specialist engineering studies
