Abstract

In response to the specific requirements for UK Round 3 far shore wind farm maintenance operations, a new mothership concept design proposal is presented, that challenges perceptions of the working and living environment on commercial vessels through the implementation of Design-Driven Innovation. The interaction between innovation of design meaning and technology innovation can transform the market within an industry and even create new market sectors. An analysis of the offshore wind market identified the challenges of vessel financing compared to the oil & gas sector, as a unique opportunity for a common platform technology vessel. The concept presented has an innovative WFSV launch/recovery system enabling a conventional OSV platform to be adapted into a mothership role, resulting in a more cost effective O&M solution.
