Offshore Wind Country Insights

ForeCoast Marine's Design Desk software has been used to provide insight into the expected durations and vessel costs associated with the installation of offshore wind farms, at various sites across the globe.

 

For each location, the same two vessel strategies were compared: The first was based on the use of two Jack up Barges (JUB), with a day rate of $180,000 / day and an operating threshold of 2.5 m significant wave height. The second was based on the use of 2 Heavy Lift Vessels (HLV) supplied by 4 feeder barges, with a day rate of $130,000 / day and an operating threshold of 1.6m significant wave height

 

The key findings from these analyses are presented in the Insight documents below.
