Description du produit
Revue de presse
"Intended as an essential reference, this book adopts the style of an in-depth technical seminar, discussing the major milestones of an offshore wind project, highlighting planning considerations, providing guidelines for anticipating potential difficulties, and sharing expert advice on solving challenges in the most efficient and safe way possible. The intention of the book is to create a robust basis for understanding the offshore wind farm industry. The author expresses the hope that, after having read the book, the reader will have an in-depth understanding of the offshore wind farm industry. The book is intended to help the reader make informed decisions on how to map out the main planning and execution route for an offshore wind farm project."--Mechanical Engineering Magazine, June 2012

I have found this book very useful as a first dive exercise. Excellent review of the fundamental regulatory frameworks, supply chain issues and overall, lessons learnt about planning and installation.
The structure could be improved, sometimes I felt I did not know which chapter of the book I was at, especially in the early parts. Do not expect a comprehensive review of the science, engineering and technology principles underlaying offshore wind farm projects. Rather, it is the project manager's view of all the subjects.
Very satisfied with the purchase, certainly worth the price of the kindle version.
This book covers the topics of environmental impact as well as how to implement such a project with examples from the UK and Germany. In Germany (as I alluded to in the last paragraph) wind power has been used for quite some time--decades. These days, wind turbines are frequently found in landfills, but offshore wind is still being analyzed, and the studies are discussed in this book. Issues such as permits, maintenance, training personnel, QA/QC and installation methods are included.
This book has much information from actual wind projects, and I think it's a must-read for anyone interested in the technology. I admit to being both attracted to windpower (the source is, in essence, free and in some areas, almost constant) and at the same time, it has inherent inefficiencies, environmental and maintenance issues that make it less the "free lunch" that some would think wind power could be. If you are on a citizen's study committee or any political body in your area that is considering wind power projects, you should read this book and give a copy to anyone on a committee that is studying feasibility.
The guide begins with an overview of wind farm basics, including turbine components, foundation types and installation options. They then cover the regulatory and permitting process for the major markets, focusing on the US, UK & Germany. Contrasting the various markets provides a sobering glimpse into the web of overlapping local and national entities with oversight and regulatory authority.
But this guide goes further, including progressively more detailed sections on planning, organization, preparation and project execution. There is a focus on the health, safety and environmental (HSE) duties, as well as compliance functions. Details are included on how they differ from their onshore counterparts.
In addition to policies and procedures, there are task assignments peppered throughout to correspond with the best management practices. The section on Interface Management covers the hand-offs and interfaces between the various contract parties involved in wind-farm installations. And further sections cover more in depth aspects of the installation process. There is even coverage of maintenance and repair. And environmental issues are covered down to topics as granular as waste management.
This guide is a comprehensive in scope, though it doesn't get bogged down in tangential details. It focuses on the essence of the best practices of offshore wind farm installation, operations and maintenance. It is extremely practical and can be used by students and public policy proponents alike. Those tasked with managing such a project will also benefit greatly from the best practices documented here, even if this is not meant to be an engineering level guide. I was impressed by how accessible they made this subject. This is a great book, and I recommend it.
