Global Maritime; A TRULY DIVERSIFIED RENEWABLE ENERGY CONSULTANCY
Posted by: Global Maritime | Date: December 21, 2020
Although 2020 is a year that will be marked in history because of the Covid-19 crisis, it has also been a year with immense focus on renewable energy and sustainable energy solutions.
Global Maritime has fortunately been able to benefit from this focus as the demand for our competence within these fields has increased. We have been in dialog with new renewable technology inventors and stakeholders for numerous years, coming across numerous good ideas and solutions. Finally, there is now an increased willingness among investors to fund these ideas.
Below is a short and high-level summary of our involvement in various types of renewable energy:
Floating Solar: We have been involved in two different projects for big industrial players where we have assisted them with design of the floating solar plant, mooring of the solar plant etc. We have also assisted them with the verification of existing market designs and technology, to help find the optimal design solutions for specific locations.
Floating Offshore Wind: Global Maritime won the Marine Warranty contract for Equinor’s Hywind Tampen project that have just started. In addition, we are working with the Kincardine project (ongoing since 2018) where the first 9.5MW floater is being installed right now. We have been involved in four other floating offshore developments in UK/Europe where we have assisted with general marine engineering consultancy and verification services.
Bottom-Fixed Offshore Wind: Global Maritime has been involved in bottom fixed offshore wind within the better part of the last decade. We have now been involved in the installation and/or development of more than 5000 offshore wind turbines globally.
Although it might seem ‘corny’, we are proud to have this track-record and look forward to continuing our involvement.
Tidal Energy / Wave Energy: From an offshore perspective the primary focus has been on offshore wind developments the past few years, but we are now seeing an increased amount of interest from other types of offshore renewable energy solutions.
Global Maritime has been involved in several early phase concepts to ‘mature’ such concepts and optimize the technology involved.
