Key considerations when replacing offshore wind turbine components

When loading offshore wind turbine components onto vessels in ports, the condition of the harbour seabed is an important factor.

Out at sea, currents and wind conditions have a major effect on the positioning of the vessel next to the wind turbine. Dynamic positioning technologies are often very useful.

The preloading process includes testing whether the seabed can support a jack-up vessel’s legs.
