Optimizing offshore wind farm construction and maintenance operations with more accurate weather awareness insight

Offshore windfarm



Wind farms are expanding — especially offshore into deeper waters. The weather is harsh and less predictable farther from shore, risking safety and operational efficiency. Delays and repairs can easily cost millions. 

From construction to maintenance, the key to maximizing safety and efficiency in offshore wind farm operations is accurate and reliable weather insights. Forecasts simply don’t provide enough insights or timely warning of hazardous winds, lightning, and storms. 

Join us for this engaging and informative webinar, where we will be talking about how complete weather awareness gives decision makers the power to optimize their operations and improve safety. 

Learn how on-site weather observations and nowcasting can help: 

  • Optimize wind farm build-up times, accessibility and maintenance, especially for wind turbine installation vessels (WTIV) 
  • Ensure asset safety during loading, transportation, installation and maintenance 
  • Increase crew safety 
  • Reduce the total construction costs

Who should attend: Offshore wind farm owners, developers, contractors and operators, wind turbine installation vessel (WTIV) operators, offshore system integrators, ship designers and shipyards.
