Expected Results

NEXUS will aim to optimise new more cost-effective SOV with a lower polluting impact, which will create substantial savings in the costs or wind farming and will result in the following main results:

  • A robust decision-making process that will result in reduced costs and effective management of business risk for the service vessel
  • The capture of the robust capacity requirement for a new windfarm service vessel for operations
  • The development of a new vessel concept for servicing offshore windfarms to the robust design requirements above
  • Specialised safety regulation for windfarm service vessels to improve cost effectiveness and operational flexibility compared to the current, generic safety rules
  • An evidenced business case for a new windfarm service vessels of which development will be exemplified in the project
