Like any sector using evolving technologies, the offshore wind industry has suffered product defects and costly legal disputes. As design evolution continues, lawyers Steve Nichol, Theresa Mohammed and Helen Stuart advise on what to look out for when preparing project contracts.
London Array is a joint venture set up to build and run the 630MW offshore project. General manager Mike O'Hare reflects on the challenges faced as the project, fully operational since April, moved from construction to operations and taking advantage of each partner's experience.
The installed capacity of offshore wind in European waters has more than quadrupled in less than five years, from 1.5GW in 2009 to 6.5GW now.
There will be some individual success stories, but the likelihood of Europe as a whole meeting its 2020 expectations for offshore wind capacity lies somewhere between slim and non-existent.
