Virtual presence for Inland and Coastal at Global Offshore Wind 2020
Inland and Coastal will be exhibiting its Operational and Maintenance Base pontoons for the offshore energy sector from its booth in the Enterprise Ireland virtual pavilion. Delivering bespoke design led solutions for safe vessel access, the team is looking forward to connecting with offshore windfarm operators, contractors and consultants.
Inland and Coastal’s installations are said to offer a cost-effective solution for crew transfer vessel berthing due to the durability and longevity of the pontoons, as well as the company’s ability to work with the existing sea wall, harbour edge or infrastructure.
“We’re excited to be taking part in the Global Offshore Wind event and showcasing our solutions for improved water access for the maintenance and crew vessels servicing offshore windfarms,” says Oliver Shortall, Inland and Coastal’s MD. “We work closely with the renewables companies and port authorities on each project during the design phase, ensuring we maximise use of space, utilise as much existing infrastructure as possible and minimise disruption of any commercial activity.”
On display will be three distinct crew transfer vessel berthing options: Heavy-Duty Pontoons, Concrete Breakwater Units and Continuous Concrete Pontoons.
Initially designed with commercial ports and harbours in mind, Inland and Coastal’s Heavy Duty Pontoons have proven, the company says, to be the ideal floating pontoon solution for a variety of applications. The ability to accommodate multiple decking systems, fender and freeboard combinations makes them the berthing option of choice for many pilot, fishing and CTV vessels. Recent projects include new CTV berths commissioned by Vattenfall for Aberdeen Harbour and CTV berthing in Fraserburgh Harbour for Moray East Offshore Windfarm Ltd.
Visitors to Global Offshore Wind can reserve a time to chat or simply text the team at any point in the chat box. Audio and video calls will also be available, when arranged in advance. Product specification sheets, company information and newsletters will also be available to save in the individual delegate’s digital bags.
