Onsite Major Component Replacement Technologies for Floating Offshore Wind: the Status of the Industry

February 12, 2023

Onsite Major Component Replacement
Amidst the rapid developments the floating offshore wind industry is experiencing, this white paper intends to build a preliminary classification of floating wind heavy maintenance concept types under development. Through a high-level comparative assessment of assigned crane families and an overarching discussion on strategy considerations, this white paper hopes to inform the decision processes of key stakeholders in the field. The findings from this work feed into the wider discussions of WFO’s Floating Offshore Wind Committee (FOWC), where the insurability and bankability perspective reflects on the challenges of floating wind and the new technologies that aim to solve them. These cross-discipline conversations remind us of the
need to balance cost reductions and safety measures to preserve the risk perception of floating wind technologies, especially for the first commercial-scale projects.

The Hydrogen Economy

whitePaper | October 10, 2022

Climate change and geopolitical turmoil require a radical transformation of today’s fossil fuelbased economy into a renewable energy system. Electricity generation from wind and solar is subject to strong daily and seasonal fluctuations. The potential to produce green electricity also varies greatly geographically. In this context, hydrogen provides an optimal solution for bridging the gap between the volatile generation and the need to supply green energy on-demand across all sectors.
