A virtual short course on offshore wind energyS. Himmelstein | January 18, 2023
A virtual course offered by the Society for Underwater Technology (SUT) will cover offshore wind energy technology. Two online interactive four-hour sessions are designed for professional non-engineers who would benefit from understanding the offshore wind energy industry, and for engineers and technical staff who are new to this sector or making a transition from another industry.
Held in conjunction with Cranfield University, the SUT course will be led by industry and academic experts from BP, Cranfield University, Partrac, GUH, MarineSpace, MCL Consultancy, the Offshore Renewable Energy Catapult and St Jules.
Topics covered include wind and the net zero challenge, including deepwater floating potential; planning, environmental studies and approvals; fixed bottom offshore structure design and integrity; offshore site investigation and seabed site foundations; construction; cables; floating wind; and completion, post installation and ongoing operation.
SUT is a multidisciplinary society that brings together organizations and individuals with a common interest in underwater technology, ocean science and offshore engineering.
