About this talk

Testing the turbines that will make up the backbone of offshore round three has begun in earnest. The scale of these machines, such as the Samsung 7MW prototype*, only works to highlight the engineering and logistical challenge surrounding installing and maintaining these machines far out to sea. Many are voicing concerns around the lack of O&M capacity in the offshore fleet, and the need to reduce the cost of energy faster than currently, but what are the other challenges receiving less attention? Tune in to this Windpower Monthly webcast to hear experts discuss: · Trends in the offshore market: Deeper waters and further offshore. · State of the art vessel design: How fit for purpose specialised vessels are impacting cost of energy. · Solving the future challenges for offshore O&M This webcast is essential viewing for anyone with a vested interest in the offshore wind industry now, or in the coming years. http://www.windpowermonthly.com/article/1208766/samsung-7mw-set-narec-testing
