DONG Energy is an international operator of European offshorewind power with a considerable pipeline… In operation Under construction Under development  DONG Energy holds the largest share of projects in operation and under construction Walney 2.5 Westermost Rough in Europe Walney 1 +2 Heron Wind & Njord  Pipeline probability and (Hornsea zone) WoDS Anholt continuity is a key Barrow Horns Rev 1+2 success factor in Burbo Nysted offshore wind Lincs Gunfleet Borkum Riffgrund 1  DONG Energy has a Sands 1+ 2 Borkum Burbo 2.5 Riffgrund 2 high quality pipeline in London Array 2 NL portefølje Borkum Riffgrund West the short and medium London Array termNote: The projects under development are at different development stages.

  10. 10. Industrialisation initiatives to improve competitiveness ofoffshore windKey actions to improve competitiveness Rationale Sourcing  Major sourcing agreement with Siemens Wind Power regarding Standardisation of conditions delivery of up to 500 turbines  Framework agreements with Bladt Optimisation potential Industries (foundations) and Nexans (cables) Strategic partnerships  Joint ownership of A2SEA, including building SEA INSTALLER, a purpose built installation vessel Access to superior logistical  Ownership interest in CT Offshore skills (specialized cable installation company) Installation & O&M  Optimized concepts within Scale synergies installation concepts, technical improvements and O&M Optimization potential 10
  11. 11. Why safety is important to Wind Power Trust, responsibility, taking care and decency - a direct consequence of our values Licence to operate – authorities and partners are demanding good safety performance Image and pride – internally and externally Economy – accidents costs a lot of money
  12. 12. The extend of our commitment to safety Our sites Our suppliers The industry

  15. 15. How we approch safety Technology Systematic/controlled Culture and design approach
  16. 16. Challenges 16
  17. 17. Marine safety challenges Crew competency requirements vary from country to country(radar navigation, fire fighting etc.) Many and still larger vessels operating simultaneously on site Majority of wind technicians have a non-marine back ground Equipment standards used are mainly according to LSA code, which can give challenges in working while wearing the PPE 17
  18. 18. Helicopter challenges Wind farms located further offshore Hosting operations will become more common Implementation of new training (HUET and Hoisting) Implementation of new equipment Adapting logistic setups to match increased heli-ops Wind farm heli-ops still under development in DE 18
  19. 19. Development we would welcome Standards/codes for PPE tailored for the wind industry New types of MOB equipment suited for crew vessels with a 2-man crew Continuous development competency requirements for crew operating smaller vessels in offshore wind farms (STCW?) Helicopter and hoist training concepts for wind technicians 19
