To support the development of the offshore wind energy sector, the NEXUS partners developed a novel windfarm 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 decisions about the vessel design.

Registration is free and required. Participants will receive instructions to join the webinar two days before the event. To register:
