Join us for our two-part weekly series commencing Wednesday 23rd February 2022 where we will discuss key aspects for consideration, in new and existing assets, to make them future ready for tomorrow. In part one we will examine the offshore industry and part two, onshore developments.
From research and feasibility studies to project execution we are supporting clients globally, both onshore and offshore, on their pathway to net zero and understand the crucial balance between conventional and low carbon operations.
What you’ll learn:
Each session will comprise of a 20-minute presentation followed by a Q&A.

Note: All sessions will be hosted on Microsoft Teams.
To ensure regulatory compliance, oil & gas operators will have to take steps to reduce GHG emissions from their facilities and optimise them for a sustainable future.
This session will focus on the offshore oil & gas market, using the UK North Sea as an example, and present the challenges inherent in asset decarbonisation and how our approach can provide an efficient way of robustly evaluating all options over field life, identifying the most viable options and the optimum road map to meet GHG emissions reduction targets.
From new operating assets to those going through decommissioning, understanding the risk to the structure for a forecasted storm is critical. Emergency responses such as evacuation, shut-in, halting maintenance or making an asset safe can be a costly exercise and can potentially create greater safety issues if enacted too often.
In this session we will present the Risk in a Storm JIP which uses an Ensemble Prediction System detailing how this risk is being managed more effectively benefiting ageing assets and decommissioning projects in all regions.
In recent years, there has been significant growth in the offshore wind industry, and this shows no signs of slowing down. With this huge potential also comes huge responsibility. The responsibility to design and operate assets to the highest safety standards. Whilst occupational safety is always considered, what about process safety? How can the fundamentals of process safety be implemented in offshore renewables?
This presentation will explain how the UK offshore wind industry must adapt to comply with the principles laid out by the UK regulator, and the benefits of this approach for offshore windfarm developments around the world.
As the offshore wind industry has grown in size and complexity, so too has the design of windfarms and foundations. For the past 20 years, Kent have been at the forefront - designing some of the pioneering, largest or most challenging foundations along the way.
In this session, we will present a new generation of tools that allows designs to be undertaken faster and more efficiently. From instant evaluation of changes in windfarm layout concepts through to advanced automation processes to speed up and refine design iterations, find out how these innovative design tools are supporting faster and more efficient designs providing a level of optimisation, saving thousands of tonnes of steel and bringing down the overall cost of developments.
The growth in floating offshore wind farms, especially in deep waters, brings with it some unique challenges that need to be addressed before these commercial scale projects can become reality – the transmission of renewable power to shore!
In this session, we will present recent research and developments on the design of floating substations required to support deep-water floating wind farms and the application of Multi-Objective Optimisation techniques to streamline the early-stage design of these key components.
