The Right Questions to Ask Before Installing a Floating Wind Farm

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.

Floating wind turbine installation

The right marine capabilities to install floating wind

Examples of supporting track record

Towing and mooring operations is the DNA of Maersk Supply Service, as one of the largest operators of anchor handling tug supply vessels in the world. Over more than 50 years, we have been providing installation operations for mooring systems across various industries, involving all sorts of floaters, anchors and mooring systems in all water depths. Whether it’s installing floating wind turbines for a demonstration project, commercial wind farms, or for the electrification of offshore installations, we bring a marine perspective to all our projects in support of the energy sector.

Integrated project solutions – from start to finish

Maersk Supply Service delivers turn-key floating wind turbine installation projects, from planning to cable installation. We are equally ready to share our expertise through advisory services to support, for example, the optimisation of foundation interfaces for installation, as well as installation methodology reviews in accordance with specific marine conditions.

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.
