Offshore Wind Scottish Supply Chain Capability | 5

Foreword Scotland has a 40 year history of delivering floating systems for the oil and gas industry in the North Sea and worldwide. Many of the products and services developed for this industry are also applicable in the emerging offshore wind sector. Scotland has continued to push the water depth envelope in offshore wind that first tackled by the Beatrice Deepwater Offshore Wind Demonstrator, which used our oil and gas experience and know how to develop substructure solutions for water depths up to 60 metres. This one project was responsible for showing that engineering solutions existed to enable the development of the UK Round 3 offshore wind projects in water depths up to 60 metres, and was a key enabler for development in these depths worldwide. Ten years on Scotland is again looking to extend the water depth for offshore wind through the use of floating wind systems. 2016 will see construction start on the Hywind Scotland project with Statoil delivering the world’s first array of floating offshore wind turbines in water depths exceeding 100m. This will consist of five 6MW Siemens turbines on a floating spar type substructure. Beyond 2020 Scotland’s ambition is to have the world’s first commercial floating wind projects. The aim of this document is to highlight a selection of Scottish companies from the wider supply chain to illustrate our capability in offshore wind. Many of our companies are involved in the aforementioned demonstration projects, or have worked on projects elsewhere in the UK and Europe, and thus have the skill sets to deliver the design, fabrication, installation and operation of floating and fixed wind systems. The requirement to deliver a cost down approach to offshore wind in Scotland and the UK has concentrated the efforts of our supply chain, assisted by Glasgow-based Offshore Renewable Energy Catapult, to innovate in the sector. The Scottish offshore wind supply chain can help develop and deliver these ambitious aims.

Atkins, with a proud track record in offshore engineering, offer a comprehensive range of engineering services to developers, fabricators, OEMs and financial institutions to support offshore wind development and assessment.

Services include: • Consents, planning and environmental assessment • Geophysical and geotechnical survey specification and offshore client side survey supervision and data interpretation • Foundations and substructure design for wind turbines and met masts • Floating foundation design for wind turbines • Foundations, substructure and multidisciplinary topside design for offshore substations • Electrical array and export design • Cable selection and installation assessment • Grid connection studies and assessments • Electro-mechanical and mechanical design and analysis of marine energy devices • Health and Safety planning and assessment and CDM • Project cost control • Project management Experience in Market Offshore Substations Atkins was commissioned by McNulty to undertake the detailed design of the Galloper substation and control hub platform. Atkins undertook complete structural and systems design and utilised a wide range of resources from across the company, including structural, utilities, electrical, architectural, mechanical, communications and safety disciplines. Fabrication and installation of the 2,000 tonne OSP, which transforms the electricity produced by individual turbines from 33kV to 132kV for transmission, was completed in June 2010. Atkins has since won a number of further offshore substation contracts for the design of the complete substation including foundations, substructures and multidisciplinary topsides. This includes more than 5 substations for Race Bank, Burbo Bank extension and Walney 3 for Dong Energy plus other wind farms such as Thanet and Lincs.

To complement, Atkins also offer full electrical wind farm services, such as substation design, inter array studies, cable design and installation. Currently Atkins are involved in an in depth electrical FEED study for a Round 3 wind farm in Scottish waters. Substructures Atkins has a great range of substructure experience and innovation, particularly within ‘jackets’ and monopiles. Atkins has worked closely with BiFab, the leading fabricator of jacket substructures for the offshore renewables sector, to substantially reduce the capital cost of offshore wind through the development of an innovative transition piece and substructure. Recognising that much of the cost of early jacket solutions was in the fabrication of complex transition pieces, Atkins and BiFab developed a smaller, simpler design that reduces fabrication costs by 30-40% based on large scale orders. A design which is being developed for Beatrice Wind Farm under the SSE Alliance Framework. Atkins have also carried out geotechnical studies and Client Rep services for Beatrice as well as E.ON Rampion Wind Farm. Atkins believe the concept will be the most costeffective solution for many Round 3 and Scottish Territorial Waters sites as well as many European sites planning to use larger 6-8MW turbines. For monopiles, Atkins is expanding the capabilities of the proven monopile foundation with larger monopile diameters and deeper water depths via the detailed design of a UK Round 3 offshore project. Atkins is also an experienced designer for Floating Substructures for Wind Turbines. We have been fortunate to be involved in the following projects: • Offshore wind turbine using a semisubmersible hull for offshore Portugal • Ocean thermal energy conversion using a semisubmersible hull for Hawaii • Offshore wind turbine using a floating hull for offshore Korea • Offshore floating multi-turbine platform for off the coast of Scotland

Offshore Wind Scottish Supply Chain Capability | 19

Further to the above, we are also a joint partner with Pilot Offshore Renewables Kincardine Offshore Wind Farm which is a floating offshore wind project off the Aberdeenshire coast in Scotland. Grouted Connection Remedial Works Atkins is involved in the full lifecycle of projects and offer services in the investigation and application of remedial solutions for grouted monopile connections. This experience has allowed a comprehensive understanding of the behaviour and design of such connections to be developed and feeds back into our substructure designs for continual improvements.

Burntisland Fabrications Ltd (BiFaB) was formed in March 2001 following a management buyout when it began using its knowledge and expertise of the Oil and Gas market to diversify into Renewables. It has since developed into Scotland’s largest fabrication company operating from three quayside locations Burntisland, Methil and Arnish to become one of the leading suppliers of support structures for offshore wind turbines in Europe.

Experience in Market Since completion of the Beatrice Demonstrator project, where BiFab delivered the two deepwater jacket substructures, the company has now delivered projects for the supply of a further 41 jacket substructures for: 31 off Ormonde Field Development UK – Vattenfall 6 off Alpha Ventus German Offshore Project – DOTI 2 off Greater Gabbard - Fluor/SSE/RWE 2 off Gwynt Y Mor - RWE Npower BiFab has also supplied tripod components to the Global Tech 1 project, located in German North Sea and an Offshore Substation Topside for Vattenfall on the Ormonde Field development. Mass Manufacturing During the construction of the two Jacket Substructures for the Beatrice project, Talisman, SSE and BiFab commissioned the University of Strathclyde to carry out a detailed study on the various manufacturing processes involved with the aim of maximising the total number of sub structures that we could build in a year. This study is now complete and we are aware of the final costings of the proposed new buildings at our Methil, Fife facilities. This proposal would take our current production capacity at Methil from 60 structures to between 100 and 150 structures per year. We intend to have this new facility 100% operational by end 2018. BiFab believe that Scotland’s proximity to the North Sea and Baltic Sea, together with the experience gained from the above projects, including expertise available at the University of Strathclyde and other educational institutions, places our facilities in a unique position to develop the world’s first mass manufacturing facility to produce large offshore sub structures cost effectively. This includes floating wind as well as fixed wind substructures We recognise that this is an expanding market and we are very keen to see this kind of technique be used more widely throughout the offshore wind industry.

Innovation – New Jacket Design BiFab / Atkins Based on experience gained from recently completed offshore wind farm projects, BiFab and Atkins have developed their own Jacket Substructure to support offshore WTG. This design is jointly 50:50 patented and capable of supporting a range of turbines from 3MW to 8MW in water depths of 15 metres down to 80 metres. This is a lightweight structure, with potential savings in both weight and manufacturing costs, along with the potential to loadout more structures per barge due to the reduced foot print at the base of the jacket.

MOOG provides advanced electrical, fibre optic and hydraulic slip rings for wind turbine systems.

Our innovative slip ring products are designed from standard modular components configuredto-order to help meet customer requirements for high-voltage electrical, fiber optic, and fluid transfer through a rotating interface. Moog also supply high bandwidth data multiplexing systems to help manage vast volumes of data over long distances via a single fibre optic cable. Experience in market to date: Wind turbines require delivery of power and data signals to the rotating hub by a reliable rotary assembly. These high performance components must operate continuously in harsh environments, often in remote locations, where regular maintenance and monitoring are difficult and expensive. Moog provides rotary products that are designed to operate efficiently in these rugged environments. Slip rings are commonly used in wind turbines to provide electrical signals and power for blade pitch control systems. For hydraulic pitch, Moog can supply integrated fluid rotary unions that carry hydraulic fluids across the rotary joint. Moog has innovative solutions in both of these applications. Optical data transmission is available using a complete line of Fibre Optic Rotary Joints (FORJ) integrated into the rotary unions. Fibre optic communication electronics are used to multiplex multiple signals onto a single optical fibre. Optical fibre is used to transmit many high bandwidth bidirectional communication signals throughout the turbine using various standard protocols. A noncontacting fibre optic rotary joint (FORJ) is used to transmit optical signals over the rotary interface between the hub and nacelle, and fibre optic electronics are used to combine multiple signals onto a single fibre and provide link monitoring.

Moog’s “no maintenance” slip rings utilise fibre brush contact technology and eliminates the need for frequent slip ring maintenance procedures -- no vacuuming of brush debris, no lubrication, no regular inspection for brush wear and no brush replacement making Moog products ideal for offshore wind turbine applications.
