Offshore wind turbine installation is done offshore to harvest wind energy and thereby generate electricity. This is done usually on continental shelf. A wind turbine installation vessel is a vessel specially designed for the installation of offshore wind turbines. Other than transportation, installation, and accommodation of offshore wind turbines, these vessels are also suitable to install other offshore facilities such as tidal current turbines, wave energy generators, met masts, and oil & gas infrastructure.
Increase in preference for alternative and renewable sources of energy due to rise in concerns of pollution and global warming has fueled the growth of the global offshore wind turbine installation vessel market. Wind energy is more at offshore rather than on land, hence offshore vehicles possess high growth potential. However, construction of offshore wind farms is significantly affected by hostile weather conditions and downtime due to extreme weather conditions is high, which retrain the market growth. Initiatives taken by the governments to develop greener sources of energy are expected to provide lucrative opportunities for the market.
