This Edition combines part 1 & 2 of Building an Offshore Wind Farm - Operational Master Guide.The Operational Master Guide on Building an Offshore Wind Farm part 1 is the first book available on the market to specifically focus on the installation of an offshore wind farm. The book draws on the author's hands on experience of the transport and installation of the components for the offshore wind farms. The book also specifies the type of construction vessels used for each specific installation, outlines the required crew members on board and their mandatory basic training programs and explains how the workers travel to and from site. The Operational Master Guide on Building an Offshore Wind Farm Part 2 - Floating Structures is the sequel of the Operational Master Guide on Building an Offshore Wind Farm and is the first book available to the public to specifically focus on the installation of a floating offshore wind farm. Floating Offshore Wind Foundations unlock new renewable energy potential. Average wind speeds are higher and more consistent further from shore and around 80% of Europe's offshore wind resources is located in waters of more than 60 meter depth, where bottom-fixed offshore wind structures are not economically attractive. This means floating offshore wind farms can produce more energy throughout the year and have high capacity factors. Some of the largest potential markets, such as Japan and the United States, possess few shallow-water sites suitable for offshore wind development. Floating foundations could be game changers for power generation from deeper waters as they eliminate the depth constraint. Floating Offshore Wind Structures also open new markets Europe (France, Norway, Spain and Portugal) for the offshore wind energy industry and allows for the harnessing of great wind resources in shallower waters (as low as 30m) where the seabed quality makes bottom fixed offshore wind economically unviable.The book draws on integrated research and the author's experience within the sector and is a valuable educational investment designed with graphics and figures along with corresponding project photos which creates an easy read and provides the readers with a quick, but yet deep understanding on the respective installation phases.
