The Society for Underwater Technology (SUT) is launching an Offshore Wind Renewable Energy virtual course, designed for non-professionals who can benefit from understanding the offshore wind energy industry as well as engineers and technical staff who are new to the sector or transitioning from the industry others.
The course on February 1 and 2 in conjunction with Cranfield University, builds on SUT’s ocean and marine engineering and science training. It is delivered in two 4-hour online and interactive sessions led by industry experts and experts from BP, Cranfield University, Partrac, GUH, MarineSpace, MCL Consultancy, Offshore Renewable Energy Catapult (ORE) and St Jules.
Topics covered include wind and the Net Zero Challenge, including the ability to float in deep water; preparation, environmental education and approval; metocean is a weather service focusing on the UK and Northwest Europe, including deep water for floating technology; sustainable design under the sea and integrity; surveying of coastal areas and the foundation of marine environments; construction; strings; floating wind; and completion, post installation and ongoing work.
“The course was created during the pandemic and was very successful, where delegates from all over the world joined and benefited not only from our famous speakers, but also 30 minutes before and after the morning session that helped them ask questions and start. connecting with each other and with speakers,” explains Cheryl Burgess, CEO of SUT. “We look forward to welcoming people from home and abroad for two stimulating and highly educational sessions.”
The Society for Underwater Technology (SUT) is a multi-disciplinary organization that brings together organizations and individuals with a common interest in underwater technology, marine science and marine engineering.
