Requirements for infrastructure and qualification
Climate change and transition away from fossil fuels is one of the major challenges of our generation. The demand for wind energy rises meaning that there will be an expansion of offshore wind energy in Europe, particularly in the North Sea due to its favorable conditions and no infringement in land usage. The number of turbines installed yearly needs to double by 2025 and with increasing size of turbines and complexity of the projects.
This means, that we need to look at the commissioning of new turbines at the same time as on the question of decommissioning end-of-life offshore wind farms. Accordingly, questions of infrastructure or qualification, which have a long lead time, need to be addressed now to have sufficient preparation time.
Two reports have been finalized recently regarding the qualification and infrastructure requirements.

Report 1: REQUIREMENT CATALOUGE QUALIFICATION
Report 2: REQUIREMENT CATALOGUE INFRASTRUCTURE
