Tackling safety in the design and operation of wind farm support vessels

As wind farms move further offshore to satisfy renewable energy generation targets, the distance of such installations represent significant safety challenges for both Wind Farm Support Vessel (WFSV) manufacturers and those within the wind farm project development chain. Many sea-going vessels are already pushed beyond both the limits of their design and crew's capability, yet they represent the majority of craft that are currently available to wind farm operators.
