acta auriga



Acta Marine’s walk-to-work (W2W) and service operations vessel (SOV) Acta Auriga has completed its sea trials. During the sea trials, the vessel was tested at maximum forward and backward speed, where the aftward speed featuring the X-Stern exceeded 12.5 knots and the registered forward speed exceeded 13.5 knots, Acta Marine said. The mission equipment, including the centrally positioned SMST-provided W2W motion compensated gangway and elevator tower for personnel and cargo transfers, as well as the 3D compensated SMST crane capable of 6-ton cargo lifts, has been installed and commissioned. The SOV has now returned to Ulstein’s construction yard in Ulsteinvik, Norway, for completion.

bokalift 1



Boskalis’s new self-propelled DP2 crane vessel, the Bokalift 1, is currently preparing for the installation of foundations at the East Anglia ONE offshore wind farm in the UK. The new vessel, which is a result of a conversion of the former Finesse type II heavy transport vessel, was put into service in February. The Bokalift 1 features a dynamic positioning (DP2) system, accommodation for up to 150 people, and a rotating mast crane with a lifting capacity of 3,000 tonnes. The conversion was largely completed in 2017, with the outfitting of DP2 and additional accommodation done in Singapore and the 3,000-tonne rotating mast crane installed in China.

seazip fix



From mid-April 2018, Harlingen-based SeaZip Offshore Service and Amsterdam-based Deep Hydrography & Geophysics will jointly operate a DP1 Ice Class Survey and ROV vessel. This means that hydrographic and maritime expert knowledge will be combined in a robust vessel of more than 42 metres long which can be used for any survey operations on the open sea. The vessel, the SeaZip Fix, manned with maritime professionals and can be supplemented with experienced surveyors. She has a high level of equipment for surface and underwater positioning. Specific survey equipment can be added to her standard equipment, such as multibeam echo-sounder, a side-scan sonar, a UXO gradiometer array and a sub-bottom profiler.

zero subsidy success for vattenfall

Dutch Authorities have awarded the rights for the Hollandse Kust Zuid I and II (HKZ) offshore wind farm to Nuon a subsidiary of Vattenfall who’s bid beat innogy, Statoil and the Witwind consortium. The 700-750MW project will be the Netherland’s first zero-subsidy wind farm and development will be led by Chinook C.V., a subsidiary of Nuon. The project must be ready for 2022 with offshore construction expected to start in 2020. The penalty for failure to build is unspecified but it is expected to be proportional to the Borssele wind farm zone, approximately €35m. Vattenfall will now focus on the final preparations for this project and complete the tendering process for main contractors. The project is just one of several auctioned annually under the Dutch centralised model. The results of the Borssele V tender is due next month and the tender for HKZ III and IV is scheduled for Q4 2018.

more cable woes at rampion

E.ON is to replace a second export cable at the 400MW Rampion offshore wind farm stating that the damage would ‘compromise its performance.’ The original export cables were supplied by LS Cable Korea and installed by VBMS in 2016. According to E.ON the damage incurred was similar to that identified on the eastern export cable which had to be replaced last year. E.ON also had to install a separate communications cable to sidestep future risks associated with the fibre optic core (FOC) which had caused issues during installation. From a recent analysis by 4C it was found that of recent export cable failures linked to cable installation or manufacturing 31% could be traced back to the FOC. According to E.ON the western cable will be replaced this summer and ‘the project remains on schedule to be fully operational later this year’.

statoil sets sights on poland

Statoil has signed an agreement with Polenergia to ac-quire a 50% interest in two early phase offshore wind projects in Poland totalling 1.2GW, Bałtyk Środkowy III and Bałtyk Środkowy II. Current and long-term energy generation in Poland remains dominated by coal (81%) but the Polish Baltic Sea has an offshore wind potential in excess of 8GW. So far 10 projects have been given positive “location decisions” with some potentially ready for con-struction from 2021-2026, according to 4C Analysts. Poland also has emerging players in the offshore wind industry e.g. ST3 Offshore and TELE-FONIKA Kable. Statoil aims to further mature the two projects and manage the development, construction and operational phases. The closing of the transactions with Polenergia is subject to consent of the President of the Office of Competition and Consumer Protection in Poland.

uk sector deal set to double offshore wind

The UK offshore wind industry and UK Government are collaborating on a new sector deal that aims to more than double offshore wind capacity to 30GW by 2030. If agreed the industry anticipates up to £48 billion investment in energy infrastructure, which could reduce overall electricity system costs by 9% and create 27,000 skilled jobs. The industry will now enter into a period of engagement with the UK Government on the prospectus. According to 4C's analysis, projects currently holding seabed leases (including those already commissioned, underway or planned) equate up to 35GW. The Crown Estate also announced last November that it is considering new leasing for offshore wind projects and has begun an engagement process to inform the leasing model and identify potential new sites. If new leasing is confirmed, a formal process could commence in late 2018 or early 2019.

brasil investigates first offshore turbin

Petróleo Brasileiro S.A. (Petrobras) an energy company headquartered in Rio de Janeiro is in the process of licensing a pilot offshore wind project located in the Ubarana field, 20km off the coast of the municipality of Guamaré. The project is set to feature a 5MW turbine with a fixed foundation and a 1km subumbilical electric-optical cable which will connect to the Ubarana Platform 3 (PUB-3). A solar powered anemometric tower will also be installed 350m from the turbine to measure wind speed and direction, temperature, humidity, pressure and rainfall. The collected data will be sent via radio to PUB-3 and used to evaluate the performance of the turbine and survey wind potential. Petrobras announced plans for the turbine last year and Ibama, the Brazilian Institute of Environment is currently reviewing the initial project documents submitted in February 2018.

sweden set to banish grid connection cost

The Swedish Energy Agency (SEA) is examining two differ-ent models to investigate potential ways to remove the grid-connection costs for offshore wind power. Although the cost of offshore wind is declining, in Sweden connecting to the onshore grid remains a significant expense. The first model entails moving the grid connection point to the wind farm. Grid operator Svenska kraftnät, would be responsible for the offshore grid infrastructure with funding provided by an increased grid tariff. However, this would create unequal conditions for onshore wind and other production facilities which would continue to pay connection costs. The second model creates a more equal playing field via the introduction of subsidies to wind power producers for a portion of the connection costs. According to SEA, the removal of costs may make Swedish offshore wind power more competitive in the European context and aid the Governments aims to be 100% reliant on renewable energy sources by 2040.
