It stands out that the leading wind turbine OEMs are continuously improving the product portfolio of new turbine designs featuring increased capacities in the region of 11MW onward. Next to such an increase in turbine capacity and turbine size, the dimensions and unit weights of related turbine components such as Nacelle, Blades and Towers show a sharp increase accordingly. The installation process of wind turbines usually requires the utilisation of Jack-Up vessels, aside first floating turbine installation test projects.

These days and roughly speaking, only a handful of Jack-Up vessels currently exist in the market capable of conducting the installation works of the aforementioned next-generation wind turbines. Therefore and with a view on potential market shortages for such highly specialised installation vessels, vessel owners react thus several new building vessels were addressed recently, next to additional retrofitting modifications for existing vessels and their crane performance respectively.

The below graph summarizes, over the forthcoming years, some of the expected new Jack-Up vessels, either a new building or a retrofitting project, and further indicates the area of operations of such vessels. JackUp Vessel Forecasr

The majority of the indicated new vessels will have a crane capacity of at least 1,500 tons whereas it seems a new league of “high spec” Jack-Up vessels with crane capacities of 2,500 tons and above will be established in the course of the next years. This would also be of further relevance with regards to adjacent scopes of work such as the foundation installation, which is more often conducted by floating heavy lift vessels since the current amount of Jack-Up vessels capable to conduct XL foundation installation works is extremely limited. Furthermore, it stands out the Japanese- cabotage regulated offshore vessel market will see three new installation vessels, next to the already existing units, which would serve the growing local demand accordingly.

In the USA locally built ships are mandatory to operate between US ports and offshore wind farm projects, so in 2023 the first Jones Act compliant Jack-Up vessel will start its works to support the US projects.

In addition to the aforementioned new Jack-Up vessels, further vessel concepts seem to exist on paper, whereas it remains to be seen if and to what extend the ever-growing demand for these highly specialized assets can be satisfied accordingly.

  • Developments in Portugal, Spain and Italy | Update

    • The “Windfloat Atlantic” project represents the first and only offshore wind farm in Portugal yet. The project comprises out of two phases, whereas the second phase will add some additional 125MW capacity to the already commissioned 25MW floating wind capacity, which will materialize within the second half of the 2020’s
    • The further development concerning new offshore wind projects seems not to be fully decided yet, whereas the overall target would be to achieve a total amount of 300 MW of offshore wind capacity until 2030
    • In addition, other alternative offshore renewables energy projects like wave- or tidal energy converters were realized in the past with potentially further ones to come at the later stage

    • In 2021 and in total 3 GW of renewable energy capacity was awarded in Spain of which in theory 1 GW could (partly) be allocated in the offshore wind sector
    • An additional auction in 2021 foresees to allocate 1.5 GW of wind energy capacity whereas the potential share of offshore capacity remains unclear yet
    • The local Spanish Wind Energy Association proposes a dedicated strategy for the development of offshore wind projects including required reforms and auctions for the allocation of projects and capacities respectively
    • The Canary Islands seem to become a forerunner within Spain for the development of offshore wind projects, especially in the segment of floating turbines. For example, developer EnerOcean strives to realize in total 180MW of floating offshore wind capacity offshore Gran Canaria in the first half of the 2020’s

    • So far, no offshore wind projects were realised in Italy yet, whereas more than 40 projects could be considered to be in the early development phase
    • One of the first offshore wind farms might be the 30 MW Beleolico project near Taranto harbor, which will feature MingYang Offshore Turbines. The financial close for the project was achieved in February 2019.
