This event will take place on Wednesday 17 June 2015 – Thursday 18 June 2015 at Norwood Hall Hotel, Garthdee Road, Aberdeen, UK. It will focus on the growing need for specialized vessels to instal and service wind farms.
With a drive towards renewable forms of energy, the last few years has seen huge investment on a European wide scale in creating large wind farms off the coast of a number of European countries. The result has been the need for a specialized fleet of vessels to install and service these wind farms. The need to transfer both equipment and manpower in a safe and efficient manner has led to calls for more stringent health & safety guidelines and industry wide debate on how best to apply existing IMO instruments on operational activities. This conference will give a special focus to operational techniques used within this specialised area, highlight the developments in IMO regulation and consider contractual and financing options for new vessels.
