  1. 1. Telescopic Tower Facilitating Installation of ≥12 MW Offshore Wind Turbines

    University essay from Uppsala universitet/Institutionen för geovetenskaper

    Author : Martin Pettersson; [2020]
    Keywords : Installation of Offshore Wind Turbines; Telescopic Tower; Pin and Hole Jacking System; Friction Connection; Installation av vindkraftverk till havs; teleskopisk torn; hydraulisk jacksystem; friktionskoppling;

    Abstract : The trend of offshore wind power is bigger and bigger wind turbines. Turbines are now becoming so big that existing installation vessels no longer are feasible and new bigger installation vessels are needed. READ MORE

  2. 2. Future offshore wind farm construction and maintenance strategies

    University essay from Lunds universitet/Industriell elektroteknik och automation

    Author : Jesper Strid; [2017]
    Keywords : Technology and Engineering;

    Abstract : With the wind farms moving further from shore, new challenges arise. Technicians must visit the turbines almost daily because of the constant need for maintenance. But when the transport time from shore to the wind farm turns into hours is some kind of permanent accommodation required at the farm for the technicians to live on. READ MORE
