Offshore Wind Consultants Limited has experience in providing consultancy advice through the project life cycle of an offshore wind farm development. We assist with developing strategies for projects and with selecting and assessing the most advantageous offshore sites from both a technical and commercial perspective. Our deep knowledge and understanding of the global offshore wind farm industry supply chain also allows us to provide relevant and constructive advice in terms of procurement strategies and developing accurate and reliable financial models. Our unique experience profile also allows us to comment authoritatively on design and construction methodologies on projects.
Our in-house experts are also fully conversant with interface and risk management which allows us to develop comprehensive risk registers and related risk mitigation measures. We also develop detailed interface registers which we can maintain and develop through all stages of a project which is absolutely key to a successful project with many hundreds of interfaces to be managed. Our experience also enables us to provide direct advice and support through the final installation and commissioning stage of the project. This is achieved with a thorough understanding of all logistical issues, combined with access to extensive databases of information on vessels, barges and equipment etc. This insight covers both the installation of foundations and turbines as well as the critical subsea cable installation works. We also have direct experience of decommissioning work, which will be an important feature for consideration in the future for offshore wind farm development projects.
Through associations with our partner organisations we are able to offer direct engineering review and assessment capabilities for site evaluation and assessment, geotechnical and geophysical site investigations and evaluations, foundation structures, health and safety management, marine operations, offshore installation, special assessments and finally subsea cable installation and protection. These engineering services are key to supporting our main consultancy work, as we are able to draw upon the specific technical expertise of these highly regarded and experienced personnel and feedback the lessons learnt into our consultancy services.
Within Offshore Wind Consultants Limited we have extensive knowledge and experience of the entire project life cycle of offshore wind farm projects. We are therefore uniquely positioned to provide due diligence services to potential investors into projects as well as investors who may be looking to take a stakeholding in organisations within the supply chain of the industry. We are able to use our extensive databases of project and company information which provides a vital reference for this type of work. We also have our own capital cost evaluation models for projects which can reliably predict, with a high degree of accuracy, the estimated capital expenditure of all the phases of an offshore wind farm project. We can provide this service to either partners wishing to take equity in a project or on behalf of banks and lenders who are providing a debt facility for the project development.
