NORWAY — RWE’s Sofia offshore wind farm has contracted Vissim to supply a marine management and communication package.
This will comprise marine optimization and planning software and a communication, sensor and networking arrangement, including Software-as-a-Service certification and induction management, permit to work and daily progress reporting.
All will be integrated with Vissim’s real-time decision support framework, covering vessel, aircraft and automated personnel tracking, working weather windows and warning-management options.
In addition, the company will deploy onshore, vessel-based and fully autonomous foundation-based sensor and communication hubs, networked to both onshore and vessel-based control rooms.
The contract relates to the offshore construction of the Sofia project in the UK North Sea, which will feature 100 SG 14-222 DD wind turbines and is due to be commissioned in 2026.
