Wind farms larger and further from shore have created the need for a new approach to operations and maintenance (O&M). By marrying established technologies and services from within the Fred. Olsen related companies, they can create a fixed offshore facility that offers developers a way to reduce operating costs for the next generation of wind farms built further from shore.
Fred. Olsen Windbase is a flexible solution with a mix of facilities and capabilities. These can be delivered individually or in combination with other offshore marine assets. Fred. Olsen Windbase includes an accommodation module, a full service base and a fully operational offshore heliport, removing the requirement for an onshore quayside facility. An investment decision on the first full-scale version is expected in the first half of 2016.
