Whitepaper: The Right Questions to Ask Before Installing a Floating Wind Farm
Moving from shore to deeper and deeper waters means a range of new complexities for installation and logistics for offshore wind that have to be managed. On the surface it all looks the same, but below the surface it is a completely different story. This whitepaper outlines how to leverage experience from the existing offshore energy sector to succeed in lowering the levelised cost of floating wind energy, including a guide to the 10 Key Questions to Ask During Planning.

Operations & Maintenance
In addition to turbines and floating structures, mooring system maintenance needs to be managed. Offshore regulations require subsea inspection at a minimum of every 2-5 years, depending on the system. From there, new mooring lines and anchors may need to be procured and installed over time. While Maersk Supply Service has been supporting operators in the energy sector with moorings management operations throughout our history, we also have the capabilities to support floating wind farms with inspection as well as planning and execution of mooring system maintenance services.
