  5. 5. Offshore Cable Installation, Engineering and Maintenance Ensuring cost certainty through integrated and risk-aware project management 28-30 September 2011 • Wolverton House, London Dear Colleague, The Governments recent announcement of a significant offshore wind expansion published in the UK Renewable Energy Roadmap provides has been largely welcomed by the industry. In turn, it provides us (the industry) with a challenge- to reduce the levelised cost of energy to the consumer. This is an exciting and welcome challenge and one that I am sure most of us in the industry will embrace. There are many elements to this, relating to all parts of the supply chain and throughout the life cycle of each project. One key area (sometimes overlooked) is cabling. It has been estimated that submarine cable laying accounts for between 7- 10% of the capital cost of the windfarm development, yet submarine cable repairs account for over 70% of all insurance claims on installed offshore windfarms! With major expansion plans on the horizon, these statistics highlight the urgent need for the industry to learn from their experiences on previous installations, and come together to develop a coordinated best practice approach going forward. Windpower Monthly’s Offshore Cable Installation and Maintenance Forum will focus on the urgent actions required to reassure investors in offshore wind power that the cable installation segment of the project can be delivered to time and to a technically high standard with the aim of ensuring maximum asset life. Join myself and key industry experts from companies such as ABB, The Carbon Trust, Global Marine Systems, RES Offshore and GL Garrard Hassan to discuss and debate the serious challenges facing submarine cable installation projects and discover solutions to the problems you face across the areas of route survey and engineering, vessels and equipment, cable protection, security of supply and integrated project planning. To reduce the risk of expensive downtime the industry urgently needs to discuss what plans should be developed for strategically located maintenance and repair facilities to enable cable repairs to be carried out in a cost efficient and timely manner. Has the time come for windfarm owners to come together and share maintenance and repair resources rather than attempt to go it alone and risk long periods of downtime and revenue loss? I look forward to seeing you in September at what promises to be the must attend event of the year for stakeholders seeking best practice technical solutions to the problems faced during submarine cable installation projects.
