08: Operations – O&M Strategies

Offshore wind online training course

In this course we will discuss operation and maintenance strategies and strategy development

What you will learn:

Offshore wind operation and maintenance activities represent a big part of the total project lifetime costs. In this course we will discuss operation and maintenance strategies and strategy development, we will also have an overview of O&M activities and the outcomes of O&M optimization modelling. The course will then explore operation vessels, access solutions, and the latest developments in vessels for all aspects of O&M including crew transfer vessels, motherships, helicopters and jack-ups.

Who should attend?

  • Energy utility engineers, technicians and maintenance personnel who are or will be working on offshore wind energy related projects
  • Project stakeholders, operators and other professionals invested in understanding and improving offshore wind operation and maintenance activities
  • Professionals with a background in onshore wind, who wish to learn more about the offshore wind O&M in the U.S.

Alana Duerr: Director, Offshore Wind North America

Dr. Duerr is the Director for the Offshore Wind North America practice within DNV GL Energy’s Renewables Advisory. She has been in the offshore renewables space for the past 11 years, with a specific focus on offshore wind for the past 7 years. Prior to DNV GL, Dr. Duerr was the Offshore Wind Lead for the U.S. Department of Energy’s Wind Energy Technologies Office where she led the offshore wind R&D portfolio, including the Advanced Technology Demonstration Projects, the National Offshore Wind R&D Consortium with NYSERDA, and was a leader in the development and implementation of the 2016 National Offshore Wind Strategy. Dr. Duerr received her B.S. in Naval Architecture and Marine Engineering from Webb Institute, and her Ph.D. in Ocean Engineering from Florida Atlantic University. The combination of her education and professional experiences have allowed her to dive deep into the technology and research aspects of offshore wind, including project siting, resource assessment, plant optimization, installation, construction, logistics, and U.S. specific market drivers, regulations, and supply chain challenges.
