Sea Speed

R&D for the Carbon Trust

Offshore Wind Farm Access

The work focuses on the transfer of technicians from lightweight Crew Transfer Vessels (CTV) to offshore wind turbine towers. Seaspeed was awarded this work based on proven technical, schedule and commercial capabilities within this industry sector.

The project covers a wide range of activities, including sea trials, model tests, VMMS software developments, automated performance assessment during normal operation and the development of baseline performance plots for typical crew transfer vessels.

The two main objectives of the work are to provide an understanding of the typical performance that can be expected from present and near-future craft in terms of their transit, approach and transfer modes of operations and to develop a predictive system (software and sensor arrangements) that provides a warning for personnel undertaking a transfer, should unsafe motions be predicted to be imminent.
