Abstract

Marine operations play a key role throughout all phases of a wind farm’s life cycle. Uncertainties during offshore installations can extend construction schedules and increase CAPEX. Installation costs typically account for about 30% of the overall project cost. The work presented in this poster considers the installation modelling for UK offshore Wind Rounds 1, 2 and 3. An assessment of vessel performance was completed for generic representative sites for each round by comparing the sensitivities of predicted durations. The results provide a quantification of installation vessel performance, approximated costs and the associated deviations. The derived sensitivities and costs can be used as measure of installation risk to support planning, management and efficient use of project resources.
