A2SEA offers integrated installation and service solutions for the offshore wind industry. Since 2002, our specialised fleet has installed more than 1,400 turbines and 400 foundations for the world’s offshore wind market. We have installed foundations and turbines on i.a. London Array, Westermost Rough, Gode Wind 2+1, Borkum Riffgrund 1 and Burbo Bank Extension. Many of our techniques and processes are setting standards for best practice throughout Offshore Wind, providing solutions that can help bring down the cost per megawatt of clean energy.
An essential link in the offshore wind value chain
Before foundations, wind turbines and cables are in place, an offshore wind project demands the planning skills, process know-how and experience of qualified people who can guarantee the job gets done. Our project teams are adept at pulling together all the pieces of the installation puzzle to ensure that every project comes in safely, on time, and to budget – and we have a fourteen-year track record to prove it.
Planning down to the smallest detail
Before mobilising a single crew member, we prepare all the necessary approvals, plan the supply chain and carry out a seabed assessment to make sure it’s stable enough to bear the weight of our jack-ups in action.
Once a project is underway, our jack-ups can provide full-board accommodation for all offshore personnel involved in the installation, making coordination between the various contractors easy.
Optimising our processes from project to project
We examine and document each of our processes in detail, always looking for ways to make improvements. From project to project, these add up to improvements in both time and cost that can be passed on to our customers. Because we are so familiar with the seabed conditions, wind turbine components and how long each operation takes, our risk management is both detailed and reliable.
The all-important aspect of safety is always a key part of the planning and execution phase and safety assessments and planning are always conducted closely with the client.
The A2SEA offshore wind package
A2SEA has the experience, know-how and equipment to ensure our customers get an installation package tailored to the specific needs of their offshore wind projects. Working closely with our key customers, we develop solutions that meet the demands of the market and, ultimately, help bring down the cost of clean energy.
