Guide to an Offshore Wind Farm

The Crown Estate and the Offshore Renewable Energy (ORE) Catapult published an updated and extended version of ‘A Guide to an Offshore Wind Farm’.

The guide is intended to help a range of stakeholders and potential new market entrants understand how an offshore wind farm is built, operated and maintained.

It is said to help companies develop a greater understanding of the components and processes involved in the development of offshore wind farms, supporting supply chain development and highlighting ways in which businesses can seize opportunities from the growing, global offshore wind sector, expected to be worth an estimated GBP 30 billion per annum by 2030.

First published in 2010 and now updated to cover offshore wind farms that will be built out to 2025, the Guide, produced by BVG Associates on behalf of The Crown Estate and ORE Catapult, has been updated to include a focus on operations, maintenance, service activities, decommissioning, floating wind and emerging technologies in data, digital and robotics and autonomous systems.
