Twisties - A radical vessel concept to transform offshore wind farm installation

At £1 or £2/second, Wind Turbine Installation Vessels [WTIV] are too expensive to transport cargo to far offshore wind farms. “Feeder vessels” can bring components out to keep them operating; however, vessel-to-vessel transfer of large components offshore is difficult. Barges roll excessively & jack-up feeder vessels require multiple component lifts, with low wind-speed limits leading to significant waiting on weather delays.

The DNV GL “Twisties” concept allows RoRo transfers of complete turbines in a single operation and rapid sea-fastening using standard 20ft container-spaced “twistlocks”. A Fast Feeder Vessel could bring enough components out to supply several WTIVs and the system has potential to be faster and cheaper than conventional offshore wind farm installation methods.

Presenting experience
Chris Garrett, Senior Engineer, Offshore Wind Farm Installation, DNV GL, will present the "Twisties" concept at this Institution of Engineering and Technology (IET) organised event.
