GRS ADHOC Market News – CTV Market fully booked

Up-to-date Market News directly from our CTV Brokers Maximilian Helvogt and Henning Leverkus: "The demand for Crew Transfer Vessels during spring and summer season in the North Sea as well as in the Baltic Sea started earlier than in the years before and especially large vessels (above 24m LOA) and with capacity for 24 Pax have been fixed and secured early in the year already for several months time charter period. Only very few vessels have been available on the spot market in May, June and July this year and occasionally there were more enquiries than vessels have been available.

CTVs longer than 24m could achieve charter rates in region of Euro 4,500.- per day (24 hours operations / day) for a charter period of about 1-3 months. Even “second choice” CTVs (below 20m LOA) are fully occupied for the time being. We see a slight relaxation from second half August onwards, but this is depending whether Charterers take use of any optional periods, which most contracts allow to Charterers."
If you are in need of a CTV on short notice, please let Henning or Maximilian know soonest and they will guide you on the last remaining CTVs! Get in contact with them: +49 40 411 60 68 0.

INCH CAPE GETS GATECHECKED

MoraInch Cape Offshore Limited (ICOL) is preparing to submit an application in the coming weeks for a revised wind farm design featuring 72 turbines with tip heights up to 301m and rotor diameters of 250m. In light of recent technological advancements, ICOL is seeking to vary the original 2014 consents for its 784MW Inch Cape wind farm to maximize the projects potential. The Scottish government published a Scoping Opinion in July 2017 and ICOL have since carried out research and consultations to prepare a new Environmental Impact Assessment (EIA). The government has now published a Gatecheck report to determine if the draft EIA adheres to advice given in the Scoping Opinion to ensure that the consent process runs smoothly without the need for additional information requests. According to Marine Scotland the target timescale for consideration of an application is nine months which puts the deadline just before the UK’s next Contract for Difference auction. ICOL is embarking on further geophysical and geotechnical campaigns from July to October to improve understanding of the seabed conditions to aid project design. The project is expected to enter construction in 2020

ICEABREAKER GIVEN THE THUMBS UP

The Ohio Power Siting Board (OPSB) has given conditional approval of the 20.7MW Icebreaker project, the first freshwater wind farm in North America. The OPSB has issued a recommendation to the state to allow for construction of project stating the project will have ‘minimum adverse environmental impact’. But the Staff Report also includes more than 34 conditions which have to be met including the development of a satisfactory bird and bat monitoring plan. Otherwise the wind turbines will be unable to operate at night for 10 months of the year. The wind farm will be located 8-10 miles off Cleveland and is set to feature six V126-3.45MW turbines with innovative mono bucket foundations and ice cones. The Lake Erie Energy Development Co. (LEEDCo) has spent years seeking approval for the project. Construction has been repeatedly pushed back but LEEDCo remain optimistic with a summer 2020 start date. The conditional approval comes ahead of a public hearing on 19th July and an OSPB adjudicatory hearing on 6th August.

OFFSHORE WIND PICKS UP THE PACE IN U.S.

Ørsted are to deploy a floating Lidar unit at its Ocean Wind project site off the coast of New Jersey. According to Ørsted, the AXYS FLiDAR WindSentinel will collect ‘mission critical’ met-ocean data to help determine the wind turbine locations. The 1.95GW Ocean Wind offshore wind farm will provide a substantial contribution to New Jersey's 2030 target of 3.5GW. The New Jersey Board of Public Utilities (NJBPU) recently announced the selection of a leading firm to provide strategic planning and analysis in support of the states Offshore Wind Strategic Plan and its initial 1.1GW goal. The firm is to be announced following approval from the New Jersey Treasury Department. The company will identify and develop timelines and evaluate the economic and environmental impacts of offshore wind farms. Further along the coast, New York is set to launch a solicitation for 800MW of offshore wind capacity during Q4 2018. The New York State Energy Research & Development Authority is overseeing the procurement and will announce the winners during Q2 2019. The New York State Offshore Wind Master Plan was unveiled earlier this year with a goal of 2.4GWW of offshore wind by 2030.

BARBADOS SEEKS OFFSHORE WIND ADVICE

The Government of Barbados is setting its sights on offshore renewables and is seeking a consulting firm to undertake a range of feasibility studies for an ‘ocean energy power plant’ featuring either Ocean Thermal Energy Conversion (OTEC) or fixed or floating offshore wind technologies. The Ministry of Energy and Water Resources ask interested parties to respond to the Expression of Interest request by 25th July. The ministry states that the studies will entail technological and financial evaluation of OTEC and offshore wind possibilities as we all as an Environmental, Licensing and Tourism Study. The environmental study will assess the suitability of the different technologies. Off the coast of Barbados average wind speeds range from 6.5-8.5m/s and the Island is characterised by a narrow insular shelf which rapidly drops off into deeper water, suggesting floating wind has higher potential. The studies are financed through the Public Sector Smart Energy Project which is supported by the Inter American Development Bank and the European Union. The project aims to help to reduce Barbados’ fossil fuel dependency and promote sustainable energy.

INSTALLATION SUCCESS IN CHINA

The final turbine has been installed at the 79.4MW Fuqing Xinghua Bay Phase I wind farm. Located in the Taiwan Strait, the area has a complex seabed, a large tidal range of 4.28m and is prone to typhoons and monsoons. The project features 14 turbines from multiple manufactures including 3x Haliade 150-6MW, 2x Goldwind 6.7MW, 2x H 151-5MW, 2x TZ5000 (Taiyuan Heavy Industry), 1x 5MW (Dongfang), and 2x 6MW Shanghai Electric. The final two turbines are designed by Mingyang Wind Power and dubbed the world’s largest typhoon resistant turbines. Typhoons represent a specific challenge facing offshore wind in South East Asia. Typhoons bring extreme wind speeds, rapid changes in wind direction and high storm surges. MHI Vestas recently confirmed that its 9MW turbine platform will be ready to take on typhoons in Taiwan by 2020. The Fuqing Xinghua Bay prototype project will provide important data for future projects.

INDUSTRY SEEKS FRENCH FLOATING FUTURE

74 companies have signed a statement calling for 3GW of floating offshore wind in the French Mediterranean by 2030. In the statement dated 24th July, Industry leaders such as Siemens Gamesa, Ideol, EDF, Equinor and wpd have joined forces and hope for a floating tender as early as 2019. The statement explains that the area has an abundant natural wind resource with low tidal ranges, moderate swell and suitable seabed conditions. This year the first two prototype floating wind turbines were installed in French waters and a further four projects totalling 100MW are in the pipeline. Recently the Gulf of Lion wind farm received a favourable approval from the Marine Park of the Gulf of Lion with regards to the environmental impacts. The park also delivered some recommendations on various topics e.g. water quality and marine wildlife. The developers said that they welcome the results and are progressing with the consent process, expected in early 2019. The project will feature four Haliade 150-6MW turbines with Windfloat foundations. Construction is due to start 2020 with commissioning in 2021.

IRELAND SETS AUCTION TIMELINE

The Irish government has approved the long awaited Renewable Electricity Support Scheme (RESS) and aim to hold a first auction in 2019. The new scheme replaces the renewable energy feed-in tariff support framework and will be based on market-orientated auctions. Renewable energy auctions will now be held yearly from 2019-2025 with auction capacities ranging from 1-4GW. SSE has expressed concerns that the potential size of the auctions ‘may be too small to allow large scale offshore wind projects to commercially progress forward’. SSE has requested the government to implement a technology specific category for offshore wind. Ireland’s only operational windfarm is the 25.2MW Arklow Bank project which was commissioned in 2004. Several Irish projects have been in the planning stages for several years but have failed to progress due to lack of available support. The 330MW Oriel Wind Farm received significant investment last year from the developer Parkwind who acquired a stake in the project with the aim of establishing it as the ‘first of a new generation of offshore wind farms’.

JAPAN RUNS OUT OF TIME

The klaxon has sounded for Japan’s parliament as they run out of time to pass a new law to promote offshore wind expansion. The proposed legislation would provide a framework for offshore wind development and much needed clarity with regards to auction guidelines, support mechanisms and 30 year occupation leases. Japan’s parliament, closed on the 22nd July amid ‘several government executive scandals’ and recent flooding disasters. According to the JWPA the legislation was one of five which was ‘pulled out from discussion due to the lack of session time.’ The Law will have to be reintroduced at the next session which could be held as early as this autumn or into next year. Japan currently has 61MW of installed offshore wind capacity and a potential 2GW in the pipeline with floating technology being key to this expansion.
