Remote monitoring through advanced sensing, and asset surveillance using unmanned air vehicles robotics has potential to improve safety and reduce costs for the maintenance of offshore windfarms. Typically, a major share of the cost of offshore O&M is a function of accessibility during inspection, getting engineers and technicians to remote sites to evaluate a problem and decide what remedial action to undertake. Minimising the need for human intervention offshore is a key route to maximising the potential, and minimising the cost, for offshore low-carbon generation.
Marine-i will be hosting this Discovery Room on ZOOM in collaboration with the Ocean Power Innovation Network.
Agenda and registration
Speakers will provide an overview of the offshore wind market and the opportunity for deployment of floating wind in the Celtic Sea, detail latest CAA regulations and discuss the latest UAS technology. The purpose is to provide an overview of the latest thinking and providing the opportunity for SMEs to get involved and understand where there are market gaps and opportunities.
Further details of the agenda are available here.

Marine-i is an ambitious programme designed to enable innovation in the marine technology sector in Cornwall and the Isles of Scilly. The sector has been identified as an area of high growth potential for the region. The project is part funded by the European Regional Development Fund.
It is focussed on four interconnected themes: marine energy, marine manufacturing, maritime operations and marine environmental technologies. The Marine-i partners work together to stimulate and support research, development and innovation (RD&I) to help businesses exploit new market opportunities.
