Offshore Wind


About the Course

This three-day programme is designed to provide professionals with a deep understanding of offshore wind farm projects. From planning and design to decommissioning, this course covers all phases, including both traditional fixed-bottom and cutting-edge floating wind farm technologies, as well as innovative offshore hydrogen production. Participants will gain insights into risk assessment and management, ensuring they are well-prepared to tackle the challenges in the industry. 

Day one focuses on the fundamentals of offshore wind energy, including the principles, advantages, and challenges of both fixed-bottom and floating wind turbines. Participants will learn about regulatory frameworks and government policies, gaining a comprehensive understanding of the differences between offshore and onshore wind energy. 

On the second day, the course delves into the technologies driving offshore wind. Participants will explore the details of fixed-bottom and floating wind turbines, offshore hydrogen production, grid integration, and energy storage solutions. The day includes a discussion on global market trends and innovations in offshore wind technology. 

The final day addresses the project lifecycle, from planning and design to construction, operation, maintenance, and decommissioning. Participants will learn about site selection, environmental and technical considerations, turbine layout, subsea cables, and permitting processes. The course will also cover construction techniques, the role of marine vessels, subsea cable installation, and minimising environmental impacts. 

Throughout the programme, interactive sessions, case studies, and group projects provide practical insights and hands-on experience. By the end of the course, attendees will be equipped with the knowledge and skills to manage offshore wind projects effectively, apply industry best practices, and contribute to the global transition to sustainable energy.
