Tom Fulton, Head of Renewables and Mooring Development at Acteon, explains to Recharge, the leading source in global renewable news, how his team leverages decades of energy industry experience in project development to deliver end-to-end execution for floating offshore wind.
Floating offshore wind (FOW) projects are challenging from start to finish, and many developments that are taking shape today are in uncharted territory. The complexity of FOW installations complicates project execution, and developers recognize that taking a project from inception to production requires dedicated and knowledgeable partners that can not only see the big picture, but also understand the myriad challenges that must be resolved along the way.
Tom Fulton knows what it takes to tackle a technically challenging energy project, and the successes achieved by Acteon and his integrated team demonstrate their ability to solve problems and deliver results.
According to Fulton, the biggest benefit of partnering with Acteon is working with experts who can contribute value across the complete lifecycle of a project, from conception, initial site investigations, engineering, through installation, integrity management and maintenance, to decommissioning. “Having access to this kind of comprehensive expertise means we can help optimize designs that deliver the best value in terms of total installed cost,” he says.
The Acteon team comprises geophysicists and survey experts, who can assess installation sites to determine the best placement for anchors, as well as engineers with the expertise in advanced systems and global analysis to provide concept selection guidance for moorings, cables, and hulls.
