Six crucial parameters: How to optimise marine coordination around offshore wind farms
Marine coordination is a complex and serious task that can have severe consequences if not performed properly. An innovative, reliable software system is one of the vital tools for creating the necessary overview of operations in and around offshore wind farms.
Based on several expressed needs and constructive feedback from various users and experts in the field, we've identified six crucial parameters that should be fulfilled to collectively form a recipe for optimal marine coordination.
Challenges for marine coordination
Being part of offshore operations around wind farms is not an easy job. For most employees, it means leaving friends and family for a longer period when onboarding a vessel to be transported to the working place of the day, or even for weeks.
For vessel operators, the workplace is situated in the middle of the sea, and for service technicians or engineers, the work is carried out in and around the wind turbines more than
100 meters above sea level – in very challenging marine environments.
The key challenge in this environment is for marine
coordinators to plan, monitor and deliver safe and
efficient activities for employees working offshore.
This requires that the cooperation between the turbine
contractors and vessel operators is well-established, the
connection and communication reliable, and the tracking
and overview 100% accurate. But how is this possible?
