Offshore Wind Turbines - Danish Know How
Fredag 30. marts 2012 kl: 16:33
Skibsteknisk Selskab, Maritimt Selskab, TINV og Danish Wind Energy Group, afholder mandag den 30. april en stor engelsksproget Offshore-konference: Offshore Wind Turbines - Danish Know How, i København.
Arrangørerne skriver i invitationen, at strøm fra offshore vindmøller i dag dækker en væsentlig del af den alternative energiproduktion i Danmark. Lige siden opførelsen af de første offshore vindmølleparker begyndte, har Danmark spiller en betydelig rolle i sektoren.
På konferencen vil deltagerne få et overblik over de skibe og kompetencer der er brug for i forbindelse med opførelsen af havvindmølleparker. Indlægsholderne repræsenterer nogle af de mest centrale danske og udenlandske vindmølleprojekter.
9.00–9.30 Registration, coffee and rolls
9.30-9.40 Welcome and opening of the conference
by Anders Ørgård Hansen, chairman of the Danish Society of Naval Architecture and
Marine Engineering DSNAME
9.40 – 10.20 Offshore wind: Prospects challenges and opportunities
by Lars Landberg, Vice president, GL-Garrad Hassan
Offshore wind is still new and (to wind energy people) very big! The presentation
will give an overview of the market, say a bit about the scales involved, including
the latest turbine sizes, it will also touch upon what is called “balance of plant”
including some thoughts on foundations. The presentation will then turn to
discussing access, ports and vessels, whilst finishing with an overview of costs
and typical contract structures.
10.20 – 11.00 Experiences and Future Challenges regarding Operation & Maintenance of
Offshore Wind Turbines
by Niels Agner Jensen, DONG Energy
As the wind energy industry moves further to sea over the next few years, there
will be a shift in the vessels and methods to be used for O&M of offshore wind
turbines. DONG Energy has a long experience with operation of purpose-built crew
vessels on existing sites but are working with different set-ups for coming wind
farms further offshore.
11.00 – 11.30 Coffee break
11.30 – 12.10 Floating Hotels - instead of transfer to and from shore
by Anders Østergaard, C-bed Floating Hotels
When working in the offshore site, the engineers and technicians often spend
more time travelling to and from the site than actually working on the installations.
C-bed provides a solution to this, with floating hotels specially designed to provide
suitable accommodation for people working on offshore installations. C-bed will
address some of the challenges that they have met in the starting up phase and
comment on the market including taking a look into the future.
12.10 – 12.50 Exchange of large components
by Thorsten Jalk, DBB Jack Up Services
The offshore wind industry is a young industry with only about one decade of
references for operating offshore wind farms on a large scale. In the near future,
the industry will face new challenges with wind turbines placed on even deeper
waters – bigger and new types of foundations – bigger and heavier turbine components – higher up in the air - facing a harsher environment. So far, offshore wind
turbines have been served by various kinds of jack-up or small installation vessels,
not built for the purpose or the environmental challenges. In my talk, I will highlight
some of the key elements and technical challenges, seen from a maritime perspective, related to replacing a main component (blades, main shaft, gearboxes,
generators etc.) on an offshore wind turbine. The emphasis will be on the maritime
setup required for this kind of offshore operation.
12.50 – 13.50 Lunch
13.50 – 14.30 Service to the Offshore Wind industry
by Tomas Valling, Manager Valling Ship Survey
Valling Ship Survey is a company, specialized in supporting all sorts of vessels
involved in the offshore wind industry. The company has so far had more than 50
assignments with rebuilding special vessels and registration with the Danish
Maritime Authority, where procedures and documentation for approval can be
extensive. Valling Ship Survey has a strong understanding of the industry’s requirements
and employs a team of experienced naval architects, ship brokers and
Customers are supported from first initial inspection before the purchase until the
ship is in operation with all certificates at hand. Case stories will be shared and
examples of issues and challenges will be presented.
14.30 – 15.10 Safety Training for the Offshore Wind industry
by Claus Nexø Hansen, Sales Manager, Falck Nutec
More and more companies within the offshore wind industry, have realised the
need for health and safety training, specially adapted to this environment.
Falck Nutec has developed custom-made training, in close cooperation with leading
companies from the wind industry, for more than 20 years.
The training provides the skills needed to prevent accidents. All training are made
as realistic as possible, to ensure the personnel the best possible conditions to
Guiding you to a safer future.
15.10 – 15.40 Coffee break
15.40 – 16.20 VESTAS / ESVAGT wind turbine service concept
by Ole Ditlev Nielsen, Chief Operations Officer, Esvagt
VESTAS and ESVAGT have developed a unique offshore service concept on the
Belwind project (Belgium), it is based on past experience which have been obtained
during decades of safe personnel transfer to normally not manned offshore platforms.
