Offshore wind is a quickly growing focus area for renewable energy supply. Autonomous OPT solutions can provide cost-effective assistance through all phases of site planning and development through to safe and secure operations.
Utility scale offshore wind energy projects are optimized for efficiency and minimal impact to the environment and marine life, and to other maritime uses including commercial fishing and pleasure boating.
OPT PowerBuoy® and WAM-V® -based solutions can provide actionable intelligence throughout the life cycle of planning and development and continuing through operation to ensure operators can protect the marine environment and permit normal maritime activity while also protecting wind farm infrastructure investment.
OPT solutions can deliver significant operational and cost benefits, providing developers and operators with increased data analysis.
