Jan. 24, 2012 - PRLog -- Get the latest information on the vessel and access solutions coming into the market and gain insight into the plans developers are making about their vessel strategy for both the installation and O&M of far-offshore sites at Windpower Monthly's Offshore Vessels & Access Forum on 6-8 March in London.

Hear from over 20 offshore logistics experts including DONG Energy, RWE Innogy GmbH, Vattenfall Wind Power, The Crown Estate, The Carbon Trust, E.ON Climate and Renewables, GL Garrad Hassan, Sgurr Energy, Gamesa Corporación Tecnológica, Germanischer Lloyd SE, A2SEA, Siemens Wind Power A/S, Ampelmann, WindCat Workboats, OSBIT Power and Lloyd's Register.

We have spoken with professionals from the wind and marine industries to put together an agenda covering the latest challenges, including:

- Safe, efficient personnel transfer: what access systems are out there? How can they meet your needs during installation and O&M? How can they work at 2m+ significant wave heights whilst keeping technicians safe?

-Vessel spread for installation: what are the latest concepts? How reliable are these designs? Will there be multipurpose installation vessels?

- Access in high sea states during O&M: when should you be looking at large or small vessels for maintenance? What conditions can the designs work in?  What kind of accommodation?

- Helicopters: to what extent are they essential for far-offshore sites? How do technicians feel about them? What evidence is there that they are cost-effective and safe enough for regular use?

Visit now for full event details on the only dedicated vessels and access event in the calendar.
