To stay on track for the 1.5°C pathway of the Paris Agreement, an accelerated energy transition is essential. Efficient offshore energy infrastructure planning, incorporating novel methods, is crucial and requires transparent, industry-wide discussion. However, two main challenges emerge: (i) the often-overlooked integration of energy islands in...

Offshore wind energy is expected to be the most significant source of future electricity supply in Europe. Offshore wind farms are located far from the shores, requiring a fleet of various types of vessels to access sites when maintaining offshore wind turbines. The employment of the vessels is costly, accounting for the majority of the total...

Europe’s offshore wind capacity is expected to reach 450 GW by 2050, meeting 30% of Europe’s electricity demand. With the increase of installed capacity, the costs invested in O&M will also increase significantly considering O&M cost is one of the biggest contributors to life cycle costs. The improvement of O&M management for...

Energy transition is imperative to effectively address the pressing issue of climate change resulting from global warming. In this transition, offshore wind power assumes a pivotal role as a crucial and indispensable source of clean and renewable energy. Offshore benefits become more pronounced as the offshore locations progress far offshore. In...

Until recently, tenders in Europe were awarded to wind farm developers based on the highest auction prices or the lowest subsidized bids. The wind industry has suggested that non-price-related criteria should be considered for tenders, like plans to reduce greenhouse gas emissions. As a result of the sustainable tender criteria, greenhouse gas...

A study is conducted on the effects of tip-mounted rotors on a conventional Darrieus H-VAWT; this study is complementary to the X-rotor concept proposal. This proposal features a novel offshore wind turbine concept that utilises blade-mounted tip rotors to extract energy from the flow. Following a literature study phase, an experimental campaign...

During atypical droughts, power systems with a heavy reliance on hydropower risk increased greenhouse gas emissions if they are balanced with fossil-fired generation. This work investigates the role of offshore wind energy in reducing the vulnerability of power systems dependent on such hydrological patterns, thereby eliminating this emission...

One of the main cost drivers of an offshore wind power plant are the support structures of the wind turbines, it is therefore of primary importance to optimize their design. Among the support structures available, the concept most widely adopted is the monopile-based support structure, whose design is often fatigue-driven. Offshore structures...

To accommodate the growing demand for renewable energy, installation of new offshore wind energy capacity is increasing in many countries. New projects will be proposed for waters in which floating (sea) ice is a common occurrence in winter. Currently, projects remain limited to regions with mild ice conditions, such as the Southern Baltic Sea,...

The idea of shared mooring systems has been introduced in the offshore wind farm industry as an effort to lower the overall installation costs for floating offshore wind farms. The reason for building such plants is that using floating turbines allows them to move to deeper waters, reducing visual and environmental impact and allowing footprint...

Renewable forms of energy, and especially wind energy, have become an integral part of the energy infrastructure around the globe. However, the constant increase of installed wind capacity has put a strain on the selection of potential onshore locations for wind turbine installation. As a result, the wind industry is focusing on offshore...

The energy transition towards carbon neutrality requires a rapid electrification of all energy sectors by 2050. In the EU-27, the REPowerEU strategy, initiated in March 2022, is pursuing this target even more ambitiously. However, in order to achieve the aforementioned goals, the increasing demand for green hydrogen will...

During the lifetime of an offshore wind farm, the operation and maintenance (O&M) costs account for a large portion of the total expenses. This is mainly caused by the high cost of vessels. In order to increase the competitiveness of offshore wind compared to onshore wind and other renewable energy sources, it is essential to decrease the...

Floating photovoltaic (FPV) is an emerging concept. Potential is recognized in combining FPV and off­ shore wind farms to create an offshore wind and solar farm. One of the remaining uncertainties around the potential of an offshore wind and solar farm is the value of the operations and maintenance cost. As one of the main contributing factors...

Monopiles with large diameter (larger than 6 m) and low aspect ratio (less than 6) are increasingly used in offshore wind farms. These foundations demonstrate a rigid response under lateral loading. The validity of the existing design methods, that are based on small diameter flexible piles, has been questioned by both the industry and...

Offshore wind turbines are getting larger and are being installed in ever deeper waters. This requires increasingly stronger yet affordable foundations. The Tri-Suction Pile Caisson (TSPC) is a Wind Turbine Generator (WTG) foundation concept patented by SPT Offshore that requires a smaller amount of structural steel or concrete than a...

While offshore wind energy is showing enormous potential, effective approaches to enhance its economics are being sought at the same time. The design of maintenance strategy is a type of strategic decision-making for offshore wind farms, aiming to improve energy production and reduce maintenance expenses. As a complicated and challenging task...
