Introduction: Vegar Neshaug (Fugro Norway) will guide you through the campaign of the different options for a metocean measurement campaign. In the belief that more accurate metocean data will lead to a lower risk surplus and therefore lower cost of capital (strengthening the business case) for an offshore wind farm. The aim of the study was to investigate the possibility of improving the accuracy of wind resource data at HKNWFZ.

A panel of the following experts: Eisse van den Oever (Fugro Netherlands Marine), Wim Klomp (RHDHV), Sofia Caires (Deltares) and Matté Brijder (Netherlands Enterprise Agency) will be present to answer any questions on the metocean measuring campaign.

Supplier of this campaign: Fugro Norway AS.

The results of this campaign:The objective of these measurements is to reduce the uncertainty of the metocean data at the HKNWFZ. The aim is to have 24 months of validated data measured at the HKNWFZ to be available a few months prior to the closing date of the SDE+ tender for HKNWFZ.

  • The new dataset will allow developers to carry out more accurate calculations of the annual energy yield. It will also enable the metocean models available for the wind farm design to be calibrated and/or validated - i.e. the metocean desk study is updated and validated with the data from the metocean measuring campaign. The metocean desk study is being closely aligned with the wind resource assessment, with measures being taken to maximise consistency between the two studies. In line with that, the data of the metocean measuring campaign are also used for the wind resource assessment of HKNWFZ.

The reports of this campaign: Monthly results from April 2017 to April 2019 will be/are being made available on offshorewind.rvo.nl. Available data is validated by Deltares and quality approved by Ecofys/Navigant. Final overall metocean measurement campaign results are expected in August 2019 with a final 24 months report.
