LOC Renewables signs on to deliver offshore wind cabling expertise in Taiwan

Published 30th January 2018 by Emma Winsey

Longitude Engineering, the specialist naval architectural design and engineering team of LOC Renewables, has been contracted to undertake a month-long feasibility study on behalf of premier Taiwanese subsea cable installer, Woen Jinn Harbor Engineering. The agreement will see the Longitude team assess a cable lay barge for Woen Jinn and advise on the specifications and conversion work required to fit the barge for offshore wind operations. With significant natural wind resources and excellent conditions for offshore construction, Taiwan is aiming to develop 3GW of offshore wind capacity by 2030. In order to achieve this target, local firms are increasingly looking to... Read More

Peter Kingsland to present at Offshore Wind Energy 2017

Published 29th March 2017 by Emma Winsey

Peter Kingsland will be presenting at a breakout session at Offshore Wind Energy 2017. Offshore Wind Energy is the  largest offshore wind conference and exhibition in the world. The event is attended by thousands of leading and emerging players in the wind energy sector. Peter will be presenting an overview of how Longitude, working closely with Rampion and its contractors, developed an innovative analysis and modelling process to fully understand why large monopiles oscillate in relatively small wave heights; and to increase the operating window for their installation. Monopiles and turbines are increasing in size as wind farms move farther offshore.... Read More

Longitude pioneers analysis of dynamic lowering operations for wind farm construction

Published 13th March 2017 by Emma Winsey

Longitude Engineering working closely with Rampion and its contractors, has developed an innovative analysis and modelling process to fully understand why large monopiles oscillate in relatively small wave heights; and to increase the operating window for their installation. Monopiles and turbines are increasing in size as wind farms move farther offshore. At the Rampion Offshore Wind Farm currently in construction off the south coast of the UK, the developer was concerned that these large structures were beginning to oscillate in relatively small wave heights. This was affecting the operational window for lowering them into position. As installation limits are generally... Read More
