Deep Helder

SeaMar has signed a contract extension with MMT for the Deep Helder offshore support vessel, which has been deployed off the US East Coast for survey work at Ørsted’s offshore wind sites. The new contract has a duration of two years with a one-year renewal option and follows the six-month contract under which the vessel started geophysical seabed surveys at the Revolution Wind and South Fork project sites in June. Deep Helder commenced its previous contract in May and will now start work under the new one in direct continuation of the its previously agreed scope.


Green Jade

The Green Jade floating heavy lift installation vessel, owned by CSBC-DEME Wind Engineering,  will be equipped with a system for recovery of green electricity from the waste heat of its engines. German company Orcan Energy, specialising in technology for conversion of waste heat into electricity, will deliver eight of its efficiency PACKs which will recover 100 % green electricity from the waste heat of the engines of Green Jade. The four installed dual-fuel engines will be each equipped with two efficiency PACKs.



The recovery and repair of the crane that collapsed on board the installation vessel Orion during lifting trials in May are progressing at Liebherr facilities in Rostock. The company started working on getting the crane back into service in September, when the recovery project began. The steel construction work also kicked off then, since both the 142-metre-long crane jib and parts of the A-frame need to be manufactured from scratch. The recovery work is expected to be completed by the end of this year, while the repair project will be finished in the course of 2021.

MetOcean-Works to support Arklow Bank

SSE Renewables has engaged MetOceanWorks to deliver detailed metocean design criteria for the Arklow Bank Wind Park. The project will utilise high-resolution modelling techniques and will implement the latest and most robust industry-standard practices. MetOceanWorks will be supported in delivery of the project by Cooper Marine Advisors and Forristall Ocean Engineering Inc., providing expertise in coastal processes and shallow-water waves, respectively. SSE Renwables' Arklow Bank lease area is situated 13 km off the Co. Wicklow coastline, to the east of Arklow, and covers an area approximately 27 km long and 2.5k m wide.

A Finnish municipality has introduced plans for a new offshore wind farm. Metsähallitus, a state-owned enterprise which manages and protects state-owned land and water areas in Finland, has proposed building a state owned offshore wind farm in the Korsnäs municipality, Ostrobothnia region, Finland.
An offshore wind farm could finally cover the gap caused by the closure of Outokumpu's mine in the 1970s. Korsnäs' municipal board will consider the planning initiative at its meeting on 23rd November. If the initiative is approved, this will be the starting point for extensive investigative work.

Danish Developers have been given extra time to prepare the feasibility and environmental report for the Frederikshavn Offshore Wind Demo.
The Ministry of Energy, Utilities and Climate awarded an exploration permit to European Energy A / S in December 2018 to conduct feasibility studies for a new offshore wind demonstration project.  An important purpose of the feasibility studies is to collect data and lights for use in assessing the potential impact of the offshore wind farm on environment, nature, air traffic etc. The results of the feasibility studies will be compiled in an environmental impact report.

CfD round 4 to source up to 12 GW of renewables

The UK government has set out its plans for the fourth round of the Contracts for Difference (CfD) scheme. Scheduled to open in late 2021, the fourth round aims to increase the capacity of renewable energy from the 5.8 GW achieved in the last round to up to 12 GW. The CfD scheme is the government’s primary method of supporting low-carbon electricity. It encourages investment in renewable energy by providing projects with a stable income, while protecting consumers from paying increased costs when electricity prices are high.

Positive outlook likely for Saint Brieuc wind farm

The French Council of State met last week to discuss the final appeal lodged by the Association for the Protection of Sites of Erquy and Surrounding Sites (ASPE) against Iberdrola's Saint Brieuc offshore wind farm. The appeal concerns the technical modification of the wind farm and the change of 8 MW Adwen wind turbines to an 8 MW Siemens Gamesa model. The applicants claim that this qualifies as a substantial change and requires new authorisation and cancellation of the original authorisations of 20th December 2017.

european commission raises offshore wind goal

To help meet the EU's goal of climate neutrality by 2050, the European Commission has presented the EU Strategy on Offshore Renewable Energy. The Strategy proposes to increase Europe's offshore wind capacity from its current level of 12 GW to at least 60 GW by 2030 and to 300 GW by 2050. The Commission aims to complement this with 40 GW of ocean energy and other emerging technologies such as floating wind and solar by 2050. To promote the scale-up of offshore energy capacity, the Commission will encourage cross-border cooperation between Member States on long term planning and deployment.

usa new jersey bpu aligns offshore wind plans

The New Jersey Board of Public Utilities (NJBPU) has positioned New Jersey to be the first state to fully align its offshore wind transmission goals with its regional grid operator’s planning process. In furtherance of these objectives, set out by Governor Phil Murphy’s goal of 7,500 MW of offshore wind energy by 2035, and by the Legislature, the Board formally requested the inclusion of this state public policy into the transmission planning process of PJM Interconnection, LLC (PJM) through a competitive solicitation process in what is known as the State Agreement Approach.
