#Energy firms @ORECatapult and @Orsted team up on #autonomous surface vessel testing

The Offshore Renewable Energy (ORE) Catapult, the UK offshore wind research centre, is to partner with the Danish energy firm, Ørsted. The two firms will work to test autonomous surface vessels on offshore wind projects. The project aims to gain an approximate time scale for the implementation of autonomous vessels in the industry. The 18-month windfarm autonomous ship project (Wasp) could help prevent workers entering dangerous situations. Autonomous vessels could also save the industry 60% in operating costs by removing the human-factor. “Our industry is always looking for ways to reduce the need to send people offshore in a hazardous environment, at the same time as driving down costs whilst continually improving performance,” stated Simon Cheeseman, ORE Catapult’s Strategy Manager.
