A Comprehensive Guide to Successful Offshore Wind Farm Installation
- Kurt Thomsen, Founder and Managing Director of Advanced Offshore Solutions ApS
This book is the first-ever roadmap to successful offshore wind installation. It provides a ready reference for wind project managers, teaching them how to deal with complications on-site, as well as for financers, who can utilize the text as an easy guide to asking the pivotal questions of petitioning wind project developers. These developers' planning stages will be improved by the bookâs expert advice on how to avoid wasting money by scoping out and mitigating potential problems up-front. Wind turbine manufacturers will benefit from insights into design optimization to support cheaper installation and hauling, thereby incurring lower project costs, and helping developers establish a quicker route to profitability. The book sheds light not just on HOW to solve a particular installation difficulty, but delves into WHY the problem may best be solved in that way.
