Changing conditions in offshore wind
With the increasing construction of offshore wind farms we are already starting to see projects taking place farther from the shore. This carries implications for the industry as a whole, bringing with it a fresh set of challenges. Forthcoming wind projects will be located in deeper waters, harsher environments with increased wave heights. Furthermore, the increased distance from the shore makes impractical the daily transportation of maintenance crews to and from the offshore wind park. Such challenges are driving innovation and the offshore wind industry is showing itself to be every bit as dynamic as the offshore oil and gas industry in responding to rapidly-changing needs. One such solution is Bibby WaveMaster 1.
