A Novel Offshore Wind Transfer Technique

Published 27 May 2016

This O&M Case Study looks at an alternative offshore personnel transfer approach that avoids the use of vertical ladders, which was developed for the Beatrice Demonstrator project. It explains the infrastructure installed, and discusses the performance and experience, and benefits of using a different method of transferring personnel to the turbine platform. Repsol is co-owner of the Beatrice Offshore Wind Demonstration project, having acquired the original developer, Talisman, in May 2015. The company is also involved in the development of new offshore wind farms in Scotland.
