Combining High Performance with Safety On-board W2W “Bibby WaveMaster 1”

Friday, 17 March, 2017 - 11:00

Damen Shipyards Gorinchem successfully built the “Bibby WaveMaster 1”, their first walk-to-work services operations vessel, and Pronomar helped creating a healthy working environment on-board by providing drying systems for workwear to the turbine maintenance personnel.

Damen Shipyards Gorinchem is the headquarters of the Damen Shipyards Group and delivers up to 180 vessels each year and has actually built more than 6,000 ships since 1969.

This custom-designed vessel was deployed for UK-based Bibby Marine Services. It is designed to operate with maximum efficiency, while providing a high level of comfort for the crew. “We are always happy to work with Damen, which has a strong maritime heritage and is clearly focused on innovation and on having a good relationship with their suppliers.”, says Jaap Baars, Managing Director of Pronomar.

At the beginning of September A2SEA’s Sea Challenger completed the installation of 67 Siemens 6 MW turbines on the 402 MW Dudgeon Offshore Wind Farm.

ECN, KNMI and Whiffle are working on a new atlas featuring accurate information about North Sea winds for use in wind energy applications. Clarity with regard to the average amount of wind and how often wind speeds reach extreme levels will enable a more accurate estimate of how much wind energy you can generate and how robust wind turbines need to be made to prevent damage or failure. Greater certainty about the potential performance of your wind farm also makes it possible to secure cheaper loans from investors. This reduces the cost of offshore wind energy, a key target set by the Dutch government.

SeaRenergy further extends its services in the offshore wind business and is now offering CMID´s (Common Marine Inspection Documents ). CMID´s will be carried out by our inhouse Accredited Vessel Inspector (AVI).
