New challenges call for new ideas. Recognising the unpredictability of the offshore environment and understanding that when it comes to solutions and equipment, one size doesn’t fit all, is an important key to success within the sector.
Offshore wind is a fast developing and ever-changing industry, and nowhere are the challenges greater felt than in engineering. One particular demand that has been on the increase in recent years is for larger jack-up vessels. The expected increase of weights of tower and turbines and the increased hub heights of the next generation turbines are considerable and exceed the capabilities of most of the existing fleet.
