Optimising the use of jack-up vessels in offshore wind O&M

leviathan-working-on-sheringham-shoal

We’ve been working with The Crown Estate over the last six months to produce a study on improvements to the use of jack-up vessels in the O&M phase. As part of the work we have estimated the number of O&M jack-up operations and also understood from vessel operators and wind farm owners the potential costs savings.

Improved planning can help to reduce downtime and charter costs but there is potential for O&M teams to collaborate to create a clearer maintenance pipeline or even come together to deliver joint campaigns. The report presents case studies from offshore wind and other sectors to illustrate the savings that could be made.
