It could have been a showstopper for UK offshore wind. Rune Rønvik made sure it wasn’t.

Today, the Dudgeon and Sheringham Shoal offshore wind farms are up and running. But in 2008, the Ministry of Defence objected to their development. Wind farms would be a threat to national security. It was a showstopper, and the British wind industry was furious.
But then Rune Rønvik had an idea.

Two-thirds the height of the Eiffel tower—and weighing in at 46,000 tonnes. How do you transport a gigantic 200-metre-long spar platform that size halfway around the world? Read the story and see the videos of the transport, sailaway and hookup processes. (Updated)

Imagine if you could develop one app for ABS braking, another to help you park, and one more for GPS—and then put them all on a drilling rig. We’re doing just that, and all the signs are that it could revolutionise offshore drilling.

IN FOCUS: Drone inspection of offshore wind turbines

José Vega-Lozano

Picture this: You need to inspect Sheringham Shoal offshore wind farm, which has been operating for 5 years. 88 turbines, with 3 blades each. That’s a lot of blades, 264 to be precise. You could spend 44 days visiting each one by boat, climbing each tower, but that would mean 352 personnel transfers and 176 lifting operations. Or you could survey them by drone. That’s what Dale Symonds’ team did. It halved the time to 20 days—and what’s more, he says they’re the best images they’ve ever had.
