A6-Floating Offshore Wind course

● Hybrid courses will start from November 2022.
● Please select “On-site” or “Online” when applying.
● The maximum number of on-site participants will be limited to 12 (in order of application).
● Please note that this may be changed to an online-only depending on future circumstances.
● The on-site training (tour in Goto islands for offshore wind turbines, installation vessels, meeting with fishermen) to be announced.

Participants will learn about market trends in floating offshore wind power, techniques such as floating structures and moorings, and installation and maintenance methods.

This course was jointly developed by Vryhof of the Netherlands, a company involved in Oil&Gas offshore platforms and demonstration projects of floating offshore wind turbines around the world, DOB Academy of the Netherlands, an educational institution for working people, and Nagasaki Ocean Academy. Japanese lecturers from the academy and university professors specializing in naval architecture and ocean engineering will give lectures in Japanese. The course is a two-day intensive course on marketability, selection of suitable sites, fabrication/installation techniques, operation and maintenance, etc., which are different from those of the bottom fixed foundation type.

”On-Site” is a hands-on training program that is unique to Nagasaki, which has actual sea areas.

We are planning to visit offshore wind turbines and their installation vessels, have an exchange meeting with fishermen who live in harmony with offshore wind turbines in Goto, acquire data using offshore floating observation equipment and experience ROV operation, etc.

Here’s what some of the participants from across the country saying about the General Course.

“The course was very valuable in that it provided a more in-depth look at something that I had only vaguely grasped. I will make full use of the course materials because I think there are only a few textbooks that systematically summarize and provide up-to-date information.”(Shipbuilder/Heavy Machinery)
“It was easy to visualize the scale of the project because of the table of floating body sizes, etc. It was good that construction examples and the flow of construction were explained in an easy-to-understand manner.”(Re-energy developer)
“I was able to learn about global trends, and the many examples were very informative.”(Engineering)
“When considering floating offshore wind power, we tend to focus on the technology of floating foundations, but I was able to recognize that mooring is also a very important element. It was good to learn about specific mooring methods.”(Re-energy developer)
“The video on how to penetrate and tension mooring anchors, which I had been wondering about, was very clear and easy to understand.”(Engineering)
“I had been having difficulty finding materials that explained mooring comprehensively. It was very informative to learn about mooring in a systematic way.”(Re-energy developer)
“I would like to attend face-to-face lectures rather than web-based lectures, so that I can feel a sense of the students’ level of understanding and their feelings toward the floaters, and freely exchange opinions with them.”(Electric power company)
“I personally think that online is easier to participate in because it requires minimal cost (no travel expenses) and there is no tension when meeting somebody for the first time.”(Engineering)
“I was very attracted to conduct the Q&A session in a chat format. I sometimes have trouble understanding technical terms outside of my industry when I speak verbally, but if they are written in the chat room, I can check my questions and understand what is being said with more time to spare.”(Engineering)

Schedule, Tuition Fee, and Cancellation Policy

Target Participant

The course is designed for developers of offshore wind turbines, construction companies/marine construction companies and EPC contractors, floating structure manufacturers, ship operating companies, port logistics companies, material handling equipment manufacturers, cable manufacturers, and others involved in the development, installation, operation, and dismantling of floating offshore wind turbines. It is designed to provide intensive learning across the lifecycle of floating wind turbines, from market environment and site selection, to floating and mooring technology, installation, operation and maintenance, and dismantling.
*This course was jointly developed by Vryhof of the Netherlands, a company involved in Oil&Gas offshore platforms and demonstration projects of floating offshore wind turbines around the world, DOB Academy of the Netherlands, an educational institution for working people, and Nagasaki Ocean Academy. Japanese lecturers from the academy and university professors specializing in naval architecture and ocean engineering will give lectures in Japanese.

Goal

Understand how to select the most appropriate foundation for the ground, water depth, and meteorological and oceanographic conditions of the development site, and how to install it offshore.

Content
