Installation

CWind has an established track record of completing multiple scopes of installation packages of work for offshore wind projects across the UK and Europe.

According to 4C Offshore, the UK already has just over 7GW of operational offshore wind capacity, the largest amount of any country, and a further 7GW under construction or with contracts secured. The UK Government’s announcement of support for an additional 2GW of offshore wind per year in the 2020s could deliver up to 16GW of new capacity, which would generate approximately 20% of UK power.

Offshore wind is increasingly being developed further from shore, in deeper water and harsher conditions, posing logistical, safety and installation challenges for new sites under planning and development.

Effective on-site management is essential for successful delivery the complexity of offshore wind farm projects. Fulfilling all of the essential project management and engineering functions requires extensive resources, to ensure the ongoing efficiency and continuous operation of wind turbines.

CWind has an established performance history of successfully completing installation work for offshore wind farm projects across the UK and Europe, and can provide these services as a full turnkey offering. CWind’s installation experience stretches across almost 600 turbines.
