    1. 1. Deepwater Offshore Wind Installations<br />4th Year Project ProposalMonday 19th April 2010<br />Ewan Baird, SIMarEST, RINA<br />
    2. 2. Purpose<br />To explain choice of <br />Proposed 4th Year Project on<br />Deepwater Offshore Wind Installations<br />
    3. 3. Ewan Baird - Origin<br />1989: Stavanger, Norway, parents with BP Exploration<br />Father: BP Controls EngineerForties, Magnus, ULA, GYDA, Thistle<br />Mother: BP Technical AssistantForties Alpha Cofferdam<br />Step Father: Kongsberg MaritimeUK General Manager (Offshore)<br />
    4. 4. Wind Power<br />Sustainable infinite Source of Energy ≈ 72 TW ≈ 54,000 Million Tons of Oil ≈ 5x world Energy use in all forms<br />Current OperationsWorldwide capacity 160 GW≈ 340 TWhr≈ 2% worldwide Electricity Consumption<br />=> Current Operations 0.222% of total source!<br />
    5. 5. Wind Power in the UK<br />UK demand around 40 GWeWind Resource of Offshore Only 2000 GWe – 50x demand<br />UK Current: 2757 Turbines 4.113 GW<br />UK Proposed: 7000+ Turbines 25+ GW Capacity [Target 35 GW by 2020]<br />Target of 60% reduction in CO₂ Emissions by 2050Intermediate Target of 30% by 2020<br />
    6. 6. EU2020<br />20% of EU Energy from Renewable Sources by 2020,with unique target per EU country<br />UK Target 15% Energy Consumption from renewable Sources by 2020<br /> = 35%-40% of UK Electricity Consumption= 33-35 GW of Wind Capacity<br />
    7. 7. Rounds 1-3<br />UK proposed 3 Rounds of installation of Offshore Farms<br />Round 1 – Completed and OperatingShallow Waters314 Turbines, 962.4 MW Capacity<br />Round 2 – Under ConstructionIncreased water depth, still shallow2033 turbines, 7491 MW Capacity<br />Round 3 – Future ProjectsSome Deepwater Operations32000+ MW Capacity<br />
    8. 8. Deepwater Operations<br />Proved feasible by UMass in 1970’s<br />Increased Efficiency – lack of topographical features<br />=>Competitive capital costs against near-shore installations<br />Situated >12 miles, Reduced visual pollution– debatable!<br />No real solutions for deepwater. No proven Concepts<br />Experience lies in Shallow Fixed<br />
    9. 9. Project Focus/Objectives<br />With Offshore Wind Power moving into deeper water, the focus is to analyse and discuss deepwater concepts<br />Related Subsea Infrastructure<br />Round 3 includes deepwater regions, so a study of a suitable solution for application in this particular field of operation will be undertaken<br />Methods of offshore installation for turbines<br />
