ESR8 - Installation and decommissioning of large floating offshore wind farms

Aims: The installation, operation and maintenance processes offshore still represent up to a third of the total cost of an offshore wind farm due to the challenges and costs of working at sea. In the context of floating wind farms, there is further room to develop floating-specific innovations to reduce environmental impact, risks, and thus also costs of these processes. This work will optimise the installation and decommissioning processes of a large number of FOWTs, and reduce the cost, risk and environmental impact of these marine operations.

Work package: WP2 - Production and deployment
