EDITOR’S NOTE

Dear reader, Welcome to the 6th edition of the Offshore WIND International Business Guide. This printed edition, is intended, along with the online edition, to display the offshore wind supply chain companies with all their expertise.

This industry thrives on innovation. In the past five editions we have published many profiles of companies’ innovative services, equipment and ideas in the guide. What was innovative then, is seen today as being tried and tested, exactly what is needed for wind farm installation and maintenance. Please take time to look carefully through this edition for the profile of something that could help you and your company reduce costs, increase efficiency or improve performance. Every company with a profile in the guide is to be found online in the Business Guide section of our news website OffshoreWIND.biz. These online pages contain video clips, photograph galleries and updated information about the companies. You will also see regular news items on the site generated to follow news of the guide’s profiled companies. This printed Offshore WIND International Business Guide is only one part of an inter-connected, multi media base, each part with different properties designed to offer the readers with a wide range of relevant information. The Offshore WIND team takes pride in the

fact that this guide has played some part in the promotion of the innovation. As you are reading this you have probably picked the copy up at one of the many events around Europe, or even further afield, where they are distributed from the media area, or from Offshore WIND’s own stand. We have made sure that they will be available to pick up at as many events possible, where the offshore wind community meets. We would like to thank the participating companies and associations for their contribution and wish all concerned in this vibrant industry a busy and successful year ahead.

DWIA The Danish Wind Industry Association Again, in 2016, Denmark has drawn international attention in regards to offshore wind. The reason for all the attention can be boiled down to the fact that Denmark in the future will be home to the world’s cheapest and most competitive offshore wind farms.

Observers and players in the international offshore wind industry that haven’t learned to pronounce Kriegers Flak and Vesterhav Syd and Vesterhav Nord, better start practicing. The three names encapsulate the transformation of the game of offshore wind energy as the latter two parks are the outcome of the so-called Danish Nearshore Tender (DNS), and currently have the world’s lowest LCOE for offshore wind of 54.50 Euro/MWh. They are followed by the 600MW-tender on Kriegers Flak which has a LCOE of 55.90 Euro/MWh, making it the world’s second cheapest. Both tenders were won by Vattenfall with record low strike prices of 63.80 and 49.90 Euro/MWh for DNS and Kriegers Flak respectively for at CfD-based FIP-model with a subsidy period of 50,000 full load hours corresponding to approximately eleven years.

tender process leading to international interest with strong competition as the result. In total six consortiums were qualified to bid on Kriegers Flak and three on the 350MW DNS tender. On top of that the entire value chain, including some of the most experienced offshore companies, have a base in Denmark, which means that knowledge and products must travel a shorter distance.

All in all, looking back to 2010 the price of offshore wind has been cut in half.

The siting and scope of the tender concept behind the three wind farms is also of relevance to the low LCOE. Especially the DNS turbines are special in regards to siting, as they do not require a transformer offshore due to their four to ten kilometres distance to shore and the grid connection to the point of common coupling onshore is built and owned by the developer. In regards to the concept, they are also special, as Vattenfall – the developer – must offer for sale 20 per cent of the entire project to locals at cost price. Also a loss of value scheme has been put in place meaning that the developer will have to reimburse neighbors who experience a loss of value on their property – if any.

Why is this happening now and in Denmark? Denmark is not the only country experiencing price drops on offshore wind. This is currently also taking place in the Netherlands and we expect it to take place in all countries where tenders are being used. However, it is no coincidence that the major push in mitigating costs is driven from Denmark. The Danish Energy Agency has done a good job in running the whole one-stop-shop

Until now, the Danish wind industry has been involved in all offshore wind farms installed, and the majority of all wind turbines installed offshore are ‘Made in Denmark’. This obviously influences the value chain in a positive way, making all focused on innovation and cost-out-drivers. Both aspects are crucial to bringing down the LCOE.

In the Baltic Sea, Kriegers Flak is also a part of a unique concept, as it will be grid-connected both to Denmark and Germany acting as an interconnector also. Energy agreement is fulfilled It is no secret that another reason for some of the international attention on Denmark this year has been related to the political situation regarding DNS. Already in May the Government announced that it wanted to scrap the projects to save funds. Later – after the tender price was revealed – the political pressure on the Government increased and in November 2016, the DNS were approved along with Kriegers Flak. In 2016 we also saw the conclusion of a 28MW-tender for test turbines to be built off the coast of Nissum Bredning. This project will test new methods and technologies, brought to market primarily by Siemens Wind Power.

Danish Wind Industry Association Rosenørns Allé 9, 5. floor 1970 Frederiksberg C Denmark T +45 (0)33 73 03 30 E danish@windpower.org I www.windpower.org

The conclusion of all the tenders means that the wind energy aspects of the 2012 energy agreement are largely fulfilled, and that Denmark thereby will add additionally 1,378MW to the existing capacity of 1,271MW. The new capacity is enough to power 1.40 million Danish homes. Looking ahead In the coming years, the European offshore market is set to decline slightly in regards to MW installed, bringing about more competition. This will present opportunities for some players and I expect that we will also see more consolidation within the offshore industry as it adjusts to the market size along with market openings such as in the United States.

In light of the development in 2016 and especially the competitive prices on offshore wind seen on Vesterhav Syd and Nord and Kriegers Flak, we have big expectations to the coming years. The development in offshore wind seems to continue to amaze and looking to 2017 and beyond, we have a strong belief in the sustainability of the technology and in the companies active in offshore wind.

11

In June 2016, we saw the Danish government along with eight other countries around the North Sea come together and sign a ‘North Seas Agreement’. The agreement is set to harvest both low hanging fruits in regards to planning, and regulatory barriers thus eliminating e.g. different

demands for blade paint between countries as well as other statutory requirements. The Danish government attaches great relevance to this initiative and will take an active role supporting the messaging of the offshore wind sector. We look forward to the start of the delivery phase of this initiative in 2017. On a larger scale, the agreement will also look into the alignment of tender timelines and other larger, strategic measures that hopefully will help to lower the costs in the industry. We have big expectations towards the agreement and we hope that it will help to add more MW to the pipeline, especially in the North Seas, as we go forward.


JWPA Offshore Wind Power in Japan By the end of 2016 Japan has 64.60MW of offshore wind power, including two 2MW, one 5MW and one 7MW floating wind turbines. Japanese government fixed 36 JPY/kWh of feedin-tariff for offshore wind power in March 2014. This is 1.60 times higher than the onshore tariff 22JPY/kWh. There are further 1,850MW of offshore wind power projects currently under planning. Japanese Ministry of Infrastructure, Land and Tourism (MILT) has amended its Port and Harbor Law to promote offshore wind power development at port associated sea area in May 2017. Most of new projects are fixed foundation type, and they are planned in the port associated area. Several projects shall start construction within a couple of years.

Nearshore at Setana & Sakata The offshore wind power experience in Japan is divided to several stages. Offshore wind in Japan started at nearshore locations. Two 600kW Vestas turbines were installed by the local government at Setana Port in the Hokkaido in December 2003. Another two 2MW Vestas turbines were installed by Sumitomo Trading Co. at Sakata Port in the Yamagata prefecture in January 2004. Sumitomo sold the site to Japan Renewable Energy Co. in April 2015. Dolphin foundations were used for both projects.

12

Commercial nearshore project at Kamisu & recent Akita Port Commercial developers, especially Komatsuzaki Co., the local wind power developer in the Ibaraki prefecture, have taken the initiative in the second stage. Seven 2MW turbines with downwind rotor made by Fuji Heavy Industries (FHI), were installed on monopile foundations at just 50 metres offshore from the coast at Kamisu in the Ibaraki prefecture near Tokyo in February 2010. The wind turbine division of FHI had merged with Hitachi in 2013. This semi-offshore wind farm is famous for surviving the large earthquake and tsunami in March 2011. Eight more 2MW turbines were added nearby in February 2013. The second initiative included a single Siemens 3MW turbine installed on a monopile foundation by Eurus Energy at 100-metre offshore from the Akita port in February 2015. NEDO’s National projects at Choshi and Kitakyusyu The third stage includes four projects by the Japanese government. The first project is by the Japanese New Energy and Industrial technology Development Organisation (NEDO) and uses fixed foundations. Three other projects, by the Japanese Ministry of Environment (MOE), the Ministry of Economy, Trade and Industry (METI) and the NEDO, aim to develop floating offshore wind power projects. The NEDO conducted an Offshore Wind Power Demonstration Project at Choshi and Kitakyusyu. One Mitsubishi 2.40MW turbine was installed on a gravity foundation made by Tokyo Electric Power Co. (TEPCO) at a location three kilometre offshore from Choshi in the Chiba prefecture in March 2013. In another project from Japan Steel Work(JSW) a 2MW

gearless PMSG turbine was installed on a jacket-gravity hybrid foundation by J-Power 1.50 kilometres offshore from Kitakyusyu in the Fukuoka prefecture in June 2013. MOE’s GOTO FOWT project at Kabashima The MOE has conducted a Floating Offshore Wind Turbine Demonstration Project (GOTO FOWT) at Kabashima in the Goto-islands in the Nagasaki prefecture. A FHI second hand 100kW wind turbine was modified by FHI from upwind to downwind rotor. It was anchored one kilometre offshore from Kabashima in July 2012. It operated for about one year and was dismantled in June 2013. Then anemometer tower was installed instead of the wind turbine on its floater. A replacement Hitachi 2MW downwind rotor wind turbine was putted on a spar type floater at the sea by Toda Co. and it was anchored in its place in October 2013. The electricity produced by this wind turbine was used for producing hydrogen in 2015. The hydrogen was fed for fuel cells which motored the maintenance boat. This project finished in FY2015. Then, the 2MW floating turbine was transferred from MOE to Goto city. It was moved to the neighbor Fukue island and re-connected to the grid line in March 2016. It got the first approval of selling its electricity as offshore wind power PPA price 36JPY/kWh. It will be kept until 2019. METI’s Fukushima FORWARD project The METI has conducted a Floating Offshore Wind Farm Demonstration Project (Fukushima FORWARD) in the Fukushima prefecture. One Hitachi 2MW downwind rotor wind turbine was anchored on a three-column, semi-sub type floater about 20 kilometre offshore from Iwaki in the Fukushima prefecture in December 2013. The substation is anchored on a spar type floater next to the 2MW floating turbine. A Mitsubishi 7MW hydraulic drive turbine was installed on a V shape, semi-sub type floater at the Onahama Port quay in summer in 2015. Then, it was carried to 20 kilometre offshore and was anchored in September in 2015. A Hitachi 5MW downwind rotor wind turbine on a advanced compressed spar type floater was carried from Dockyard in Osaka bay to Fukushima in May and was anchored in August in 2016. The full 14MW shall be in operation at the end of

2016. The NEDO has started a new Advanced Floating Offshore Wind Turbine Demonstration Project in autumn 2014. Their intentions are to build several floating offshore turbines and achieve cost reduction applying innovative technologies worldwide by 2017. NEDO conducted feasibility study in 2015. NEDO decided in 2016 to build two floating wind turbines about 7MW in total using French IDEOL’s moonpool type floater at Kita-kyushu offshore.

Remaining obstacles The business risk became low at port associated area, because of the law amendment by MILT. Several Japanese companies, such as Penta Ocean Construction Co. intend to build or rent a jack-up ship now. Therefore, offshore wind power development in Japan has moved slowly to realise now.

Commercial projects under planning The fourth stage is led by commercial projects. 15 projects, representing in total 1,845MW, are now under development. Most of the commercial projects will use fixed foundations. One

20MW project at Goto city is floating type. Ten of these projects, with a total of 800MW, will be installed near the port where it is easy to get development permission and take the fishermen’s rights into consideration. The other four projects, with a total of 1,035MW, will be located out of port area. Several biddings were conducted by local governments in 2015 and 2016.


NWEA Netherlands Wind Energy Association The Netherlands Wind Energy Association (NWEA) is the Dutch sector association working to increase sustainable wind energy on land and at sea. NWEA unites the wind sector in the Netherlands and accelerates the transition towards a renewable energy supply by spurring businesses and governments to invest in wind energy.

NWEA actively promotes the utilisation of wind power in the Netherlands, on land and offshore. NWEA initiates and supports policy change to optimise wind energy deployment both onshore and offshore. Among the over 300 members of NWEA are developers of wind farms, owners of wind turbines, manufacturers, constructors, research institutes, electricity providers, consultants and maintenance companies. The activities of NWEA are aimed mainly at the national government. NWEA is a member of WindEurope, the European wind energy association, and the Dutch Association of Sustainable Energy (NVDE). Offshore wind: status and outlook for the Netherlands The Netherlands was one of the first countries in the world to complete offshore wind farms. The first two, Egmond aan Zee (2007) and Prinses Amalia (2008), have a total capacity of 228MW. It took a number of years to expand capacity. This was reached in September 2015 with the project Luchterduinen. It comprises of 43 turbines with a combined capacity of 129MW. Gemini, 85kilometres north of the Netherlands, will become fully operational in 2017 with an installed capacity of 600MW. Furthermore the ‘in-shore’ project of ‘Westermeerwind’ was realised in 2016 in the IJsselmeer lake and has a capacity of 100MW.

14

In September 2013 the ‘Energy Agreement for Sustainable Growth’ was agreed upon by the Dutch Government, the Dutch industry association, employers, trade unions and NGOs. In this agreement the renewable energy target for the Netherlands is set at 14 per cent for 2020 and 16 per cent in 2023 (currently about six per cent). A substantial role is attributed to offshore wind. Through the Energy Agreement 700MW of offshore wind will be added yearly for five consecutive years (first tender end of 2015). In 2015 a new law for offshore wind energy was agreed by the Dutch Parliament which regulates the agreements made for offshore wind energy in the Energy Agreement.

In 2016 the first tender was held. The subsidy and permits for the Borssele Wind Farm Sites I and II were awarded to DONG Energy for a record price excluding transmission costs of 72.70 euros per MWh. These two sites are expected to be completed in mid-2020 and are to be built more than 22 kilometres off the coast of the province of Zeeland. The Dutch government chose for a new tender system with plots wherein the winner with the lowest MWh price will be granted both the concession to build as well as a ‘SDE+’ subsidy for 15 years. The roll-out scheme for offshore wind will be regulated in the ‘The Wind Energy Roadmap’ which is set by the Minister of Economic Affairs. In this roadmap a total of 3,500MW will be tendered to become operational in 2023. The grid to the shore including the transformer stations will be built by TenneT. The complete operation demands a tremendous amount of work. NWEA will continue to assist its members and the government to realise these ambitions throughout 2017.

RenewableUK The United Kingdom remains the world leader on the offshore wind stage with over 5GW of operational capacity. The sector is also looking very active in every phase of the development process: operational capacity is increasing, construction is ramping up, and projects are being approved by the planning system. All of this ensures that the sector has a bright future.

Between June 2015 and June 2016 four offshore wind farms: Humber Gateway, Kentish Flats Extension, Westermost Rough and the Levenmouth demonstration turbine, have become operational, increasing the installed capacity and making wind power an increasingly reliable source of energy for the country.

renewables remain one of the three main pillars of the United Kingdom’s future energy system, along with gas and nuclear. To this end, the offshore wind sector is eager to demonstrate the significant steps it has taken in the last couple of years, and prove its competitiveness against other energy sources.

With the closure of the Renewables Obligation fast approaching in March 2017, construction is also picking up, with projects like Rampion and Race Bank having started offshore operations. These are accompanied by the first projects building out under the Final Investment Decision (FID) Enabling scheme, i.e. Burbo Bank Extension and Dudgeon. These projects will add about 1.60GW of capacity, further beefing up deployment in United Kingdom waters.

The elephant in the room is clearly represented by Brexit. Since the vote in June 2016, the policy environment has been overhauled both at the national and at the European level. A new Prime Minister has come in, bringing the natural uncertainty that accompanies every new administration. The Committee on Climate Change has indicated a need for Government to step up its actions to meet the forth and the fifth Carbon Budgets. Uncertainty at the national level is paired with uncertainty at the European level, which is casting a shadow on every government commitment and on the overall confidence of foreign investors.

On the planning side, a huge leap forward was taken with the approval of Dogger Bank Teesside A&B; its capacity of 2.40GW is the largest consented wind farm in the world. However, last year also had its downsides with the refusal of Navitus Bay and three major Scottish projects being successfully challenged at Judicial Review. The pipeline of projects nevertheless remains considerable, with more than 12GW of consented offshore wind farms ready to secure investment and enter construction. The fierce competition for support will no doubt lead to increased cost reduction, as recently signalled by increased market competitiveness in other European countries, such as the Netherlands.

16

The main challenge for the offshore sector remains obtaining the political certainty and clarity necessary to give the necessary confidence to press ahead with investments. In November 2015 Amber Rudd, Secretary of State for Energy and Climate Change at the time, indicated there would be three Contracts for Difference (CfD) allocation rounds under this Parliament. A draft budget notice for a CfD allocation round to be held in April 2017 has now been published by the new Department for Business, Energy and Industrial Strategy (BEIS). The outlook for the sector remains therefore positive; the new Conservative Government has indicated that

In these fluid times, RenewableUK remains a strong and clear advocate for its members before government and the wider public. Next year’s dates for the calendar are also set for the sixth and seventh June. RenewableUK and WindEurope are joining forces to host Offshore Wind Energy 2017. This will be the largest offshore wind conference in the industry’s history, attracting more than 10,000 professionals and showcasing over 500 exhibitors from all sectors of the offshore wind industry.

NORWEA Wind Wave Tidal Norway lacks a domestic market for offshore wind, at the same time Norwegian companies have market shares in the North Sea market. The hope is that a demonstrator in Norwegian waters will power more companies onto the international scene

Renewables target Norway has set a renewable energy target of 67.50 per cent of total energy use by 2020. New renewable electricity production is supported through the el-certificate scheme. The scheme is a co-operative effort between Norway and Sweden to increase production from renewable capacity by 28.40TWh by 2020 (2021 for Norwegian projects). Of the total capacity in the system, Norway is financing 13.20TWh, and Sweden the remaining 15.20TWh. This means Norway will achieve 13.20TWh towards its renewables target, irrespective of where the physical installations are built. The certificates are non-technology or country specific, and tradeable on a common exchange. Certificates are issued by the state directly to producers of new renewable electricity, and traded on an open market. From 2021, Norwegian projects will no longer be eligible for elcertificates. Sweden continues with the scheme through to 2030 with an additional 18TWh target. Which mechanisms will be promoting the construction of new renewable capacity in Norway post 2020 is so-far unknown.

The Norwegian offshore wind market There are no commercial offshore wind farms in operation or under construction in Norway. Since the deployment of the 2.30MW HyWind I floating demonstrator there has been talks of moving the installation to a petro-maritime facility for electrification trials. There are two other 10MW demonstrator concessions in the waters around HyWind, near Karmøy in Rogaland. There is a 10MW demonstrator concession for floating installations near Stadt in Sogn og Fjordane. Additionally, the company Vestavind Offshore owns a 350MW commercial offshore wind concession in the Norwegian Sea, named Havsul I. Final concession for Havsul I was given in September 2009. Recently, we have seen renewed activity around Havsul I. Politically, the concern for offshore wind has kicked up with increased insecurity in the national oil and gas sector. Parliament has recently asked that the government “in the 2018 budget at the latest, present a strategy for commercial development of floating wind mills, which can contribute to profitable electrification of the Norwegian shelf”.

Previously parliament has asked for a support scheme for demonstrator projects by 2017, and a strategy for demonstrator projects which was to be delivered in 2016, which was cancelled. Norway in offshore wind While there is no domestic market for offshore wind, both Statoil and Statkraft are Norwegian companies with experience in developing and operating offshore wind projects. Statkraft has announced that it will not be engaging in new offshore wind projects after the completion of the 400MW Dudgeon project it co-owns with Statoil. Statoil and Statkraft also developed and built the 317MW Sheringham Shoal project, for which Statoil will be taking over the operation from 2017. Additionally, Statoil is buying into Statkraft’s share of the Dogger Bank projects, leaving Statoil with a potential 50 per cent stake. Simultaneously, Statoil are continuing the development of the spar-floating concept HyWind. The company is in the process of deploying the second demonstrator, anchoring five 6MW turbines in 100-metres depth at the HyWind Scotland site north-east of Aberdeen in the North Sea. Moreover, Norwegian companies are represented in the market for – among other – jack-ups for installation, crane and access equipment, production planning and control software as well as weather forecasting. However, many relevant Norwegian companies remain outside the international offshore wind market – and NORWEA and others are calling for the rapid realisation of a demonstrator project in Norwegian waters.

Syndicat des Énergies Renouvelables French Renewable Energy Association The Syndicat des énergies renouvelables (SER) is the main French industrial association for renewable energy, and brings together all sectors in this field: wood and biomass, biofuels, marine renewables energies, wind energy, geothermic energy, hydroelectricity, solar thermal and photovoltaic energy. The activities of the SER are focused on the development of renewable energy in France, and on the promotion of the interests of the industrialists and professionals of the sector. The wind commission of the SER gather about 200 companies. In constant relation with the state and the administrations, they actively participate in the elaboration of the positions of the offshore wind sector in France.

French offshore wind objectives The French energy transition law (2015) and connected regulatory texts has set a range of targets for the development of offshore wind in France: by 2023, for fixed offshore wind, France should have installed the 3,000MW already assigned by the two firsts tenders, and launched new calls for tenders for a maximum of 6,000MW capacity. For floating offshore wind, new call for tenders should be launched in the coming years following the four pilot projects (of 24MW each) under development since the fall 2016. The French Renewable Energy Association asks for even more ambitious targets i.e 15,000MW of fixed offshore wind and 6,000MW of floating offshore wind by 2030. Fixed offshore wind market is expanding in France After the two first tenders (2010 and 2012) concerning six wind farms of 500MW each, the French government has selected in 2016 two new areas, one on the Atlantic coast and the other on the Channel - North Sea coast.

20

Evolution of the tender procedure for fixed offshore wind With the latest tender, the authorities and professionals are experimenting a new competition procedure that should enable cost reductions. The first stage of this process consists in the selection of candidates based on their financial and technical capabilities. The specifications of the tender is to be written during a competitive dialogue between the selected candidates and the government in a second stage. At the same time, environmental studies are conducted in the area of the future wind farms. France is a pioneer market in floating offshore wind With the attribution of four pilot projects in floating offshore wind and many companies entering the market, France is one of the leading country in the development and installation of this technology.

A growing industry As the installed capacity of onshore wind increases and the industrial phase of the offshore wind projects shows up, the French wind industry is growing. Onshore and offshore wind industry represent more than 18,000 direct and indirect jobs in more than 600 companies in both onshore and offshore wind. Supported by regional clusters and by the national initiative Windustry France (led by the SER and supported by the State), the French industry is getting more involved in the wind sector. Moving on The offshore wind and marine renewable energy working group of the French Renewable Energy Association are actively participating in the design of the legislative and regulatory framework for the offshore wind sector. In constant contact with political authorities, ministerial cabinets, the administration and the potentials stakeholders, the SER is promoting the interest of its members on a wide range of specialties such as economic, industrials, politics or legal issues.

European Wind Energy Masters The offshore wind energy market continues to make vast reductions in the cost of energy stemming from past experiences as well as new technologies. Students of the European Wind Energy Masters (EWEM) complete challenging and innovative master’s theses every year, often looking to drive down the cost of offshore wind energy even further. EWEM students, who can specialise in offshore engineering, wind physics, electrical power systems, and rotor design, have identified the most promising areas for advancement in the offshore industry.

Students in the offshore engineering track have identified floating turbines, larger wind turbines, and lifetime extension as the main areas for research and innovation. Floating wind turbines present their own unique challenges related to installation, anchoring, and complex motion. With a large capital investment for offshore wind farms, the concept of lifetime extension becomes even more attractive. Currently, students are looking for ways to record the fatigue history which can be used to make safe and economical decisions about the lifespan of wind turbines. The field of wind energy reaches far beyond the individual turbine. Wind physics students adapt new wind farm designs to a variety of environments and terrain. In an offshore wind turbine farm, the effect of wakes take longer to break down due to decreased turbulence. This creates a challenge in wind farm controls. Research is focusing on minimising the effect on turbines downstream while maximising power output, leading to more efficient turbine and farm design.

22

Electrical power system students are dealing with the electrical challenges associated with moving farms further offshore. As turbine designs grow in size and increase in distance offshore, the transmission capacity also increases. With the increased energy production, the appropriate infrastructure must also be implemented to accommodate

the energy generated. This is one of the major challenges EWEM students face in offshore electrical design. One of the main challenges faced by the students in the rotor design track is the cubic increase in rotor blade mass. As rotor size increases, energy pay off only increases by a squared factor. With wind turbines reaching the 10MW size, new blade designs and materials will be necessary to reduce weight. Research is being conducted on the structural layout and material composition of the blades. Once designed, testing of new blade concepts moves research towards industrial readiness. New innovations in maintenance, such as robotic inspections, create opportunities to lower the cost of O&M. These blades propose a new economic promise which is of great interest to the wind energy industry. To solve the economic challenge of creating cost effective large scale energy generation, the wind industry must continue to develop globally. EWEM prides itself in being an international program with students coming from 43 different countries around the world. Working with the international community will not only open new markets for development, but it will pull resources from across the globe to solve the challenges associated with transforming the energy system. Offshore students expect the United States of America and Japanese markets to demand floating technology and expect to rely on Europe’s expertise to assist increasing capacity.

EWEM students receive a presentation from Nikolaj Kruppa of DONG Energy

Abeking & Rasmussen Schiffs - und Yachtwerft SE Abeking & Rasmussen (A&R) is a pioneering shipyard in Germany with high reputation for quality and innovation for naval and commercial vessels since 1907. Today the company delivers to a critical and sophisticated clientele all over the world. The modern, compact shipyard is independent of weather, with sheds made for ships of over 125 metres length, which can be launched resp. taken ashore via synchrolift. The revolutionary SWATH@A&R concept presents a superior alternative to conventional hull forms due to its unique seakeeping and maneuvering in rough sea for numerous applications.

The shipyard Abeking & Rasmussen has developed a unique ship design which offers extraordinary seaworthiness and low sea response motions in the same range as vessels which are at least three times larger – the SWATH@A&R® technology. The 25-metre SWATH@A&R® Crew Transfer Vessel is designed to be the final link in the logistic chain for maintenance between shore and offshore wind turbines. The first of class was delivered to the German company BARD Engineering in 2010 and increased the accessibility of wind energy plants, offering safe transfer of service personnel both, during sailing and while stepping over to the plant. This must be done in a safe, economic and reliable way.

The 25-metre SWATH@A&R® Crew Transfer Vessel will allow access to offshore wind turbines with a significant wave height of up to 2.50 metres. The concept of the crew transfer vessel allows easy adaptation to various tasks in offshore wind farms. The main role is transfer of service personnel and for this task the vessel offers a spacious mess room. Storage facilities for components and spare parts are available as well as space for modules of TEU size such as firefighting monitor, oil spill equipment, ROV base etc. The SWATH@A&R design also allows for comfortable accommodation of service technicians at sea on smaller vessels due to its unique seakeeping

capabilities. Thus, A&R is able to close the gap between conventional CTVs and large SOVs. Designs for ten service technicians on a 27-metre SWATH@A&R which can still land at the offshore installations directly are available, spacious accommodations on 40-metre vessels with DP2-capabilities and access systems as well as 60-metre SWATH for 60 persons on board as an alternative to traditional SOV designs.

It’s been an impressive year for AMC with the completion of its most impressive contract yet – four sister vessels built almost concurrently. All have been engineered to be essentially similar, allowing completely interchangeable crewing. AMC’s advanced crew transfer vessels can achieve up to 28 knots, with excellent sea-keeping qualities and the ability to remain at sea for extended periods.

SES – AMC added a new surface effect ship (SES) design to its portfolio geared towards the crew transfer vessel market and designed by Norway’s Espeland and Skomedal Naval Architects (ESNA). The new ESNA Tern SES CTV is a next generation high performance crew transfer vessel, offering turbine access in up to 2.50-metre waves, with a maximum speed above 40 knots and greatly reduced speed loss in high seas. The vessel’s tern hull has an inflated rubber bag in the stern which

acts as an air cushion that lifts up to 80 per cent of the vessel weight, reducing resistance and allowing the vessel to travel at higher speeds. Bespoke – AMC made waves with the Turbine Transfers vessel Trearddur Bay. This CTV catamaran was the first to be equipped with Voith’s linear jet propulsion system, recording speeds of 32 knots. AMC worked closely with client and designer to create this first in class unique vessel. Showcasing their ability to work with new innovation, creating bespoke design solutions. AMC has the capacity to deliver projects from large commercial workboats right through to bespoke vessels and marine projects.

Bibby Marine Services is currently building Bibby WaveMaster 1, the first in a new generation of Service Operations Vessels serving the needs of Offshore Windfarm operators. Due for completion in August 2017 this speculatively built vessel represents the first significant investment by Bibby into the marine renewables sector. Bibby are delighted to be working with Damen, one of the great names in shipping. Damen and Bibby are a similar size, both have a strong marine heritage and, almost uniquely are both family owned. Both companies focus on innovation and have similar corporate values. A collaborative approach was adopted in the design process. Bibby added our input about what we felt the customers’ requirements

were and Damen modified the vessel to suit our suggestions, particularly the internal layout, work flows and the need for a ‘step less’ approach. Additional customer feedback was then incorporated in the final design. Designed to handle well in excess of 2.50-metre significant wave heights, the Bibby WaveMaster 1 is fully adapted to cope with harsh North Sea conditions and crew comfort has been given the highest priority. Some of the features are: • unique hull form and DP2 ensure max stability and operability in severe sea states; • smart logistics/personnel workflows with step-less capability; • unique fuel saving dual engine power configuration for lower operating costs; • multi- stop elevator, height adjustable

• •

pedestal and UpTime W2W gangway for max access; daughter craft, CTV landings/ refueling, and helideck for increased access and max flexibility; large covered/air conditioned six container warehouse, large deck area, ten containers with crane; 60 ensuite cabins, numerous offices and leisure facilities. Max 90 pax.; comfort Class 2 accommodation.

Bibby WaveMaster 1 is much more than a vessel it is a ‘total access and accommodation’ solution. The development of this vessel started from scratch as opposed to being an evolution of an existing design. Great care has been taken over the design period to incorporate customer needs to ensure suitability to the tasks for which it has been designed.

Three of our recent projects EMAS AMC (Chiyoda) contracted

Blue Offshore has supported Subsea 7 with the installation of a flexible pipe

for Statoil’s Oseberg Delta 2 project by providing a modular system, consisting of a 23 metres OD – 8 metres height – 5,000 tonnes basket carousel, loading tower and associated equipment, mobilised on Subsea 7’s flexlay vessel the Normand Oceanic. This flexible pipe had a weight of 355kg/m. Several years Blue Offshore assisted Norddeutsche Seekabelwerke (NSW) with its Baltic 2 Offshore Wind Farm project. Our provided cable installation equipment was mobilised onto the DP2 vessel MV Aura and included a 23 metre OD basket carousel, loading tower and other associated equipment for cable loading, cable transport and operational assistance during cable installation.

The grillage is strong enough to support lifting the basket carousel in one lift during (de)mobilisations. The 15 metres OD basket carousel loaded with product up to a total loaded product weight of 1,000 tonnes can be lifted with one single lift. Our basket carousels are Lloyds’ Register certified. The basket carousels can be converted into reel type carousels.

Blue Offshore to provide a rental 15 metres OD basket carousel, able to lift 1,000 tonnes of umbilicals, and related equipment. The equipment was used for the transportation, storage and installation of offshore umbilicals for Woodside’s Julimar Development Project. Installation took place with EMAS’ DP3 pipelay vessel Lewek Constellation. This project is a perfect example of the modularity of Blue Offshore’s equipment. Our 23 metres OD – 8 metres height basket carousel has been reduced to 15 metres OD – 4 metres height. We also provided support with (de)mobilisation, commissioning, umbilicals loading and offshore umbilicals installation.

Our basket carousels have a modular design for variable product carrying capacities, starting from 1,000 tonnes up to 5,000 tonnes. The outer diameters of the basket carousels are 15 metres, 18 metres and 23 metres. The basket carousels have an integrated grillage for sheerleg lifting or SPMT (de)mobilisation.

Special depth measurements are done allowing clients to effectively manage working processes like dredging-, port-and-water-way-maintenance and replenishment work. The vessels can be deployed to survey the water column and the sea bed, using deck equipment, such as an A-frame, winch and crane, CDT and density sensors can be lowered down to the bed in a controlled manner. The crew tender vessels operate 24 hours a day, seven days a week and sail

back and forth between dry land and working areas like platforms, wind farms and trailing suction hopper dredgers. With room for up to twelve persons on board, some of the vessels transport not only people but also provisions, packages and materials. The fleet operates in waves up to five metres in height, sailing at a speed of 20 knots an hour. At the moment Braveheart is building a new vessel Javelin 25.25 completion June 2017.

The German port of Cuxhaven epitomises the combination of a production site and an installation, service and maintenance port for the offshore business. Various skills required to set up and expand or maintain wind farms out at sea and generate clean energy are available at the offshore base port in the German state of Lower Saxony. Port logistics company with a wide range of services for the wind power sector The wind power sector can make full use of the expertise and capacity at the Cuxport multi-purpose terminal when seeking logistical support for these projects. The port logistics company has increasingly geared itself to meet the differing demands of this young market sector since 2007. Many customers are already using the services at Cuxport – in

Able to handle heavy loads As wind turbines are continually becoming larger, Cuxport has to move enormous weights if tower sections or foundation structures are to be transported. The company not only has a roadway capable of handling heavy loads, which runs from the manufacturers’ production sites to Cuxport, but also a heavy-duty platform for transhipment purposes.

provider offers the necessary flexibility and the relevant transhipment equipment both for services in the installation field and when providing supplies for production processes. The trend towards larger wind turbines and the use of modern installation vessels from the edge of the quay have not only triggered a reassessment of whether to complete assembly processes out at sea or on dry land, but also induced manufacturers of tower sections or foundational structures, which used to mainly produce their goods at hinterland destinations, to operate their factories very close to the sea.

Flexible Cuxport can point to many years of experience in the project business – not least based on its original design as a heavy goods terminal. The port logistics

Cuxport is repeatedly able to introduce its existing logistics expertise in projects, which accompany the offshore wind power industry in all its varied facets. For example, Cuxport organises the

particular the terminal’s ability to handle very heavy loads and the extremely strong RoRo ramps at the deep-water berths.


transportation and storage of grout in big bags. This cement-like filling material is used for turbines at offshore wind farms to secure transition pieces and monopiles.

Planning approval for a berth adjacent to the heavy-duty platform was completed this year. This will provide another 180 metres of quay space at Cuxport, hopefully from 2017 onwards, and will be able to store loads weighing up to 20 tonnes per square metre. Once it has been completed, the terminal operator will be able to offer its customers in the offshore sector another 85,000 square metres of business space.

The construction of additional capacity will be one of the most important tasks at Cuxport in the near future, so that the company can meet the growing challenges of the offshore business successfully in future too.

53

Forward-looking Proximity to the wind park projects, which have already been completed and are being planned in the German Bight and the surrounding area, make Cuxhaven generally suitable to play a role in the service and maintenance business – and Cuxport in particular, with its capacity to handle special tasks. In the course of the establishment and expansion of offshore wind farms, safeguarding the operations of the wind turbines, which have been installed out at sea and are subject to extreme weather conditions, will increasingly become the focus of attention during the next few years.

The advantage of being very close to the wind farms and access to the North Sea without any locks or reliance on tides were enough to persuade one provider of independent solutions for the offshore wind power industry; it has set up its business at the SteubenhĂśft Terminal, which belongs to Cuxport GmbH.

Damen Offshore Wind The best tools at sea Damen Offshore Wind Vessels aim to support energy companies and offshore contractors at every stage of a wind farm’s lifecycle: development, installation, operations and maintenance. Damen’s offshore wind portfolio includes a wide range of offshore wind related vessels, including supply and transfer vessels, operations & maintenance ships, accommodation barges, walk to work vessels, cable layers, workboats, heavy-lift ships and jack-ups. Damen has been working hard to introduce new designs, showing that they mean to remain a step ahead in terms of providing the right solutions to the market.

Damen Service Operations Vessel (SOV) Damen Shipyards’ SOV is a walk-to-work vessel able to stay at sea for one month supporting wind turbine operations, pro­ viding a powerful alternative to the rapidly maturing offshore renewables energy market. The SOV is the result of extensive consultation with vessel operators, field developers and turbine makers, plus two years of design development. The vessel will provide on-site work and storage facilities, plus accommodation for 40 turbine maintenance personnel and 20 crew members for periods of

up to one month. At distances greater than 30 nautical miles, the time taken to transfer maintenance crew from shore to turbine and back again everyday starts to become critical, with the longer travel time having a large impact on the overall cost of the operation. Damen has been able to design a vessel for sustained operations at sea that could guarantee 80 per cent availability working with wave heights of up to three metres Hs. This will significantly reduce costs and increase efficiency in the Central North Sea, an area considered to be the ‘worst case’ area for support vessel deployment.

DG JACK Damen and GustoMSC have announced the forming of a collaboration in order to produce a range of self-propelled and non-self-propelled jack-up platforms – the DG JACK range. The collaboration will be based on GustoMSC’s strong track record in the design of jack-ups and provision of jacking systems, combined with Damen’s extensive experience in shipbuilding and vessel optimisation, financing and worldwide after-sales services. The DG JACK range features three jack-ups, the DG JACK 6136 P, 7140P


Damen’s R&D department invested a great deal of time improving the design of a conventional catamaran so that the FCS 2610 could achieve its unrivalled seakeeping behaviour at high speeds. The Sea Axe hull shape, along with the raised deck of the design, mean that the vessel can operate at these speeds in higher sea states, greatly extending the operating window.

and 5632P, with the capability to operate at 60, 80 and 55 metres of water depth respectively. The joint Damen and GustoMSC team is fully aligned to provide an optimised solution covering the complete lifecycle of the units, including the design, construction and delivery as well as services during operational life.

FCS 2610 Damen’s Fast Crew Supplier (FCS) 2610 has been hailed as a ‘game-changer’ in the industry. The vessel is a catamaran version of the renowned Sea Axe. Its Twin Axe hull form ensures the fast, comfortable and, most importantly of all, safe transfer of passengers and goods to offshore locations.

Comfort is additionally improved by the positioning of the superstructure to the aft of the vessel. The vessel design offers a large working deck area with extensive cargo capacity, for the highest levels of workability. The FCS 2610 is extremely versatile, as can be seen by the recent applications of the vessel across the spectrum of the offshore industries.

59

The decision to partner up to deliver the DG JACK was based on extensive feedback from the market. Industry trends towards larger turbine capacity demonstrate the need for such a

range. At the same time, operational experience to date has shown the requirement for jack-up intervention. And, with operational life of a wind farm being between 20 and 25 years, the cases for JACK is clear.

The Twin Axe hull of the vessel works by significantly reducing the amount of resistance the vessel encounters in the water whilst underway. In addition to providing comfortable transportation, this confers on the vessel the additional benefit of considerably improved fuel efficiency.

The company offers a modern fleet operated by an experienced and dedicated crew along with safe, efficient marine operations with highest HSEQ standards.

Fred. Olsen Windcarrier offers wideranging, flexible and bespoke solutions through a single contract, working together with related company Global Wind Service.

Fred. Olsen Windcarrier Fred. Olsens gate 2, P.O. Box 581 0152 Oslo

As well as having two supreme and flexible jack-up installation vessels in Brave Tern and Bold Tern, the company provides specialist engineering and project management expertise, around 600 of the industry’s most experienced technicians, a fleet of high performance service vessels and a reputation for getting the job done safely, efficiently and reliably.

Norway T +47 (0)22 34 10 00 F +47 (0)22 34 11 82 E info@windcarrier.com I www.windcarrier.com Fred. Olsen Windcarrier Contact: Martin Degen Commercial Manager

Built on 169 years of offshore and marine experience, Fred. Olsen Windcarrier was established in 2008. Fred. Olsen Windcarrier also has a fleet of crew transfer vessels (CTVs). The Bayard class vessels are specially designed, Norwegian built, Danish flagged and classed by DNVGL ensuring that Fred. Olsen Windcarrier fulfils future regulatory and market requirements for quality shipping with proper certification. Both Tern vessels underwent upgrades during 2016. The upgrades included extending the jacking legs by 14 metres, making the legs 92.40 metres long. The cranes were prepared for a boom extension of up to 20 metres. This included both an insert piece for the crane boom and an extension of the A-frame. The lifting height is now 120 metres from the main deck.

Meanwhile, three of Fred. Olsen Windcarrier’s Bayard vessels have been employed in United Kingdom waters at Walney 1+2 offshore wind farm, where they will continue working on O&M for the duration of their three year contract. The rest of the CTV fleet have been employed by MHI Vestas, Siemens, A2Sea, Ballast Nedam and ENBW in Belgium, Denmark and out of German ports to both the North Sea and the Baltic Sea.

Over the last two years, Fred. Olsen Windcarrier has undertaken several short O&M fast track projects across numerous locations in Germany and the UK, with project assignment to exe­cution within a short timeframe. These projects were carried out smoothly and efficiently. In 2015, Bold Tern and Brave Tern transported and installed 75 towers and nacelles and 22 rotor stars of the 80 AREVA 5MW turbines at the Global Tech I offshore wind farm, completing the project on schedule within eight months. The flexibility of the vessels was key to achieving the operational target – and included a record performance in the transportation and installation of eight turbines in one week, including ten hours transfer time each way to the wind farm.

69

One of the top highlights to date has been the installation on the Block Island Offshore Wind Farm – the first offshore wind farm to ever be installed in United States waters. Fred. Olsen Windcarrier’s scope of work included the transportation

of five GE nacelles across the Atlantic and installation of the complete Haliade 1506MW turbines at Block Island. We worked closely with American companies to deliver the project, in particular with United States flagged feeder barges for the transportation of towers and blades from shore. The project was safely completed in just over 70 days, ahead of schedule.

we make our safety performance visible through transparent reporting. Continuous innovation To better serve our clients, we continuously develop new techniques, methods and tools in our own Research and Development department. This approach has made us a competitive bidder and cost-efficient partner. We often are the first in the world to propose new solutions with net gain in safety, working time and accuracy. As an example, among many others, GeoSea developed several seabed templates, for accurate installation of piles for jacket foundation of different sizes and configurations. Certified quality Our plant, platforms and vessels may

be huge and the offshore constructions we build may be enormous, but the tolerances we respect, the accuracy we aim at and the precision of our realisations are unequalled. An offshore wind turbine tower may rise to the skies but its foundations are piled at vertical and relative tolerances measured in millimetres. This quality is guaranteed by numerous certificates, incl. ISO 9001, VCA** and OHSAS 18001.

Offshore wind installation cranes The product range for customised offshore wind installation cranes is a result of many years of design and operational experience and based on the company’s drive to design and deliver new solutions that add value to the market’s existing technologies. The customised crane range includes pedestal cranes and mast cranes for both jack-up vessels and floating vessels. The lifting capacity of these cranes ranges up to 5,000mt. In addition to the low construction weight, small footprint and minor tail swing of the existing Huisman cranes, available value adding features are a fully electric variable frequency drive system, the extensive lifting height, the small operational minimum radius and the

possibility to install the crane around the leg of a jack-up vessel. As an example of the success of this new range of wind turbine installation cranes, Huisman was awarded the contract to build and design the world’s largest Leg Encircling Crane, capable to lift 1540mt at 34 metres for Seajacks’ new build jack-up vessel Seajacks Scylla in 2013, which became operational late 2015. Huisman delivered cranes for wind turbine installation contractors such as GeoSea, MPI Offshore, GMS, Scaldis and Seajacks. In addition to the cranes we have already delivered, Huisman is currently building an 800mt Pedestal Mounted Crane for

Penta Ocean Construction, a 1,600mt Leg Encircling Crane for Van Oord and a 3,000mt Offshore Mast Crane for Boskalis. Wind Turbine Shuttle The Wind Turbine Shuttle, a dynamically positioned, fast sailing (14 knots) installation vessel, is another example of a dedicated offshore wind turbine installation product design. The vessel can carry and install two complete wind turbines in one piece, allowing commissioning and testing to be done onshore and thus reducing installation time offshore. By combining low vessel motions, active heave, roll and pitch compensating systems and a full DP3 system, the wind turbine is kept virtually stationary in relation to the fixed foundation, thus increasing offshore workability.

Services Jan De Nul Group provides services related to the installation of offshore wind farms, including installation of export and inter array cables, fabrication and installation of Gravity Based Foundations, transport and installation of jacket or monopile foundations and high voltage stations, installation of scour protection around the foundations, and installation of the entire wind turbines itself. Fleet Through a constant pursuit of quality and technical innovation, Jan De Nul Group owns a very modern and wellbalanced marine fleet for all stages involved in the seabed preparation, wind farm installation and ballasting of the structure.

The jack-up vessel Vole au vent was especially built to install offshore wind farms. The vessel is one of the largest of its kind in the world. The large cargo deck space and payload and the lifting capacity of its crane up to 1,400 tonnes enable swift and safe installation of the heaviest foundations and other components of offshore wind parks. The vessel is 140 metres long and is equipped with four legs to lift itself above the sea level for stable working without impact of the waves. The vessel can install all kinds of foundations, as well as the latest generation of wind turbines, in water depths up to 50 metres. The Group also disposes of cable installation vessels and in-house designed trenching tools to overcome

unnavigable tidal areas. The multipurpose vessel Isaac Newton can be deployed on a variety of projects: installing subsea cables, trench dredging and subsea rock installation, which definitely makes it unique. In cable-installation mode it is able of transporting and laying cable in a single length with a total weight of approximately 10,500 tonnes. Beginning 2017, two new multipurpose vessels were delivered: Adhémar de Saint-Venant and Daniel Bernoulli. The construction of multipurpose vessels allows Jan De Nul Group to better meet the clients’ requests to have a project executed by one contractor of one vessel and to reduce the mobilisation costs for its clients.


EPCI Clients are increasingly seeking a complete, one-stop-shop solution for their projects – with an integrated approach from first designs to final installation. Jan De Nul Group’s deep expertise in marine design, procurement and construction engineering enables the group to respond with a total package on an EPC basis, eliminating the risks for the client.

Onsite health and safety are given absolute priority, supported by thorough training and maintaining constant safety awareness, using our internal awareness programme Imagine. Think. Act. Imagine the possibilities, buts also the risks. Think it through first, by creating a plan and communicating it to all involved. Act safely, by leading the plan proactively, knowing when to stop and re-think. Thanks to these ongoing efforts, the company has received several safety certificates, including the A-rating in Australia.

77

Jan De Nul Group has an in-house engineering department that designs new equipment, or modifies existing equipment, as needed. Each offshore job brings new challenges, and vessels and equipment are constantly adapted to find the ideal solution to specific customer needs, even if it’s only for one particular project.

Track record Jan De Nul Group is currently providing services for four offshore wind farms in Europe: an EPCI-contract including the installation of 51 monopile foundations and 50 wind turbines for the wind park Nobelwind in Belgium; seabed preparation and installation of ten gravity based foundations for the Tahkoluoto wind park in Finland; the installation of two export cables, covering 144 kilometre, in the United Kingdom. connecting the Race Bank wind farm with the mainland; and also in the United Kingdom, the installation of one export cable and 32 inter-array cables for the Burbo Bank wind farm. Upcoming renewable projects are the installation of 36 foundations for the Borkum Riffgrund wind farm in Germany and the Gravity Based Foundations of the Kriegers Flak wind farm in Denmark.

MPI Offshore - wind turbine & foundation installation Delivered in 2003, MPI Resolution was the first bespoke designed WTIV and is currently fitted with a 600 tonnes crane. Building on the pioneering experience gained in operating MPI Resolution, MPI Adventure and MPI Discovery have been added to provide a fleet that positions MPI Offshore as the world leader in offshore installation. Up-to-date technology is incorporated in these 2011 builds encompassing high capacity, high speed jacking systems, larger deck space, DP2 positioning system and a 1,000 tonnes main crane. These features are vital for the safe and efficient delivery of offshore projects today and into the future. The fleet has been extended further with the acquisition of the 2011-built MPI Enterprise in early 2015.

Key features include a 1,000 tonnes main crane, a maximum operating depth of 45 metres and the ability to jack with 4,350 tonnes cargo on board. Recently, MPI Resolution’s legs have been extended enabling the vessel to operate in water depths of up to 35 metres, depending upon the site-specific data. This represents a gain of over seven metres on the previous jacking capabilities of the vessel and substantially increases the operability as a result. MPI Consultants Offshore installation professionals available on demand to provide your project with experience, innovation and time efficient solutions. With over a decade of offshore installation there is no group or company with a greater experience of the commercial,

MPI Workboats

MPI offers suitably qualified and experienced personnel to complement the services provided by the other divisions of MPI. Rigging resources can be fully tailored to suit project specific requirements, from onshore logistics through to offshore installation of WTGs as well as operations and maintenance works. Typical crew and skillsets MPI can provide: •  riggers / welders; •  rope access technicians; •  bolting technicians; •  mechanical / electrical hook up technicians; •  deck superintendents; •  appointed persons; •  offshore construction managers.

MPI Workboats MPI Workboats operates a fleet of state-of-the-art, purpose-built wind farm support catamarans. MPI realised at an early stage that our customers’ requirements for a workboat differed greatly between the construction phase and the operational phase of a wind farm. Working with the likes of Dong Energy, Siemens Wind Power, Centrica Energy, London Array, Statoil and E.ON, MPI Workboats operates fast catamarans for the transfer of personnel and equipment between shore and the offshore construction site or wind farm. Our vessels are constructed to a very high standard and are all built by one of the largest boat builders in the Uinted Kingdom, South Boats IOW Limited. The current fleet includes nine crew transfer vessels ranging from 17 to 22 metres, all being robust, fast and seaworthy. This allows MPI Workboats to work in a variety of challenging environments. The layout of the vessels has been designed with the comfort and safety of the passengers they carry in mind. Further information can be found at www.mpi-offshore.com.

Equipment Growth of the offshore wind industry and fierce advances in component sizes for offshore installation has led to MPI’s need to introduce existing heavy lift plant, new technology and

custom-built tools to seamlessly integrate with the installation spread of the current fleet of purpose-built WTIVs. Over the last decade of offshore construction, it has been clear to MPI that it is not only a vessel that is essential to the safe and successful installation of wind turbines and sub sea foundations. Sound engineering practices, innovative design and application, the investment in required equipment and tooling, and the professional team to perform are just as important. MPI therefore owns and operates the additional items of construction equipment used either with, or to complement, the WTIVs.

Mukran Port Offshore base port for the Baltic Sea Mukran Port is a deep-water facility in north-east Germany which provides ideal conditions to serve as a base port for the offshore wind industry both in nautical and geographical terms. All the common offshore vessels, including jack-up barges and floating cranes, can call at the port, which has a draught of up to 11.50 metres. There are no restrictions on access caused by tides, locks or bridges. The short distances between the base port and the wind parks provide clear cost benefits for operators and suppliers – just as the easy approach to the port without the need for any pilot or tug services.

The port offers ideal conditions and berths where both freighters and highly specialised vessels for the offshore wind power industry can dock. “Offshore components cannot be delivered by road because of their size. The units must either arrive at the quayside or be produced at the port site”, Harm Sievers, Managing Director of Fährhafen Sassnitz GmbH, explains. Offshore Terminal South: 100,000m² for the installation of windfarms Completed in 2013, the Offshore Terminal South proved its capacity in 2014/2015 during the installation of the offshore wind farm EnBW Baltic 2. Currently the terminal is being used for the delivery, storage, pre-assembly and transhipment of the 70 wind turbines for the 350MW Wikinger windfarm, which will be operated by

the Spanish energy utility Iberdrola. The special feature of this project is the selection of Mukran Port also as a base port for the ship to ship transfer of the approx. 600 tonnes jacket foundations for the offshore wind farm Wikinger. A quay length of about 600 metres, a surface load of maximum 50 tonnes and experienced port staff are ensuring safe and efficient terminal operations. Moreover, the project is benefiting from a 1,500m² warehouse and a 740m² insulated warehouse, which is suitable for the storage of temperature sensitive spare parts, tools and electro technical components. The projects offices are placed directly on the terminal area which results in an improved communication between the

Further port extension: Offshore Terminal North and O&M port While the Southern Offshore Terminal will be utilised until 2017/2018, the infrastructure for another offshore project is already being prepared: Another 120,000m² combined with a 20t/m² heavy duty quay are under construction on the Northern Terminal. From 2018 the terminal will be used for the installation of the 385MW offshore wind farm Arkona Becken Südost, which will be operated by E.ON. When having a look at the ports infrastructure and its extension one should not forget the important segment of operations and maintenance (O&M). Being able to quickly response to potential problems is key to ensure a good performance and availability of the turbine. Against this background Mukran Port commenced construction works for a new O&M port which will become fully operational in 2017. Crew transfer vessels, tugs and supply vessels will be able to use berths 1 and 1a in the future. The berths are located close to the Offshore Terminal South and comprise a total length of approx. 303 metres. E.ON and Iberdrola two major players of the offshore wind branch already have signed agreements with Mukran Port on the use of the new O&M port and related areas – for the next 25 years!

1- Safeway – year round workability To drive down the costs of operations (OPEX), the number of workable days must be increased. Now only 200 days is assumed to be the realistic industry standard. With Safeway workability of 95 per cent and more is feasible due to the unique roll compensating mast. Increase from 200 up to over 350 workable days delivers up to 42 per cent possible cost reduction. The Safeway philosophy was to design a people transfer bridge which will not be the vessel’s weakest link during W2W operations. The vessel itself or regulations will limit the workability. Safeway has developed an in-house calculation tool in cooperation with MARIN to quickly calculate your vessel’s real workability.

Ten metre vertical elevation & 28 metre maximum length The ten-metre step-less height adjustable mast results into flexibility. Not only for offshore wind market but also for other W2W markets. Landing height up to and above 25 metre is feasible as well as remaining access at ten metre above sea level. The 28 metre maximum boom length adds another advantage to the Safeway possibilities, deployable to both sides of the vessel and remaining more distance from the offshore structure. Step-less access From the first Seagull design, Safeway has been further developed to accommodate specific needs for certain clients. The Seagull class with counterweight and its flexibility is a real all-rounder suitable for all W2W

markets. The Osprey type is specifically designed to meet requirement of stepless access from the vessel’s changing room all the way to the offshore structure. With elevator from warehouse or locker room the technicians and cargo can be vertically moved. From the elevator exit and access platform the gangway can be entered and the offshore structure can be reached. Further it is optionally possible to move cargo with remote controlled trolley through the gangway. Sheltered, enclosed cabin & transfer Transferring over un-enclosed gangway may work well on a beautiful spring day, but in less favourable conditions (rain, snow, temperature extremes) most technicians would not find the experience to be enjoyable. The Safeway enclosed gangway provides an enclosed and


crew and limits the overall workability of the vessel. With CargoSafe the vessel’s untapped potential can be unleashed to benefit the vessel owner in offering the vessel on more demanding offshore lifting jobs: • safe offshore lifting, ranging from SWL 1.50 tonnes up to ten tonnes; • increased workability of total vessel; • separate roll compensation; • easily adaptable to existing crane; • light weight; • controlled from existing crane cabin; • cargo handling and man-riding. 3D cargo transfer The Safeway can be equipped with a winch at the tip of the gangway which provides the possibility to lift up to 400kg in all sea conditions. In more moderate sea states the winch can be upgraded to lift up to 1,000kg. The gangway tip winch is fully 3D motion compensated, meaning that the swinging of the load due to the moving vessel will be eliminated and safe lifting is achieved.

Inside & outside of the gangway illuminated for night time operations

relatively climate-controlled route from the vessel to the offshore structure. Safeway further is convinced that the operator must have a cabin as a proper working place. It is of utmost importance that the operator stays alert at all the times and in order to do so an enclosed temperature controlled (heating and airco) cabin is a must.

2 - CargoSafe, upgrading your offshore crane to 3D crane

Upgraded crane with CargoSafe

2016 Novelty Customers were asking Safeway to enlarge 3D lifting capacity of cargo gangway. In order to meet this market requirement, CargoSafe is developed.

Summary Safeway & CargoSafe opens possibilities for vessels to perform offshore works more efficient as ever thought possible. This gives added value and opportunities for the vessel owner. The combination of gangway and 3D crane jib will bring the more safety to do more complex jobs efficiently. Markets for next generation W2W vessels equipped with Safeway and CargoSafe: • offshore wind maintenance; • maintenance on O&G platforms; • offshore wind construction; • crew change O&G platforms; • decommisioning O&G platforms; • deepsea mining crew change; • FPSO maintenance; • seismic operations crew change; • maintenance meteo platforms.

T +32 (0)35 41 69 55 F +32 (0)35 41 81 93 E mail@scaldis-smc.com I www.scaldis-smc.com ScaldisSMC Contact: Linda Vanhaelst

Scaldis provides turnkey and other cost-effective solutions for projects using its multi-purpose heavy lift vessels and is active in five distinct market sectors, namely: • oil and gas; • renewables; • decommissioning; • civil works; • heavy lifting related to salvage works.

110

One of the Scaldis’ many strengths is its willingness to work closely with client from the early stages in order to develop the most efficient and effective methodology. Scaldis’ current heavy lift vessel, the Rambiz, has a unique arrangement with two cranes, a shallow draft, a large deck space and extensive accommodation

facilities. This gives Rambiz the ability to operate in areas that many other vessels cannot access. Her ability to work in both deep and shallow waters provides valuable flexibility. The combination of two deck cranes enables the Rambiz to lift unusual structures that would otherwise require two separate vessels. The two cranes can work independently or be synchronised to provide unrivalled flexibility when handling structures. Scaldis is a significant participant in the rapidly expanding offshore construction and decommissioning markets and, in order to meet the increasing demands of these markets, the shareholders of Scaldis have ordered a new heavy lift vessel with a lifting capacity of 4,000 tonnes. The Gulliver will possess many of the key assets of Rambiz, but will

also incorporate the following new developments that will extend the opportunities for the vessel: • increased workability; • lifting capacity of 4,000 tonnes; • fully self-propelled; • DP2; • skidding cranes to allow greater deck space flexibility; • helideck. With its increased capacity and enhanced features, Scaldis expects Gulliver to extend the boundaries of what can be achieved across a wider geographic area. The European market is a prime area of focus. Until the delivery of the Gulliver, this market will remain a large and valuable market for the company.


Scaldis strives to achieve the highest level of quality, safety and environmental awareness throughout its activities. Certification according ISO9001, ISO 14001 and OHSAS 18001 is a demonstration of its commitment to deliver and improve the quality of service to its clients.

Tidal Transit Ltd Offshore logistics and vessel operator Tidal Transit, operating out of Docking in North Norfolk, has risen to the challenge of one of East Anglia’s rapidly expanding industry sectors – offshore wind energy. The construction and maintenance of an increasing number of offshore wind farms along the east coast of the United Kingdom is offering exciting business opportunities for services providers with ambition and vision that are willing to respond to the challenge. Tidal Transit own and operate a fleet of state-of-the-art, purpose-designed support vessels to transport construction workers and maintenance crew out into the North Sea.

The vessels’ specifications greatly exceed the current fleet being used for the same purpose in the United Kingdom. The MCA Cat 1 coding and 9,000 litre fuel tanks give them a range of up to 150 miles from safe haven, well within the range of the United Kingdom’s forthcoming Round 3 wind farms. Each of the 20-metre crew transfer vessels (CTVs) provides four crew members and twelve passengers with comfortable beds, galley, bathroom, internet and entertainment facilities, enabling wind farm engineers to live and work on-site for several days at a time. All of the 20-metre CTV’s rugged GRP construction allows them to operate in rough seas – a major advantage when working in the North Sea.

They are also fitted with twin V12 MAN engines that allow them to achieve 26 knots when carrying twelve passengers plus crew, and up to ten tonnes of on-board cargo. Massive cargo decks fore and aft can accommodate up to 10,000kg of tools, equipment and spares, and the Guerra crane on the fore deck with a lifting capacity of 1,025kg at 6.90-metre caters for long reach loading and unloading. The vessels are also equipped with a moon pool for camera surveys and grab sampling. Since their arrival in the United Kingdom, Tidal Transit’s vessels have been in continuous use, firstly at the Greater Gabbard then Sheringham Shoal, Gwynt y Mor and Westermost Rough wind farms. It is a testament

to their rugged reliability that they have remained on charter over the winter months. During 2016 the 20-metre CTVs have also be used to service met masts within the Dogger and Hornsea Round 3 zones, the furthest being over 120 miles from shore. Since January 2016 Tidal Transit has been managing the ‘Umoe Firmus’, an innovative surface effect ship from Umoe Mandal. This vessel has exceeded 50 knots in transit and has been transferring in above 2-metre Hs (designed for 2.50-metre Hs). Tidal Transit also owns and operates a dedicated survey vessel, the Katie Louise.

Development

Sustainable EPC and marine contractor Van Oord’s specialised division Offshore Wind Projects is involved in many offshore wind projects in Europe. As EPC contractor, Van Oord is responsible for engineering, procurement and installation of the entire offshore wind farm, except for the turbine supply. With the successful completion of the offshore wind parks Princess Amalia, Belwind Phase 1, Teesside, Eneco Luchterduinen and most recently Gemini, we have proven our capability to act as an EPC contractor. In addition to our EPC activities we provide construction services such as scour protection and inter array cable installation to the offshore wind industry. Recently we have worked on London Array, Greater Gabbard, Sheringham Shoal and Dan Tysk.

Our equipment The visionary projects of our clients can only be realised by the best people working with the latest technology. That is why Van Oord operates the world’s most advanced fleet, which encompasses specialised vessels and dedicated equipment and tools. The Aeolus is an in house designed innovative offshore installation vessel for the transport and installation of foundations and wind turbines. The vessel is 139 metres long, 38 metres wide and is fitted with a crane capable of hoisting over 990 tonnes. Cablelaying vessel Nexus is 123 metres long and is equipped with a 5,000 tonnes carousel and a 100 tonnes knuckle-boom crane. Both vessels did a great job for the construction of the Gemini Offshore Wind Park. Outlook 2017 In 2017 we have more projects to

accomplish. First we start with the transport and installation of the 87 foundations at Walney Extension offshore wind farm, United Kingdom. The installation work will start in spring. We also signed a contract for the Balance of Plant works for the Norther Offshore Wind Farm, Belgium. The activities encompass the engineering, procurement, supply and installation of the foundations, the Offshore High Voltage Station and the cables. The years after 2017 are also promising, to start with the preparations for the offshore wind farms Borssele III and IV. And on top of that, the Aeolus will be upgraded with a 1,600 tonnes crane and a larger deck space. Would you like to stay up to date about the newest offshore wind projects of Van Oord? You can find the latest news on www.vanoord.com.


Guarding the environment More often we’re working in ecologically vulnerable areas. Therefore it’s important to prevent and mitigate undesirable environmental effects. Van Oord’s Guards programme includes several promising environmental innovations. During pile-driving operations for the Gemini Offshore Wind Park, we proactively used the FaunaGuard to prevent potential permanent hearing loss in porpoises, a protected species. vanoord.com/sustainability

with complex hydrodynamic and finite element calculations. Track record In recent years our operational engineering activities in Offshore Wind have expanded the design and modifications of jack-ups, second opinions on suitability of equipment, and the design of complete new equipment.

In-house developments Our experience with a lot of different clients have also led to in-house product development with the aim to reduce installation time and costs for our clients. As an example hereof we mention the so-called Boom Based Blade Manipulator. This is a blade handling tool which increases the allowable wind speed for installation. Other examples are our in-house developed jacking system, and the development of a method to install a full turbine or a foundation with a floating vessel.

Windcat Workboats Pushing Energy to the Max Windcat Workboats is Europe’s leading provider of specialist crew transfer vessels to the offshore wind power industry, oil and gas industry and other offshore projects. The unique design of the vessels result in simple, fast, safe and comfortable transfer of personnel and equipment offshore. With over 1,400,000 safe transfers completed, the vessels have proven to operate in more challenging sea conditions than other competing vessels. Our vessels can be used to transfer crew and equipment, both during construction and O&M, as emergency response, standby or survey vessel but also for dive support and ornithological studies. Windcat Workboats was founded in 2002 and has a long track record in serving the offshore wind industry.

Our vessels have a proven operational track record in this field, having worked in England, Scotland, Ireland, Belgium, the Netherlands, Denmark, Germany and Sweden. With our fleet of 40 dedicated Crew Transfer Vessels with over 14 years’ experience we still have the largest fleet of specialist crew transfer vessels for the offshore wind industry globally. With the variety of the vessels we can offer our clients the most suitable vessels with an optimum use for their project.

The Windgrip System is now fitted to 15 vessels, including all recent new vessels and is expected to be fitted to more vessels in future. In 2016 the system was awarded twice, first winning the 2016 Health and Safety Award by the Crown Estate and Renewables UK and second the EEEGR Cost Reduction and Collaboration Award.

New Windcat MK3XL and Windcat MK3XLR type In order to meet the developing requirements of the industry and in an effort to keep our fleet up to the highest standards we have started to introduce a new vessel type in our fleet. By lengthening existing vessels and refitting them to the standards of brand new vessels we keep the vessels in line with the increased demand for larger carrying capacity and foredeck space.

131

Windgrip System – winning two awards in 2016 To improve the safety of offshore transfers and to increase the accessibility of wind turbines, we have developed the Windgrip System (Patent Pending). By using

constant tension winches, a smart control system and specially designed straps, the grip on the turbine’s boat landing is increased. This improves the safety of a transfer and also stops the vessel dropping away suddenly in extreme sea conditions. The tension can be adjusted to remove the need for the vessel to have its engines engaged, therefore reducing fuel burn and CO2 emissions.

Zeeland Seaports Your number one port for the offshore wind industry The North Sea is an ideal location for the generation of wind energy. The wind is favourable and thanks to the shallow water depth it is relatively easy to build large wind farms here. Not surprisingly, quite a few offshore wind projects are planned; projects that require a lot of materials that need to be shipped in by sea. “The port of Vlissingen as part of Zeeland Seaports, is an ideal home base for delivery”, Peter Geertse, Commercial Manager of Zeeland Seaports, said. ‘And not just for wind-energy projects, but also for oil and gas production activities.’

“Our location is one of our strong points. The ports are close to the North Sea and are favourably located in relation to the Netherlands, Belgium, the north of France, the United Kingdom and even Germany and Denmark. In the waters offshore of these countries, major wind farms will be developed over the coming years. In addition, our ports are easily accessible. Large installation vessels can navigate freely, unencumbered by locks or bridges.” This is important because what is true anywhere, is true for this branch especially: time is money. For the transport of heavy loads, special ships are needed, which can only carry limited amounts of cargo each time. Therefore, speedy handling is of the utmost importance.

Peter Geertse: “Space is another advantage of the Vlissingen location. Many wind generator parts are manufactured in the hinterland, for example in Limburg. These companies often look to us specifically for the temporary storage of items including monopiles and transition pieces. Companies such as BOW Terminals and Verbrugge Terminals are offering the space and facilities needed for efficient transshipment to the wind farm projects. This is not all that these ports have to offer. Hoondert and VDS, for example, are specialised in large steel construction work; Heerema builds jackets and transformer topsides, Mammoet is a heavy lift and transport specialist, and Multraship provide towage and lifting services. These companies are only a small example of

what is on offer, there are many other companies providing vital services. In short, we have everything needed to facilitate the building of offshore energy projects. More then 20 projects have already proven that Vlissingen is a successful home base for the offshore wind industry.” It is an image that Zeeland Seaports wants to maintain and reinforce. “It is an industry with a future. Today, the wind farms are being built. This will involve many shipping movements and extra jobs – specifically in construction and assembly work in the future. These wind farms will all need O&M bases. Again, this will involve more jobs in construction and logistics.” The port company has joined forces with trade & industry to promote the opportunities


presented by Vlissingen-Oost. This will promote the advantages on offer from the port of Zeeland and all the companies involved in these offshore projects.

intelligent monitoring

Zensor End-to-end integrity management solutions.

A continuous view on the integrity of your structures is essential. By combining state-of-the-art technology, data acquisition and analysis algorithms, at Zensor we have developed a unique monitoring solution for actively reducing risks and costs associated with operating offshore wind assets, mainly foundation structures. Together with our vast network of partners. In all our projects we commit ourselves to providing independent opinions and robust solutions focusing only on reducing the total cost of ownership in your present and future offshore ventures.

At Zensor we keep an eye on the whole picture of the offshore wind farm, from design and financing, over construction, O&M towards repowering. The expertise offered consists of: • advise and support in the design and development phase, including design validation and guidelines; • design, engineering and installation of monitoring packages for longterm follow-up of structural integrity (Structural Health Monitoring: SHM), including sensors and backbone IT system; • continuous (remote) readout of data and data storage; • maintenance and upgrading of software and monitoring infrastructure; • automated interpretation based on acquired data, operational parameters, SCADA and Meteo inputs; • advanced analysis for fatigue life, corrosion progress, virtual sensing, hotspot analysis...; • reporting and advise towards main­tenance, repair operations, more efficient operating parameters, lifetime extension, true age and design validation; • support in lifetime extension and repowering projects. This broad scope allows operators to optimally limit the negative effects of ageing and deterioration for new and existing structures.

‘real age’ of a foundation and identify in a very early stage the onset of structural or operational problems. The focus is on individual structures as well as farm-wide phenomena. This allows early, low cost repairs, optimal preparation of the repair operation, but also a follow-up of the repair measures themselves. As such a significant risk reduction is achieved over 20 to 25 operational years, the foreseen life span of a wind farm. A proper remote monitoring solution begins with identifying those components and/or phenomena that need to be tracked. Aspects to take into account are the risks related to potential issues with the component and the amount of information that can be gathered from the phenomenon. Of interest are all relevant parameters such as fatigue, corrosion, dynamics, stresses and deformations, bolt tension, scour...

In order to obtain real, advanced informa­ tion on the state of the offshore structures, the acquired data from which it will be derived needs to be of sufficiently high quality. To obtain this, multiple elements are taken into account. Focus is on loca­tion and type of sensors, design of logic units, data logging scheme as well as transfer and long-term storage. Last but not least followed by the interpretation and reporting based on the acquired data, opera­tional conditions and external loads obtained from met data. This process is com­pli­ mented with an automated follow-up of the monitoring process itself, resulting in a maximum quality and availability of all data. Do not hesitate to contact us and find out how we can provide a tailored solution for optimal, long lasting risk and cost reduction in your project.
