Offshore renewables: New guide to reducing risk and ensuring successful outcomes

Black & Veatch shares steps to mitigate risk and deliver ‘as forecast’ performance for offshore wind and marine energy projects

Offshore generation of electricity has a leading role in the drive to decarbonise. Optimising Offshore Renewables Projects, is a new guide from Black & Veatch to help organisations reduce risk and ensure successful outcomes for offshore wind and marine energy projects.

“Regardless of technology, all offshore generation projects share the challenge of needing to succeed in some of the most unforgiving conditions facing any power generation assets. Our new guide offers insights for everyone involved in offshore renewables projects to better understand how to mitigate risk and deliver ‘as forecast’ performance,” according to Youssef Merjaneh, Managing Director Black & Veatch – Europe, Middle East and Africa.

Fixed offshore wind is currently the most widely used offshore renewables technology, but floating wind’s potential is being realized. Black & Veatch has many decades of experience in both. As it matures, marine energy - the most predictable form of renewables - is growing in significance; with Black & Veatch taking a leading role in many of the world’s most advanced marine energy projects.

As well as generating electricity, offshore renewables assets will make a meaningful contribution to the production of green hydrogen, another field in which Black & Veatch is at the forefront. Crucially, the company also has extensive real-world expertise in the mission-critical transmission element of offshore renewables projects.

In addition, the leaders of the company’s Marine Energy & Offshore Engineering Services team are helping develop many of the standards being created to nurture the offshore renewables sector’s long-term viability.

Optimising Offshore Renewables Projects is one way of combining and sharing the company’s leading-edge offshore renewables expertise. Click here to download Black & Veatch’s guide to Optimising Offshore Renewables Projects.
