Presentation title:SC19: Is it synergy time? The era of offshore wind clusters
Abstract: After the first years of industry experience, significant O&M cost reductions related to supply chain and technology development have been achieved by the offshore wind industry. The following years have yet much to show and the time of synergies is around the corner. In this study, using industry proven computer modelling, DNV GL explores the potential cost reductions that UK based projects could achieve through the change of their access strategies (previously based on the solely use of crew transfer vessels) to the deployment of significantly more capable and purpose built Service Operations Vessels to service a cluster of projects.
Speaker bio: Fernando is a Senior Engineer at DNV GL with over 8 years’ experience on offshore wind project development including performance of: due diligence of several projects (fixed and floating projects around the world), O&M computer modelling, O&M strategy selection, weather window assessments, OpEx reviews, wind resource assessments, blade maintenance programme reviews, turbine inspections, energy production assessments and decommissioning studies. Fernando specializes in the O&M aspects of offshore wind projects, regularly reviewing and analyzing both technical and commercial aspects of O&M logistics including operational expenditure and technical availability of wind turbines, balance of plant and transmission assets.
