orion



The launching marks a milestone in the construction of this next generation vessel, which is progressing at the COSCO shipyard according to schedule, DEME said. The delivery is scheduled for the end of 2019. Orion will be deployed for the construction of the largest offshore wind farms, to service the oil and gas industry and for the decommissioning of offshore installations. Orion will be equipped with a Liebherr crane with a lifting capacity of 5,000 tonnes. The loads can be lifted to a height of more than 170 metres. The deck space and deadweight have been maximised to provide a high transport and load capacity, according to DEME. Orion will be able to take the heaviest monopiles, jackets, wind turbine components and structures in a single shipment, and transport and install the next generation of multi-megawatt wind turbines. The vessel has dual-fuel engines and can run on liquefied natural gas (LNG). It will have a Green Passport and Clean Design notation.

WFSV



Manor Renewable Energy (MRE) Ltd is preparing to construct a second wind farm service vessel (WFSV) at its fabrication and engineering facility in Portland, UK. The UK-based company announced in February that it had received a GBP 50,000 grant from the SCORE fund to help design a sister vessel to Manor Venture. The new vessel will also be built in conjunction with Walker Marine Design, fully classed by Bureau Veritas and UK-flagged. According to Operations Director Leif Cooper, the company has adapted and modified the Manor Venture design from lessons learned over the last 18 months, but the core design and operational ethos remain the same. The new-build vessel will have a maximum speed of 25kn, a tank with a 45t capacity and extensive workable deck space and craneage, the company said. It will have the capacity to accommodate 24 staff for direct personnel transfer operations.

FCS 3410/SATV



Damen Shipyards Group has designed a new Fast Crew Supplier (FCS) 3410 service accommodation and transfer vessel (SATV) with features that are said to ensure its suitability for operations in the developing offshore wind market in North America. The premise of the design is the Damen Twin Axe bow design which allows the vessel to cut through waves instead of slamming, improving seakeeping and onboard comfort, the company said. The FCS 3410 would be built on location in the United States. The company’s US partner yards have built Damen designs at domestic locations for years, providing American ship owners with access to Damen’s designs while complying with the requirements of the Jones Act. This process, the Damen Technical Cooperation, ranges from licensing up to the delivery of full materials package, including technical support. Massachusetts currently leads the way in these developments with a target of 1,600MW generated by wind energy by 2027.

Horns rev 1 out of action


The Danish wind farm, Horns Rev 1 is out of operation following a transformer failure which occurred on 22nd October. According to Vattenfall, the repair work requires the replacement of one of the internal transformers and so far this has proven to be more complicated than initially assumed. The infrastructure continues to be analysed as they try to find a solution. The authorities were informed of the error at the time and no electricity consumers have been affected. Vattenfall stated that it is not currently possible to estimate when the wind farm will be exporting power again. The 160MW wind farm has been operational since 2002 and features 80 V80-2.0 MW turbines. The project has been jointly owned by Vattenfall (60%) and Ørsted (40%) since 2006. Vattenfall are also building the 406.7MW Horns Rev 3 wind farm; over half of the turbines have been installed and first power is expected before the end of the year.

gemini helps oyster conservation 


Northland Power (NP) is supporting the health of the North Sea through the development of oyster banks at its 600MW Gemini offshore wind farm. As part of a three year project with the WWF and ARK Natuurontwikkeling. NP placed 1,000kg of oysters around two turbines in May 2018. According to WWF, initial observations have shown high survival and growth rates. There are future plans to expand the reef to the rest of the wind farm. Eneco has followed suit and recently commenced a nature conservation project at the 129MW Luchterduinen offshore wind farm. Various types of artificial reef systems were positioned within the windfarm in late October by Van Oord’s HAM 602. The systems consist of “reef balls” and cages containing adult oysters which will hopefully contribute to the creation of full scale reefs and also support crabs, fish and seals. The project will run until 2022 and aims to show how offshore wind and nature conservation can be mutually beneficial.

french projects gets the
go-ahead

The French Government has given the green light for two French offshore wind farms with a combined capacity of ~1GW. On 6th November, the Ministry of the Ecological and Solidary Transition announced the authorization for the operation of the 496MW Iles d’Yeu et de Noirmoutier and the 496MW Dieppe-Le Tréport wind farms. Each project is set to feature 62 SG8.0-167DD turbines. The Order states that the Ministry can withdraw the authorization if the projects are not fully commissioned by July 2024. The wind farms are being developed by a consortium of Engie (47%), EDP Renewables (43%) and Groupe Caisse des Dépôts (10%). According to the developer financial close is planned for 2020, with commissioning in 2023. RTE is also still in the process of gaining authorization for the export route.

japan reviews offshore wind law

The Japanese Cabinet intends to reintroduce a law for the promotion of offshore wind expansion during the next National Diet session. 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. The draft law was previously pulled from the Diet discussions in July amid ‘several government executive scandals’ and flooding disasters. The Japan Wind Power Association (JWPA) expect the bill to be deliberated on by the House of Representatives in mid-November and resolved by the House of Councillors by the end of November. It is anticipated that if given the go-ahead the new law will be enforced next spring and the first offshore wind auction will likely take place during summer 2019.

Ørsted upgrades south fork wind farm

Ørsted’s U.S. branch (previously Deepwater Wind) is looking to increase the capacity of the South Fork offshore wind farm from 90MW to 130MW, to take advantage of the next generation of offshore wind turbines. The project will have the same 15-turbine footprint, but the larger turbines will deliver more clean energy at a lower cost. The new turbines will be of at least 8.6MW as opposed to the 6MW design and will be capable of powering 70,000 homes per year. Located 5 miles east of Montauk Point, onshore and offshore construction is planned to begin in 2021, with the wind farm coming online in 2022. New York state has strong clean energy ambitions, including increasing renewables to 50% of New York’s electricity supply by 2030 and installing 2,400MW of offshore wind. The first 800MW solicitation was launched last week and bids are due in February 2019.
