11:40 AM How to support the wind turbine of the future?

  • Recent tender awards: trend of decreasing prices for offshore wind energy is continuing
  • Wind turbines are getting bigger and external conditions increase in complexity 
  • Enormous pressure on the designers and supply chain to come up with improved foundation designs and installation methods meeting all requirements
  • Challenges for future foundations, e.g. related to manufacturing, transport, installation, noise mitigation etc.
  • Ongoing innovations that aim to solve those challenges: pile driving and noise mitigation of large monopiles
  • Slip joint connection that will be implemented in the innovation site Borssele V: the first time a submerged slip joint is used on a full size wind turbine on a full commercial basis

1:40 PM Interactive Forum: Installation – Developers point of view – Marine installation point of view

• Factors that complicate or delay installations
• Ensuring the project is delivered to the highest standards, on time and on budget
• Change management
