About the Event

The construction of an offshore wind farm is a complex and expensive process.  It involves the

transportation of high value assets such as the wind turbines, foundations, sub-stations and subsea

cables using large vessels and barges.  It is in the transportation and installation phases that there is

a risk of damage to assets and vessels which can be costly.  It is therefore important to look at ways

to manage and mitigate these risks for all parties involved.

In this webinar we will provide insight into the Offshore Wind and Renewables Industry and its future

growth.  It will consider the different types and sizes of turbines (fixed and floating), subsea array &

transmission cables, sea transportation of component parts, and types of installation and service

vessels.  The potential hazards to shipping and cargo securing will be highlighted.

Presented by: Jeremy Panes, Director/Naval Architect & James Anderson, Naval Architect
