EDITOR’S NOTE Dear reader, Welcome to the 7th 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 six 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. As a guide, both in print an online, we have been innovating ourselves. With more insights into the worldwide supply chain and a wider selection of companies and organisations: the 2018 version of the online Offshore WIND International Business Guide promises to take the reference guide to the next level. The new setup is mostly thanks to a new cooperation of the Offshore WIND team with TKI Wind op Zee, a Dutch organisation connecting the sector with knowledge centres and stimulating innovation. The online supply chain tool shows the structure of the supply chain of the Netherlands, but also includes a world map with locations of wind parks and organisations, more diversification in the different supply chain levels and the addition of knowledge centers and organisations. Also, the news coverage

on OffshoreWIND.biz is now linked with the relevant wind farms. Every company with a profile in the guide is to be found online On OffshoreWIND.biz video clips, photograph galleries and updated information about the companies can also be found and you will 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, where the offshore wind community meets, as possible.

European Wind Energy Masters The offshore wind energy industry is growing so rapidly that the only way to keep up is with new innovative technologies. The students of the European Wind Energy Master try to solve these challenges and are undergoing preparation to become the niche engineers the industry needs. This article intends to identify crucial developments in the offshore wind industry from a student perspective.

10

The main driving force behind the ongoing growth of the wind industry is upscaling of the capacity of the wind turbines and the rapidly dropping price per kilowatt. This is due to an ecosystem where large companies are present to carry the momentum and challenge each other to drive down the price through healthy competition. But it is equally important that the large corporations do not stifle smaller enterprises. There should be room for start-ups to cause disruption and acceleration in new technologies.

can prove a major step forward in installing large capacity offshore wind farms along coastlines with deeper waters such as in Japan and the Americas. China and Taiwan are also new players looking to make strides in the market. As the cradle of wind energy - especially offshore wind Europe should focus not only on the export of wind turbines, but also on their export of expertise and smart solutions. Global collaborative projects might mark the way forward.

The recent decommissioning of the world’s first offshore wind park puts into perspective the enormous development that has happened since 1991. The eleven 450 kilowatt turbines of Vindeby that were installed with a life expectancy of 20 years, retired after 26 years of service. The knowledge of fatigue and lifetime extension acquired over the years lets us get the maximum out of a turbine’s potential. This decommissioning also marks the opening up of a new market, where the removal of wind farms can attract new companies to the offshore wind energy sector.

This current growth of the wind industry is unprecedented, and ambitious experts in the field are required to overcome arising challenges. To maintain the supply of high end and ambitious experts, a close connection between the industry and academia is essential. The role of universities in this market should be to provide the industry not only with a better quality of specialised engineers, but also in greater numbers to meet the growing demand. It is up to the universities to formulate an education with the notion that most conventional solutions will not resolve all the future challenges.

The development that is happening in Europe is essential to the role that Europe has and wants to play in the future. Established programs, like the European Wind Energy Master, underlines a commitment to continuing the role of Europe as the world leader in wind turbine technology. For example, the floating wind turbines developed here

Overall, the offshore wind sector is experiencing a thriving growth with low tender prices and government push for renewable energy. But to continue this growth rate, it is important for the industry to keep pushing for new innovations. Also, the tightening of the relations between the offshore industry and the education is of crucial importance.

Belgian Offshore Platform The Belgian Offshore Platform (BOP) reunites the investors and project developers of wind energy in the Belgian part of the North Sea. BOP is the voice of the Belgian offshore wind energy.

Offshore wind energy in Belgium There are currently nine offshore wind projects in the Exclusive Economic Zone (EEZ) representing a total installed capacity of 2,200MW offshore wind energy. In 2017, four projects, C-Power, Belwind, Northwind and Nobelwind, representing 877MW, are fully operational, which meets the electricity needs of 860,000 homes. Rentel and Norther, representing 678MW capacity, are currently being constructed. They will be commissioned in 2018 and 2019. The fully consented projects Mermaid, Northwester 2 and Seastar, are in the development phase. They are expected to commission their projects by 2020. With these developments, Belgium is currently the sixth highest offshore wind country in the world. With 877MW operational offshore wind capacity in the smallest EEZ in the North Sea, the Belgian companies active in the offshore wind industry are building on pioneering experiences in this field. Renewables target The nine windfarms are expected to be fully operational in 2020. They will represent 2,200MW wind capacity and provide an average of 8 TWh/year of renewable electricity, which is equivalent to ten per cent of the current electricity demand in Belgium, or half of the 2020 renewable electricity target.

12

The European Union aims to further reduce greenhouse gas emissions by 40 per cent for 2030, with a 27 per cent share of renewable energy. To contribute to this goal, the BOP actively advocates 2GW additional offshore wind capacity in the Belgian North Sea after 2020. This will increase the total North Sea wind capacity to 4GW, which is an essential building block for the security of supply in the postnuclear era. A nuclear phase-out Act of 2003 foresees to close down all the nuclear reactors in Belgium by 2025. Continuing investment in offshore wind energy is therefore imperative. Innovation & expertise in the Belgian offshore wind value chain As early as 2003, Belgium started with the development of its first offshore wind farm on the Thornton Bank (C-Power). For the pilot phase, six gravity based foundations were constructed

in Ostend on which the first offshore 5MW wind turbines were installed in 2008. This pilot phase was followed by the installation of 6MW wind turbines on jacket foundations. Several Belgian companies such as DEME, CG, Fabricom, Jan De Nul, Hanssen Industrial Transmissions, GeoSea, Iemants, G-Tech, etc., active in maritime construction, offshore electrical infrastructure, gearbox manufacturing and cable laying, contributed to the successful construction and operation of the Belgian offshore wind farms. This pioneering expertise of the Belgian offshore wind energy sector is already being exported abroad: many Belgian companies are active in European and international offshore wind projects. In 2018, construction activities will continue to be deployed in the Belgian part of the North Sea with the windfarms Rentel (309MW) and Norther (369MW) as well as with the construction of the Modular Offshore Grid (MOG) of Elia, which will connect four offshore wind farms to an offshore switch yard to bring the offshore wind power to shore. These offshore activities will continue to boost the Belgian offshore wind industry, and will keep these companies at the forefront of offshore wind energy in Europe and the world.

Business Network for Offshore Wind Building a new U.S. industry The Business Network for Offshore Wind is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organisation solely focused on the development of the U.S. offshore wind industry and advancement of its supply chain. We are not a trade association of many voices; we are one leading voice for the offshore wind business community. We bring together developers, policymakers, academia, global experts and more than 150 member businesses for critical discussions and unprecedented networking opportunities. We are the U.S. offshore wind experts.

National offshore wind target The national offshore wind strategy: Facilitating the development of the offshore wind industry in the United States sets a 86GWs goal of offshore wind by 2050. The current U.S. offshore wind energy pipeline is estimated at 24,135MW, with 14,785MW under exclusive site control by developers. The United States differs from other countries in that there is not a national energy policy. States drive energy policy and make decisions locally about energy mix, off-takes and planning. Currently, there is a policy goal to develop 2.40GWs in New York by 2030, legislation in Massachusetts to procure 1.60GWs, and a financing mechanism called an Offshore Renewable Energy Credit to develop and build at least 1.10GWs of offshore wind in New Jersey and 368MWs in Maryland. Other states with offshores wind activity are: Maine, Rhode Island, Delaware, Virginia, North Carolina, South Carolina, Ohio, California and Hawaii. Current status of project pipelines (in MW) in most active U.S. states The Block Island wind farm, a 30MW, five-turbine project in Rhode Island, is currently the U.S.’ only operating project. America’s first utility-scale offshore wind farm, the 90MW South Fork Wind Farm could start construction as early as 2019 and be operational as early as 2022. This 15-turbine project is expected to be the first wind farm constructed in the Deepwater ONE Wind Energy Area. In May 2017, the Maryland Public Service Commission approved financing for two projects totalling 368MWs. In June 2017, Massachusetts let a Response for Proposals for the State’s first procurement of offshore wind with offers to be based on a minimum of 400MW but not to exceed 800MW. The successful bids will be announced in 2018.

Three US Department of Energy (DOE) demonstration projects will be installed by 2020.

1. The University of Maine’s semisubmersible floating offshore wind design Aqua Ventus, a 12MW floating offshore wind demonstration project called New England Aqua Ventus I; 2. The Lake Erie Energy Development Corporation (LEEDCO) Icebreaker project is a six-turbine 20.70MW demonstration project, currently in the permitting phase; 3. The Coastal Virginia Offshore Wind project, a two turbine 12MW project, located 27 miles off the coast, owned by Dominion Energy and developed by Ørsted Energy. Future plans for OSW in the USA The offshore wind industry is ramping up quickly in the US, aided by a national standards and guidelines setting initiative led by NREL. BOEM will auction two more wind energy lease sites in Massachusetts in Summer 2018. US DOE is expected to provide 18 million dollars to a U.S. Offshore Wind Research and Development Consortium to conduct U.S.-specific offshore wind R&D that is aimed at reducing the cost of offshore wind in the US. New leadership in New Jersey will remove the barriers to development and growth that have held the state back from implementing offshore wind legislation that was signed into law in 2006. Ørsted and US Wind, the two New Jersey leaseholders, will be able to progress much faster to develop their lease sites with a workable financial off-take framework already in place. Ports, assembly areas and offshore wind industry infrastructure are currently being evaluated and developed. Innovative logistical, installation and market-based solutions are being developed to work around the Jones Act. Role of U.S. in international market Initially, the U.S. will largely be an importer of technical expertise and equipment from Europe, and will also convert its on-shore wind and oil and gas offshore expertise for the offshore wind industry. As the market in the U.S. grows, it will look to export its innovations to the wider global market.

DWIA The Danish Wind Industry Association 2017 was the first year after the record bids for Kriegers Flak and the Danish Near Shore tenders, Vesterhav Nord & Syd in late 2016. No new tenders have been completed in 2017, however offshore wind has by no means been at a standstill in what was a very busy year for the Danish wind industry.

As much as offshore wind was the order of the day in 2016, 2017 has been all about onshore wind in Denmark, at least when it comes to energy policy. Technology neutral competition between onshore wind and PV has been decided and will roll out in 2018. Also in 2018, a new 2020-2030 energy agreement is expected to be formalised, setting the ambitions for the renewables expansion in the next decade. Although Danish politicians and the industry are keen to increase the competition, offshore wind is expected to continue with technology specific tenders, which has proven effective so far. By the end of 2017, Denmark has 1,294MW of offshore capacity across 13 wind farms. Up 23MW from 2016 due to the installation of Nissum Bredning of 28MW and the deconstruction of Vindeby of almost 5MW. Vindeby is the world’s first offshore wind farm and the wind farm has operated until spring 2017, where Ørsted decommissioned the turbines, foundations and cables and reused the materials. As the first offshore project, little was known about the wear and tear from the seas and it is truly remarkable and a testament to the potential of offshore wind that the wind farm operated for this long.

16

To ensure the durability of offshore wind and to lower costs, testing and demonstration is essential, and that is the main reason behind the Nissum Bredning project. Located on relatively shallow waters in a broad in Northern Jutland, the wind farm will test and demonstrate eight elements. Amongst them a type test of new gravity foundations, a slender tower structure along with a 0-series test of the SWT-7.0-154. The four turbines will also demonstrate operation with synchronised rotors for visual appearance and test LIDAR power curve measurement. Next generation testing arriving soon 2017 also saw the introduction of a bill to expand the onshore test facilities in Denmark. Facilities that can take both onshore and offshore prototypes, and in total the bill proposes to increase the capacity in the two current test centers from 12 to 16 test pads. The largest test center, Østerild, in Northern Jutland will in the future accommodate

330-metre-tall turbines on seven out of nine test pads. The expansion in numbers and height is crucial for the further development and test of turbines, which is expected to increase in the coming years. Turbines that are expected to be in the 10+ MW category. Attractive knowledge and industry The Danish model for offshore tenders have already been applied to other markets, and as offshore markets in e.g. United States are formalising more and more, Danish expertise and knowledge is increasingly being ‘exported’. In October 2017, the Danish government shook hands with the Trump Administration to share knowledge and to expand the corporation on offshore wind across the Atlantic. In 2017, WindEurope awarded Copenhagen the two major events WindEurope Offshore 2019 and WindEurope Summit 2021. The appointment of Denmark serves as example of Denmark’s leading position in wind energy.

NORWEA Wind Wave Tidal Norway lacks a domestic market for offshore wind, at the same time Norwegian companies have a total market share of around five per cent 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 target of 67.50 per cent of total energy use by 2020. New renewable electricity production is supported through the co-operative el-certificate scheme. Of the total capacity in the system, Norway is financing 13.20TWh, and Sweden 15.20TWh. 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. From 2021, Norwegian projects will no longer be eligible for el-certificates. Sweden continues with the scheme through to 2030 with an additional 18TWh target. The Norwegian Ministry of Petroleum and Energy has tasked the Water Resources and Energy Directorate (NVE) with providing a framework for future build-out of on shore wind. No such plans have been made for offshore wind. Nonetheless, the ocean energy law (Havenergilova), regulating offshore wind in Norway, calls for zones to be opened to licensing applications. The NVE has presented an assessment of areas to be considered for offshore wind. In answering a call from Parliament, the government in the 2018 budget said it would clarify which areas it will be possible to open to license-applications by the end of 2017. Previously Parliament has asked for a support scheme for demonstrator projects by 2017, and this process is still pending. The Federation of Norwegian Industries, Norwegian Shipowners’ Association and NORWEA on November 9th 2017 presented a list of 16 points that should be part of a comprehensive strategy on offshore wind.

18

The Norwegian offshore wind market There are no commercial offshore wind farms in operation or under construction in Norway. In addition to the 2.30MW HyWind floating demonstrator, two other 10MW demonstrator concessions exist in the waters around 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 license in the Norwegian Sea, named Havsul I.

Norway in offshore wind While no domestic market exists, 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 has taken over operations. 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, anchoring five 6MW turbines at 96-101 metre depth at the HyWind Scotland site north-east of Aberdeen in the North Sea. Statoil co-owns the HyWind Scotland project with UAE-based energy company Masdar. Norwegian companies are represented in the market for – among other – jack-ups for installation, the building of service vessels, crane and access equipment, production planning and control software as well as weather forecasting. However, many relevant Norwegian companies remain outside the international OW market – NORWEA and others are calling for the rapid realisation of a demonstrator project in Norwegian waters.

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 parks, 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. Furthermore the ‘in-shore’ project of ‘Westermeerwind’ was realised in 2016 in the IJsselmeer lake and has a capacity of 100MW. Gemini, 85 kilometres north of the Netherlands, became fully operational in 2017 with an installed capacity of 600MW.

20

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 6 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. Shell, Eneco en Diamond Generating (Mitsubishi) have won Borssele Wind Farm Sites III and IV. The next tender round for the Hollandse Kust Zuid Wind Farm Zone will offer two 350 MW projects for development. This tender will close at the end of December 2017. 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 3500 MW 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 2016.

RenewableUK Offshore wind is an essential part of the UK’s current electricity mix, and a vital force for powering its future economy. With over 5.80GW in operation, offshore wind generates five per cent of UK electricity, enough to power over four million homes, and is expected to generate ten per cent by 2020. By 2030, it has the potential to supply over a third of the UK’s power needs. Offshore wind companies are investing 17.50 billion pounds into the UK between now and 2021. This makes offshore one of the UK’s largest infrastructure programmes and enables a growing domestic supply chain, ensuring that the UK reaps the benefits of its role as a global leader in offshore wind.

2017 was an exciting year and a reminder of what innovative industry can achieve with sustained Government support. With the launch of the Clean Growth Strategy and the confirmation of 557 million pounds for Contracts for Difference auctions, the Government sent a strong signal that it wants offshore wind to continue delivering largescale low-carbon infrastructure – growing a competitive local supply chain across the country. Industry is currently working hard with Government to deliver an ambitious sector deal which will place offshore wind at the heart of the energy system of the future. In September 2017, the UK Government announced the results of its latest Contracts for Difference auction with prices as low as 57.50 pounds per megawatt hour. Three offshore wind projects with a total capacity of 3,196MW won support. The winning projects are Ørsted’s Hornsea 2 off the coast of Yorkshire, Innogy’s Triton Knoll off the coast of Lincolnshire, and EDPR and ENGIE’s Moray off the northeast coast of Scotland. The prices in these auctions are almost half the level of the first auction in 2015. This step change in cost reduction is politically significant; offshore wind is now cheaper than new gas and new nuclear.

22

2017 was a massive year for delivery. Ørsted’s 260MW Burbo Bank Extension and Statoil, Statkraft and Masdar’s 402MW Dudgeon project both became operational this year. Six projects (Beatrice, Blyth Offshore Demonstrator, Galloper, Race Bank, Rampion and Walney Extension) are all under construction. These six projects alone will deliver a further 2,600MW to UK offshore capacity. 2017 also marked the delivery of the world’s first floating offshore wind farm, with Statoil’s 30MW Hywind project opening. Scotland is now looking to build on this with further floating offshore projects under development or being planned. RenewableUK, as the UK’s leading energy body, is at the forefront of work to support this industry.

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 metre length, which can be launched resp. taken ashore via synchrolift. The revolutionary SWATH@A&R concept presents a superior alternative to conventional hullforms due to its unique seakeeping and manoeuvring 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 in the North Sea with a significant wave height of up to 2.50 metre. 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.

Bibby were 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.

• 6  0 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.

Offshore wind in North West Europe

CMS_LawTax_Pantone_28-100.eps

Over the past 25 years offshore wind has become an integral part of the European energy mix. More than 3GW of new offshore wind capacity was commissioned in Europe during 2015. This brought the cumulative installed capacity to more than 11GW at the end of 2015, most of it in the North Sea, making Northern Europe a frontrunner in offshore wind.

CMS is a full service international law firm. With 74 offices in 42 countries across Europe and beyond, we are the sixth largest law firm in the world. CMS has been in the forefront of the developments in the energy sector, advising on a large number of groundbreaking deals in a number of jurisdictions worldwide. For more information see:

www.cms.law

Recent tender awards in Germany, the Netherlands and Denmark show that offshore wind energy is rapidly improving its competitive position compared to conventional generation. The industry has made important structural cost reductions and has reached its cost reduction objectives for 2020 well ahead of schedule.

While there are similarities between some of these markets, there are also important differences. Location-specific factors vary – such as distance from shore and water depth – as does legislation governing spatial planning, permits, subsidy mechanisms and grid connection.

Looking ahead, we see that many countries aim to increase their offshore wind capacity. Targets for the main offshore wind markets in Northern Europe – Belgium, Denmark, France, Germany, the Netherlands and the UK – add up to 20GW in 2020. The North Sea is expected to remain the main region for offshore deployment in the coming years, and significant developments are also foreseen in the Baltic Sea and the Irish Sea.

This article is based on excerpts from the chapters on Belgium, France and the Netherlands in the CMS e-guide to offshore wind in Northern Europe. The article offers top-level facts, designed to help you get an overall picture of the stage of development and prospects in these three countries. The CMS e-guide contains much more detail and information on technical aspects to help investors make informed decisions.

Belgium Belgium aims to have a total installed offshore wind capacity of up to 2,280MW in operation by 2020. To date, four offshore wind farms are operational – C-Power, Belwind 1 & 2 and Northwind – with a total capacity of 877MW. Five other offshore wind projects with a total capacity up to 1,500MW were licensed in 2014–2015 and should be operational by 2020 (Norther, Rentel, Mermaid, Northwester 2 and Seastar). Offshore wind farms are supported by green certificates (GCs) issued by CREG, the federal market regulator. GCs can be sold to electricity suppliers or to Elia, the Belgian transmission system operator (TSO). In the latter case a guaranteed minimum price applies, as determined by the Belgian


Federal Government. Additional support measures include: preferential balancing tariffs; an investment guarantee in case of withdrawal of an authorisation, permit or permission, or cessation of the project for reasons not attributable to the project; and financial support for the offshore transmission cable. Under the current regime, offshore wind projects must have an individual connection contract with the TSO. However, it is envisaged that future offshore wind farms will connect to a new Belgian offshore grid. The legal framework for this offshore grid, adopted in 13 July 2017, sets an obligation to connect to the offshore grid and includes penalties for interruptions. Its entry into force is currently suspended until the necessary Royal decrees are adopted in 2018. All tender procedures are currently closed, and the Belgian Federal Government has not designated any additional zones to offshore wind. Due to the recent significant drop in prices awarded to offshore wind farms in the Netherlands (Borssele) and in Germany, the Secretary of State considered recalling the concessions granted to Northwester II, Mermaid and Seastar. This option was set aside, however, as the Federal State and the concession holders agreed on new supporting conditions due to be implemented in 2018. France France has officially two offshore wind energy targets: • 500MW of installed fixed-bottom offshore wind capacity by 2018 and 3,000MW by 2023, plus 500-6,000MW of fixed-bottom offshore wind capacity awarded through tenders by 2023. • 100MW of installed other maritime energies (floating offshore wind and tidal wave energy) and 200-2,000MW of awarded other maritime energies through tenders by 2023.

Expected projects in the near future are: Dunkirk (third call for tender for the seventh offshore wind area expected to be awarded in 2018, for 500-600MW); and likely a fourth call for tender - Oléron, announced by the former Minister of Ecology, Sustainable Development and Energy but not yet tendered. These projects will be governed by a new premium support scheme introduced in 2016, in accordance with EU Energy and Environmental State Aid Guidelines of 28 June 2014. Under this scheme, the generators shall sell their electricity on the market, and EDF (reimbursed by the State) shall pay a premium if the tariff set by the winner of the tender is higher than the market price, or, vice versa, benefit from the payment made by the generator. Offshore wind projects must enter into several contracts with RTE, the transmission system operator. A new compensation scheme specific for offshore wind farm developers shall apply to all offshore wind farms in case of delay in grid connection, and an indemnification scheme shall apply for projects not yet awarded. France will not achieve its offshore wind objectives, as legal proceedings have slowed down many projects. But efforts are continuing towards a simplification of the legal framework, through several bills currently under discussion. The new Government is expected to publish an amended roadmap for France’s energy transition by the end of 2018. The Netherlands The Dutch Energy Agreement for Sustainable Growth – agreed in 2014 between parties including the Dutch government, environmental and nature protection organisations and energy companies – has been an important driver for the development of offshore wind parks in the Netherlands. While there was some prior activity in the field of offshore wind, resulting in approximately 1,000MW offshore wind capacity in operation and under

development, the Energy Agreement announced an increase in offshore wind energy capacity to 4,450MW in 2023. For this purpose, the Dutch state has developed a new legislative framework of five phased tenders, each for 700MW, to take place from 2015 to 2019. A prerequisite of a 40 per cent cost reduction over this five-tender period was achieved in the first tender. At the time of writing (December 2017) the third tender is open. Unlike the first two tenders – in which subsidy and wind permits were awarded to the party tendering for the lowest subsidy – the third tender (for sites I and II of the Hollandse Kust (zuid) Wind Farm Zone) will follow the German precedent and be without subsidies. If this tender does not yield acceptable bids, a substitute tender procedure, including subsidy, will start along the lines of the previous two tenders. The new offshore wind parks will be connected to an offshore grid developed and operated by Dutch transmission system operator TenneT TSO. A statutory compensation scheme applies in case of unavailability or a delay in completion of the offshore grid. Under the new coalition agreement, the Netherlands intends to roll out new offshore wind farm sites with a total annual capacity of 1GW between 2023-2030. After 2030 this rollout pace may be reduced to 700MW per year.

Further information We hope you found the information in this article useful. Further details on the three jurisdictions covered here, as well as information on the market in Denmark, is available in the CMS e-guide at eguides.cmslegal.com/offshore. We will be updating the e-quide in the coming months with articles from Germany and the UK. Please check back at the link or join our energy industry-dedicated page on LinkedIn where you will be notified when we publish new chapters. 51

Six offshore wind areas were tendered through the first two calls for tenders, with a total capacity of around 2,930MW. These parks are not expected to become

operational before 2020 at the very earliest. They shall benefit from feed-in tariffs for a period of 20 years.

Damen Offshore Wind The best tools at sea Damen Offshore Wind Vessels aim to support both energy companies and offshore contractors at every stage of an offshore wind farm’s lifecycle: development, installation, operations and maintenance. Damen has been working hard to introduce new designs, showing that they seriously 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-towork’ vessel able to stay at sea for one month supporting wind turbine operations, providing 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 provides 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 metre 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 four jack-ups, the DG JACK 6136 P, 7140P, 5632P and 14350P, with the capability


with the high standard VFD controlled GMSC jacking system for smooth and safe operation. With a total leg length of ca 107 metre DG JACK 14350 P can stand in a waterdepth up to 65 metre. The accommodation is suitable for 70 persons in single berth cabins and can be increased to 130 persons in double berth cabins. 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. 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 case for JACK is clear. FCS 2710 Damen’s Fast Crew Supplier (FCS) 2710 has been hailed as a ‘game-changer’ in the industry. 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.

to operate at 60, 80 and 55 metres of water depth respectively.

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.

Wind & Offshore Lifting Factor (WOLF) The Damen WOLF is a new platform able to work across the offshore renewable and non-renewables markets as well as in decommissioning. With a crane capacity of 2,500 tonnes, the new vessel will perform installation of wind turbine foundations. Its multimarket versatility means the WOLF can also install and decommission fixed oil & gas structures in shallow water as well as mooring systems and subsea structures. Damen Shipyards Group Damen Shipyards Group operates more than 33 shipyards and related companies worldwide. Consistent quality and short delivery times, due to standardised designs, modular construction and keeping vessels in stock, are Damen hallmarks. Proven technology, reliable performance and continuous (scientific) research enable Damen to offer customers innovative vessels with great Total Cost of Ownership. Damen’s portfolio encompasses different types of tugs, workboats, high-speed craft, fast ferries, and cargo vessels, all of in-house design. In addition to the series-built, standardtype vessels, Damen is also active in the designing and building specialised workboats and patrol vessels, such as buoy laying vessels, pipe-laying barges, naval and patrol vessels and other large seagoing workboats. In addition to shipbuilding Damen offers supporting services, such as Damen Technical Cooperation (i.e. vessel packages for local building), repair and maintenance services (incl. spare parts), asset management systems, customer finance and crew training programmes.

The DG JACK 14350 P is a new entry to the range. It has a capacity to carry three complete 10MW wind turbine installations including complete towers, nacelles and blades. The crane of the DG JACK 14350 P has a capacity of 1,250 tonnes at a height of 135 metre above the working deck – 160 metre above sea level for installing towers and and complete nacelles nacelles. For installing monopiles the crane can also lift 2,000 tonnes at 110 metre above deck.DG JACK 14350 P is equipped

Damen’s R&D department invested a great deal of time improving the design of a conventional catamaran so that the FCS 2710 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.

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 2710 is extremely versatile, as can be seen by the recent applications of the vessel across the spectrum of the offshore industries.

Olsen Windcarrier builds on a marine heritage spanning 170 years to provide bespoke construction, installation and operations & maintenance services to the offshore wind sector. Established in 2008, the company has Norwegian roots, an international reach and the benefit of close links with Fred. Olsen related companies. These links give clients access to 1,200 highly skilled personnel and services for the key elements in the construction and operation & maintenance (O&M) of an offshore wind farm through single points of contact.

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

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


Working with related companies Global Wind Service, Natural Power and ZephIR Lidar – Fred. Olsen Windcarrier offers the full range of their specialist services. This includes innovative tailored services for construction with skilled project management and engineering, jack-ups, crew transfer vessels (CTVs) and highly trained personnel. And in 2017, a more structured alliance was announced, creating an unparalled, dedicated O&M service offering with inspections, major component exchange, service campaigns, blade repair, high voltage management, repair and repowering. There modern fleet boasts two of the hardest working, flexible jack-up vessels in the industry: Brave Tern and Bold Tern. The sister vessels underwent extensive upgrades in 2016 to extend the jacking legs by 14 metres, up to 92.40 metres long. The cranes were prepared for a boom extension of up to 20 metres, and the lifting height is now 120 metres from the main deck. The upgrades ensured the vessels were set to play an historic role in the installation of the first offshore wind turbines in the US, Block Island Offshore Wind Farm. Five GE nacelles were transported across the Atlantic with US flagged feeder barges transporting the towers and blades from shore. The project was safely completed ahead of schedule in just 70 days.

While sister vessel Bold Tern was busy installing Siemens 6MW turbines at Veja Mate Offshore Wind Farm also in Germany, which was followed with further installation work at Galloper off the UK coast. Global Wind Service installation technicians were key to the completion of all three 2017 projects. Fred. Olsen Windcarrier’s also includes seven CTVs. The Bayard class vessels are purpose designed, Norwegian built, Danish flagged and classed by DNVGL ensuring that Fred. Olsen Windcarrier fulfills requirements for quality shipping with proper certification. In 2017 they achieved 1,000 days without a lost time incident while conducting 39,605 landings, 140,570 transfers and with crews working 205,934 hours.

Three of the Bayard vessels were solidly employed in UK waters at Walney 1+2 offshore wind farm, where they
will continue for the duration of their threeyear contract. The remainder of the CTV fleet has been busy in the waters of Belgium and Denmark and out of German ports, to the North and Baltic Seas. Industry heavy­weights MHI Vestas, Siemens, A2Sea, Ballast Nedam and ENBW are regular clients. Fred. Olsen Windcarrier has also under­ taken several short O&M fast track projects across Germany and in the UK, with pro­ject assignment to execution within a short timeframe. “These O&M projects were carried out smoothly and efficiently and the company looks forward to building on this experience with the new alliance of Fred. Olsen related companies.”

To install the larger wind turbines larger and dedicated equipment was developed, leading to the realisation of the world’s largest self-propelled jack-up: the GustoMSC NG-14000X ‘Seajacks Scylla’.

From 2010 up to February 2016 a total of 2,614 offshore wind turbines have been installed in the North Sea. 77 per cent of these wind turbines have been installed with a GustoMSC designed installation unit. By 2020, offshore wind is projected to even grow to a total installed capacity of 24.60GW. Installation platforms at sea remain key in order to carry out the necessary installation work in an efficient and safe manner.

Huisman Innovative solutions for wind turbine installation Building on the successful operation of existing Huisman products for the installation of offshore wind turbines and foundations, Huisman developed a dedicated range of cranes for the offshore wind industry. Huisman has built the world’s largest Leg Encircling Crane for Seajacks Scylla and is currently building a 1,600mt crane for Van Oord’s Aeolus. Besides these we also build dedicated foundation installation vessels such as for the Boskalis Bokalift 1. In addition, Huisman is developing motion compensation systems for floating installation and maintenance works on the future’s wind turbines.

Offshore wind installation cranes The product range for customised offshore wind installation cranes is a result of decades of experience in designing and building heavy lift offshore cranes, complemented by operational know-how of our clients, which is incorporated to improve our designs.

transport and installation crane vessel. The delivery of the crane is to take place at the end of 2017. Wind Turbine Shuttle The Wind Turbine Shuttle, a dynamically positioned, fast sailing (14 knots) SWATH-type 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 for installation of wind turbines.

73

The 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 small tail swing of the Huisman cranes, our cranes come with electric variable frequency drives, unparalleled lifting heights and an optimized minimum radius for increased workability.

As an example of the success of these new cranes, Huisman built the world’s largest Leg Encircling Crane to date, capable to lift 1,540mt at 34m for ‘Seajacks’’ jack-up vessel Seajacks Scylla which entered into service in 2016. Also in 2016, Huisman was awarded the 1,600mt Leg Encircling Crane for Van Oord and The 3,000mt Offshore Mast Crane for Boskalis. The 1,600mt crane will replace the existing 900mt crane onboard their offshore installation jack-up ‘Aeolus’. The new crane will enable Van Oord to install bigger and heavier foundations and turbines for offshore wind farms. The crane will be delivered and installed in April of 2018. The 3,000mt Offshore Mast Crane for Boskalis is installed onboard one of its existing F-class heavy transport vessels, which will be converted into an offshore

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 well-balanced 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 1,500 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 metre. 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

Managing Director

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 wind 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,

technical and project management of the supply chain and installation requirements to deliver the components and equipment offshore: efficiently, innovatively, effectively and safely. MPI Consultants have engineered “the solution” for in excess of 1,400 offshore turbines, foundations, TPs and array cables. These skills and experiences have been drawn from a variety of in-house professionals from the maritime, construction, oil & gas and project management backgrounds and transferred into the offshore wind industry. When combined, we provide the clients with the knowledge and solid performance through the complete life cycle of the project. Whether MPI Consultants’ input is part of a FEED study, supply chain review, onshore logistics, offshore installation, vessel or

marine management, MPI Consultants has the resources to deliver the results. Centred at the MPI Offshore-office in Stokesley, MPI Consultants can offer a full range of project management and engineering services to the exacting standards and demanded by the offshore industry. MPI Consultants has in the past also provided bespoke management specialists to support and strengthen project teams of our clients. Manpower With over a decade of invaluable experience installing of offshore wind turbines, MPI have relied upon not only the own capacity of the WTIV fleet it owns and operates, but also on the dedicated and professional teams of construction crews that make MPI a world-class offshore construction contractor. 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 UK, South Boats IOW Limited. The current fleet includes three 15-metre, four 17-metre vessels, four 19-metre, one 20-metre and two 21.85-metre version, 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.

93

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 water depth of up to 12.50 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 pilot or tug services.

Offshore Terminal South: 100,000 m² for the installation of Windfarms Completed in 2013, the Offshore Terminal South (OT-South) proved its capacity in 2014/2015 during the installation of the OWF “EnBW Baltic 2”. In 2016/2017 the terminal was used for the delivery, storage, preassembly and transhipment of 70 wind turbines, including their foundations, for the 350MW “Wikinger” windfarm. The project was characterised by several special features: The assembly of a rotor star on the terminal area, the ship to ship transfer of 70 jacket foundations, weighing up to 600 tonnes each and – finally - Jack-up operations of the installation vessel Brave Tern on four brand new jack-up pads. The pads have been established by an innovative vibro compaction campaign

and proved their full functionality during 28 Jack-up’s taking place in the installation phase of “Wikinger”. A quay length of about 600 metres, a surface load of max. 50 tonnes and experienced port staff are ensuring safe and efficient terminal operations. Moreover, projects being realised on the OT-South are benefiting from a 1,500m² warehouse and a 740m² insulated warehouse. Further Port Extension: Offshore Terminal North and O&M Port Another 120,000m² combined with a 20t/m² heavy duty quay on the Northern Terminal will be made available to the 385MW OWF “Arkona Becken Südost”, which will be operated by E.ON. Installation of the OWF will take place in 2018 and 60 WTG’s with a 6+ MW

capacity will be delivered, assembled and transhipped via the OT-North. For this purpose berth 10 was extended and now comprises 125 metres. Completion of the installation of “Arkona Becken Südost” is scheduled for end of 2018. Furthermore Mukran Port is about to complete it’s offshore portfolio by constructing a new O&M port. CTV’s, tugs and supply vessels will be able to use berths 1 and 1a in the future. The berths are located close to the OTSouth and comprise a total length of approx. 303 metres. It will become fully operational in 2017/beginning of 2018. WELCOME TO YOUR OFFSHORE BASE PORT SASSNITZ-MUKRAN!

Offshore Boarding

To improve the safety and efficiency of your offshore operations we developed tools for the safe transportation of crew and cargo Offshore Boarding B.V. is a new company. However, our management team consists of highly experienced specialists, with a proven track record in developing and producing innovative products for the offshore industry. 

Offshore Boarding B.V. Huis ter Lucht 26 3155 EB Maasland The Netherlands T +31 (0)10 591 11 57 F +31 (0)10 591 11 89 E info@offshoreboarding.com I www.offshoreboarding.com Offshore Boarding B.V. Contact: Ch. Goddijn Sales Director

The best ideas are often said to be the simplest, at Offshore Boarding we have taken a simple idea to completely reimagine the way loads are attached to a crane hook. Traditional methods require a manual connection using slings and a crane hook, with crew members standing by to connect or disconnect the load, often working at height, and particularly in the offshore environment, in unstable conditions. The risk of accidents and injury during these operations is ever present and delays in transfers have a negative impact on many types of projects.

With the drive for ‘hands-free’ systems

in the offshore working environment, Offshore Boarding has developed a system that is an innovation in safety and simplicity. With multiple applications, from container lifts to personnel and crew boat lifts. Offshore Boarding has developed a transfer process that is fully ‘hands-free’ which means safer, faster and more cost effective handling of offshore transfers.

97

Offshore Boarding was established in 2016 to develop a number of ‘hands-free’ technical systems, which increase the operating window, safety and efficiency of the transfer process; connecting,

lifting and disengagement, without any personnel involved at the point of connection and disconnection from the crane. The solution is simple and involves the crane operator lowering a steel ball into a funnel, which activates a trapping mechanism. The cargo can then be lifted and placed in a new location upon which the crane operator can disengage the trapping mechanism. At no time during the lifting operation can the trapping mechanism open and no crew is required to make the connection or disconnection with the cargo.

Its Integrated Management System ensures quality, safety and protection of the environment are at the forefront of everything we do. Its experienced personnel will ensure that your project is completed safely and on time. ISO 9001 and ISM accredited.

OTS’ operations base is in Brixham in Devon. Since 2012, they have launched seven vessels all of which are 18.5 resin infused catamarans with Rolls Royce jets.

Offshore Turbine Services Limited 3, Maypool Building, Dartside Quay TQ5 0GD Brixham, Devon

These vessels are very economical to run and produce much lower CO2 emissions in comparison to even small aluminium CTVs. They have a shallow draft and can be used close inshore whilst also having a moveable wheelhouse which allows them to be configured for optimum operational capability allowing more deck space fore or aft as required for dedicated workshops or cargo. Five of the vessels are certified to MCA Cat 2 and the last two additions to the fleet to Cat 1 and are capable of 25 knots and only use 150 litres per hour at a cruising speed of 22 knots. OTS has a dedicated service department available 24 hours with rapid response teams across UK and Europe and each vessel has a full range of key spares and skippers and crew are trained to follow a pro-active maintenance regime in order to ensure vessel downtime is minimised and this has resulted in a 99.30 per cent vessel on contract uptime statistic since 2012.

Our product range include components for: • use in and around wind turbines; • installation; • during transport; • storage of components and • maintenance and repair. Polyurethane specialist As a polyurethane specialist, Ridderflex’s strength is developing and producing polyurethane products. Polyurethane is a unique material. We can adapt the material properties to the application of the product. There are no other materials in our product range, that are so flexible and versatile. Experience shows us that

PU products can be the solution to numerous technical problems. Recent projects include: • PU dampening pads: an excellent alternative for all elastomeric bearings on the market. It allows higher loads without the use of steel reinforcements and different hardnesses can be combined in one pad. These pads are developed to dampen the impact loads during jacket set down on preinstalled foundation piles. • PU hang-offs and plugs: our hang-off is a tool that is used on the transition piece to lead the cable through the cable entry. The hang-off prevents damage to the transition piece during these activities. The plug prevents damage to the cable when it is pulled through the cable entry under seawater.

Ridderflex products for the offshore wind industry include: • bend restrictors; • centralisers; • cradle lining; • cross-overs; • dampening pads; • fenders; • gaskets and seals; • grout seals; • hang-offs and plugs; • pile gripper lining; • plugs; • profiles; • seafastening solutions.

large generator is needed which leads to a fast and inexpensive operation. SMST’s gangways are immediately available. The M series is part of a range of four types of Telescopic Access Bridges, which are developed for walk-to-work applications and long-term connection between offshore structures and accommodation service vessels. The Telescopic Access Bridges, divided in a S, M, L and XL version, vary in length from four up to 58 metre and can be active or passive motion compensated. The entire range of systems can also be deployed for cargo handling. Developments on the range of bridges are ongoing and responsive to market’s needs.

Access & cargo towers Transferring personnel and cargo safely at various heights With the Access & Cargo Tower, SMST is combining a gangway and tower with elevator for safe transfer of cargo and personnel. The SMST equipment enables safe and stepless transfer of personnel and cargo from vessel to offshore structure, up to a significant wave height of 3.50 metre. The landing height adjustment system of the access & cargo tower travels to platform heights up to 23 metre. SMST´s remote controlled cargo transporter can be supplied to transport cargo of up to 600 kilogrammes from below deck, via different deck levels, to the offshore structures. The system’s access bridge incorporates active and passive motion compensation. Low operational expenses, including power consumption of less than 100kW, are key assets of the access system.

Tidal Transit Offshore logistics and vessel operator Tidal Transit, operating out of Docking in North Norfolk, has risen to the challenge of one of UK’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 UK 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 and further afield.

The vessels’ specifications greatly exceed the current fleet being used for the same purpose in the UK. 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 UK’s forthcoming round three wind farms. Each of the 20-metre CTVs provides up to 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 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 10,000 kilogrammes of tools, equipment and spares, and the Guerra crane on the fore deck with a lifting capacity of 1,025 kilogrammes at 6.90-metre caters for long reach loading and unloading. The vessels are equipped with a moon pool for camera surveys and grab sampling. Since their arrival in the UK, 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 2016/17 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. Tidal Transit is working on partnerships in new offshore wind markets globally so wherever your project is, give us a call!

marine operations engineers all have practical on-site experience with large offshore installation projects. Theoretical experience Vuyk aims for practical solutions and designs, but also recognises that theoretical analyses are often necessary. Vuyk therefore has a team of engineers in-house with in-depth experience with complex hydrodynamic and finite element calculations. Track record Over the years Vuyk’s operational engineering activities in offshore wind has expanded to the design and modification of jack-ups and installation vessels, second opinions on suitability of equipment, and the design of complete new equipment.

In-house developments Vuyk’s 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 its clients. An example hereof is the so-called Boom Based Blade Manipulator. This is a blade handling tool which increases the allowable wind speed for installation. Other examples are an in-house developed jacking system, and the development of a method to install a full turbine or a foundation with a floating vessel. Vuyk is small enough to be flexible and large enough to handle your complex projects.

With our fleet of 41 dedicated Crew Transfer Vessels and over 15 years experience we have the largest fleet of specialist crew transfer vessels for the offshore wind industry globally and we can offer our clients the most suitable vessels with an optimum use for their project. New Windcat MK3.5 In August 2017 Windcat Workboats have launched the first vessel in their new MK3.5 series: “Windcat 40”. The sixth vessel in the fleet of over 22 metre length. Following extensive research and development studies in all aspects of the

vessel, the sea trials and first wind farm visits have proven extremely successful. Being part of the industries LCOE reduc­ tion goals, Windcat has put signifi­cant effort into developing a vessel which fits to the ever evolving client requirements for comfort and performance delivered in a cost- and fuel-efficient way. The latest technologies and regulations have been adopted to create a state of the art vessel. The hull shape has been studied in detail in order to optimise for efficiency, comfortable see keeping and performance. This has resulted in a highly efficient 23 metre vessel, with a top speed of 31 knots using only two 720kW engines, setting a new industry standard for efficiency. This results in low emissions and low fuel consumption

Windgrip System To improve the safety of offshore transfers and to increase the accessibility of wind turbines, we have developed the Windgrip System (Patent Pending) which is currently installed on 24 vessels. 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. 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.

Using our Wind Turbine Doctor tool we provide value along the whole operational life of the offshore wind farm, from design and financing, over construction, O&M towards lifetime extension and repowering.

As such operators can optimally limit the negative effects of ageing and deterioration on new and existing structures. The monitoring example: The award winning Wind Turbine Doctor represents an integrated tool for reducing risk and costs in offshore wind. Based on existing data sources such as Scada, enriched with specific sensor

data it will continuously track the ‘state of health’ of a structure and identify in a very early stage the onset of structural or operational problems. The focus is on individual structures as well as farmwide phenomena. This allows early, low cost repairs, optimal preparation of the repair operation, but also a followup 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. Relevant parameters are: fatigue, corrosion, cable behaviour, dynamics, stresses, cracking and deformations, bolt tension, scour. Contact us and find out how we can provide a tailored solution for optimal, long lasting risk and cost reduction in your project.
