Motion assessment of service vessels at offshore wind farms

Using MIKE 21 Mooring Analysis and Frequency Response Calculator

An instructor-led online course

Offshore developers and operators rely on accurate assessment of working conditions at sea to support decision-making. This is why dynamic vessel motion analysis is increasingly gaining importance, especially during offshore wind farm servicing operations.

This course addresses how to understand dynamic systems in an offshore environment, transfer data to a mooring analysis software and interpret results. It also demonstrates how to set up a service vessel at an offshore wind turbine considering environmental forces such as waves, currents and wind.

Course modules and dates

This instructor-led online course includes a 1-hour introductory session and two 2-hour modules. The training starts 25 November and continues 1 and 8 December 2021 from 07:00-09:00 (UTC).
