The European initiative NEXUS comes to an end with an open dissemination online workshop that takes place the 9th of April from 10:00 to 12:30 CET

Collaboration between stakeholders of the offshore wind industry and the main projects that contribute to the innovation of the sector is essential to accelerate the development of renewable energy. One of these initiatives, NEXUS project, celebrates the 9th of April an open dissemination online workshop that will strengthen the connection and interaction between the main actors of offshore wind energy.

During the virtual event, set for the schedule 10:00-12:30 (CET), NEXUS partners will present a novel wind farm service vessel concept that delivers more efficient wind farm operation and maintenance, lower CO2 emissions and improved safety for the crew and industrial personnel.

The workshop will confer particular attention on the holistic modelling approach developed by the project to inform decisions about the vessel design. In order to assist to the event it will be necessary to have a previous registration. It can be made following this link.

With respect to the agenda of the initiative it will kick off with an explanation of the context of the project and the reasons why offshore wind farms service and maintenance operations need improvement. Then the partners will review the project objectives and development of requirements. It will be followed by some Q&A sessions related to the main goals and achievements of the initiative.

ROMEO Project (Reliable O&M decision tools and strategies for high LCoE reduction on Offshore wind), as an initiative funded by the Horizon 2020 programme with the main objective of reducing offshore O&M costs through the development of advanced monitoring systems and strategies, promotes interaction with other R&D projects such as NEXUS and will participate in the event.

ROMEO is backed by a consortium formed by several European partners: Iberdrola, Siemens Gamesa, EDF, RAMBOLL, IBM Research – Zurich, INDRA, BACHMANN Monitoring, LAULAGUN Bearings, UPTIME Engineering, University of Strathclyde and ZABALA Innovation Consulting.
