SOV 



US-based Aeolus Energy has signed an agreement with Norway’s Ulstein Design & Solutions, B.V. to design a Service Operations Vessel (SOV). When constructed, the vessel will be Jones Act-compliant and will serve as the initial Aeolus investment into a fleet of vessels including cable ships, crew transfer vessels and hotel ships, all designed to service the offshore wind industry from installation through decommissioning, the company said. The SOV will be based upon Ulstein’s SX195 design and will be fully customized to Aeolus’s specifications. The vessel will be constructed at US shipyards. The Jones Act requires that any vessel transporting cargo between US ports, or between US ports and offshore facilities, is built and flagged in the US.

JAPANESE FLOATER WITHSTANDS STRONG STORMS

The New Energy and Industrial Technology Development Organisation’s (NEDO) floating offshore wind turbine has been installed off the coast of Kitakyushu, Japan and is scheduled to be commissioned by the end of the year. According to NEDO the assembled 3MW turbine and IDEOL’s "Damping Pool" foundation was towed to the Hibikinada area in late August and moored with nine sets of ‘studless chain and high-holding-power anchors’. A power cable has been connected and insulation resistance testing of the cable was completed in mid-September. According to NEDO, after installing the turbine it suffered from ‘several severe typhoons but no damages to the system were reported’. NEDO are now preparing for commissioning which will take a couple months.

BELGIUM CONFIRMS POST 2020 TENDERS

The Belgium Council of Ministers have approved a principle memorandum for the tendering of new offshore wind farms from 2020. The government is considering either a single 1.75GW (221km2) zone or two 700MW (110km2) zones which would be launched simultaneously. For this next tender Belgium has moved away from the offshore domain concessions strategy towards a competitive approach, similar to that of the Netherlands. With the aim of delivering maximum capacity at minimal price, the ministers intend to include the opportunity for zero subsidy bids. The Belgium Commission for Electricity and Gas Regulation is due to publish an analysis of the subsidy options on 15th December. According to the memorandum the government will undertake various preliminary site studies between now and 2021. The tender process for the new capacity is anticipated to commence in 2022 with construction starting in 2024.

fRENCH REGION SEEKS NEW OFFSHORE WIND AREAS

The regional council of Pays de la Loire in France is to launch consultations with a view to opening new areas for offshore wind development. The region adopted a long term "Regional Maritime Ambition" strategy for the development of renewable energy earlier this year. However, a moratorium was enforced on the search for new areas whilst the renegotiation of tariffs for six French offshore wind farms was being resolved. With the moratorium now lifted the region is to resume the search for offshore wind sites with ‘less constraints’ which requires extensive consultation and feasibility studies. Elsewhere the Grand Maritime Port of Le Havre and Siemens Gamesa signed an agreement for the next stages of development of SGRE’s turbine manufacturing base. The complex will supply the offshore wind farms of Dieppe-Le Tréport, Saint Brieuc and Yeu-Noirmoutier, as well as other future offshore wind projects in France and Europe.

cROWN ESTATE APPROVES EXTENSION 
projects

The Crown Estate has completed its initial assessment of the eight offshore wind extension applications which total 3.4GW of new capacity. According to The Crown Estate the eight projects have satisfied the selection criteria and will now be subject to a plan level Habitats Regulations Assessment (HRA) which will assess any possible impact to relevant nature conservation sites. The HRA will take place over the next six to nine months. The extension projects include Sheringham Shoal (317MW),Dudgeon (402MW), Race Bank (573MW), Greater Gabbard (504MW), Galloper (353MW), Rampion (400MW), Gwynt y Môr (576MW) and Thanet (300MW). Subject to the outcome of the plan level HRA, applicants could be granted agreements for a lease during summer 2019. Successful developers would then commence project specific environmental assessments and seek consent from the Planning Inspectorater 2019.

VIRGINIA SETS OFFSHORE WIND GOALS

Governor Ralph Northam has released the 2018 Virginia Energy Plan setting a goal of 2GW of offshore wind capacity installed by 2028. The Plan provides a strategic vision for the state’s energy policy over the next 10 years with a focus on modernising the electricity grid and promoting renewable energy. A 16% renewable procurement target also includes 3GW of solar and onshore wind to be deployed by 2022. Rhode Island is currently holding a Request for Proposals (RFP) to procure up to 400MW of renewable energy. Interested parties must submit their bids by 29th October with the selection of bidders to negotiate PPA contracts scheduled for 2nd May 2019. Rhode Island selected the 400MW Revolution Wind project as the winner of the states RFP earlier this year. The developer Deepwater Wind is also pursuing a further 100MW expansion to the Revolution wind project in response to Connecticut’s 12 TWh/yr of Zero Carbon Energy RFP.

CALL FOR OFFSHORE WIND IN NEW HAMPSHIRE

State representatives and environmental groups have release a ‘White Paper’ calling for New Hampshire to target 100% renewable energy generation by 2040. The paper was motivated by the release of the ‘New Hampshire 10-Year State Energy Strategy Plan’ in April 2018 which glossed ‘the importance of the Granite State’s instate renewable and clean energy resources’. The paper outlines strategies to achieve 100% renewable energy including the ‘significant potential of offshore wind’. NH currently lags behind other states in New England with regards to offshore wind primarily due to political opposition. A 2017 DOE economic study determined that there is 2GW of wind power with “economic potential” off the NH coast. The White Paper calls for various obstacles to be addressed and suggests pathways forward including more financial support for renewables, increasing the current Renewable Portfolio Standard goal of 25% by 2025 and the formation of an offshore wind partnership with Maine.

DENMARK SCREENS NEW OFFSHORE
Wind sites

The Danish Energy Agency has entered into an agreement with COWI to investigate four potential offshore wind areas totalling 3,200 km2. Denmark recently set a new goal of installing up to 2.4GW of new offshore wind capacity by 2030. Four areas have been identified for further study; an area off the west coast of Jutland, an area in Jammerbugt, an area at Hesselø, as well as an area at Kriegers Flak. COWI is undertaking a screening process to examine which areas might obtain the lowest bid price as well as evaluating the best tender strategies. COWI is scheduled to complete this process by the end of the year. The new capacity will be installed across three 800MW projects, with tenders to be held in 2019/20, 2021 and 2023. Construction and commissioning across the period 2024–2030. Denmark currently has 1.3GW of installed offshore wind capacity, with the 406.7MW Horns Rev 3 project also due to be commissioned next year
