In association with NorSea Group (UK) Ltd., Montrose Port Authority has participated in the Hywind Scotland floating wind project in the North Sea, the companies’ first in this sector.

The four-week campaign consisted of five port calls for the Normand Prosper, anchor handling tug supply vessel. After loading the chain and mooring equipment, the vessel delivered the mooring systems designed to support the Statoil’s floating wind farm project.

Walter Robertson, managing director of NorSea Group (UK) Ltd, said: “We were delighted to secure this project, and nominated Montrose Port Authority because of our quayside storage capacity and excellent working relationships with the local supply chain in and around the port. We have proven our capability and the suitability of Montrose Port for this significant offshore wind project, a first for both companies in this sector.”

The components for the project were assembled at NorSea’s Group Base in Stord, Norway, before being shipped to the project located off Peterhead, Scotland, while the mooring system for the five turbines was stored in Montrose Port.

Nik Scott-Gray, chief executive at Montrose Port Authority, said: “North Sea offshore wind is undoubtedly a growing market and this has instilled a sense of opportunity within the energy industry. Add to this our central location to east coast windfarms such as Inch Cape, Neart Na Gaoith and Seagreen Alpha and Bravo, and Montrose Port Authority becomes the ideal port of choice to support key offshore renewable operations.”

The 30MW Hywind Scotland Pilot Park recently received its final floating turbine[2], while the first electricity is expected to be produced in October.

ABB will install Onboard DC Grid power distribution onboard Louis Dreyfus Armateurs’ (LDA) wind farm Service Operation Vessel (SOV) to enable the cost-efficient integration of batteries.

ABB’s Power and Energy Management System (PEMS) is said to enable lean operation with fewer running generators without compromising on safety, meaning less maintenance and better fuel consumption over the long-term.

“Shipping is waking up to the many advantages of energy storage,” said Juha Koskela, Managing Director of ABB’s marine and ports business.

“With the industry starting to use batteries more and more, and fuel cells becoming a viable option, we fully expect the Onboard DC Grid to gain further traction.”

The Onboard DC Grid will integrate two sets of batteries used primarily for spinning reserve and peak shaving. Power peaks during operation can be covered by the battery rather than starting another engine. Again, battery power can act as backup for running generators, reducing the need to run spare generator capacity. In addition to ship efficiency gains, the mode of operation has long-term benefits for ship engines, as it increases efficiency through higher engine load and reduces running hours overall, ABB said.

“This project shows how energy storage is a cost-effective solution that maximize energy efficiency and safety,” said John Olav Lindtjørn, Global Product Manager for Onboard DC Grid at ABB Marine & Ports.

“Energy storage can be used for many purposes onboard; sometimes it serves as the sole energy source but for this windfarm vessel it is being deployed as an effective supporting element for the main engine.”

The LDA ship is under construction at the Cemre Shipyard in Turkey. The vessel design is a SOV vessel by Salt Ship Design.

Once delivered in 2018, the new LDA SOV will operate for Dong Energy Wind Power AS on four wind farms off the German coast – Borkum Riffgrund 1&2, and Gode Wind 1&2 – and will enable the maintenance of wind turbines by wind farm technicians.

Clustering a few wind farms, especially those to be built far offshore, and optimising the utilisation of a hotel vessel (floatel) would significantly contribute to cost saving through the O&M phase, according to Dennis Schiricke, Director at OutSmart.

There are hotel vessels currently dedicated to a single offshore wind farm and during the commissioning phase they are fully utilised, however, experience shows that after a certain period the utilisation of such a vessel is not optimum, Schiricke told Offshore WIND during our Expertise Hub held at the beginning of June.

OutSmart and Deutsche Windtechnik – which acquired a 70% stake in OutSmart last year – have developed a full-service concept, which focuses on logistics optimisation as a key element for cost-saving potential.

Ecofys WTTS will assist the Netherlands Enterprise Agency (RVO.nl) in performing a data quality review on the Hollandse Kust (noord) metocean measurement campaign.

Aiming to increase the Netherlands’ offshore wind capacity to 4,500 MW by 2023, the Dutch Government executes a tender scheme to develop new wind farms in five designated offshore zones.

In support of this, buoys have been installed by Fugro in all the wind farm zones, including two buoys in the Hollandse Kust (noord) zone, to measure wind, waves and current.

Ecofys WTTS will perform an independent data check and verification of monthly reports by Fugro and Deltares with the aim of supporting RVO.nl in their preparations of the next round of Dutch offshore wind tenders.

The goal of the 12-month assignment is to quantify the data availability and quality of the measured wind, meteorological and sea-state data in order to help assure the highest uptime and quality and support RVO.nl in assuring the datasets can be used in calculation of final wind resource assessments and turbine and foundation loads.

The work constitutes a continuation of the ongoing support Ecofys WTTS has been giving to RVO.nl over the past years and is a follow-up of the support and thought-leadership performed on the sites of Borssele and Hollandse Kust (zuid).

Galloper Windfarm Ltd (GWFL) has obtained an approval from Tendring District Council’s (TDC) Planning Committee to set up a temporary helipad at Great Oakley Lodge, Great Oakley, to serve the Galloper offshore wind farm.

GWFL needs the facility for up to 24 months while a more permanent base is established at Harwich International Port.

The temporary scheme includes a porta-cabin as an office and canteen, a new fuel storage tank, refuelling, lighting and car parking at the site.

The helipad will be needed from the middle of November until approval is granted for the permanent base and has been constructed.

Great Oakley Airfield is already allowed three helicopter take-offs per day and GWFL will require up to a maximum of a further 20 movements.

Susanne Ennos, TDC’s Planning Team Leader, said the facility is required to get staff to wind farms off the Suffolk Coast, where a significant investment in national infrastructure is being undertaken.

 

Galloper is an extension of the existing and fully operational Greater Gabbard wind farm off the coast of Suffolk. The wind farm will comprise 56 Siemens wind turbines, each with a capacity of 6MW, installed some 27km off the coast.

The offshore construction phase started in June 2016 and is expected to be completed in late 2017. The wind farm is expected to commence operations in March 2018.

Galloper is being constructed by innogy on behalf of GWFL, a GBP 1.5 billion joint equity partnership of 25% each between innogy UK, UK Green Investment Bank, Siemens Financial Services and Macquarie Capital.
