is a Netherlands based service company of the Seawind Group
Since 2020 BlueOceans has been providing services to the different Seawind Group entities to scout, rank and select offshore wind energy projects. BlueOceans is the portfolio management and project development entity of the Seawind Group.
BlueOceans develops the early phases of the selected projects up to the point when each project increases its value and can be attractive for investors and partners to come in as co-developers via a special purpose vehicle (SPV).
Our portfolio is currently formed of projects under permitting for a total capacity of approximately 6 GW with projects in early development in Europe, East Asia and USA.
Outside the Seawind Group, BlueOceans offers its services to private or public organizations that are interested in early assessment and development of wind energy projects in Europe, Asia and Middle East.
Our mission is to develop projects and to provide services in a technologically agnostic manner working closely with the clients to select the best solution fit for purpose.
adhere to the Seawind Management System based on the CARE philosophy:
Commitment in our work
Accountability for our job performance
Respect for each other and our environment
Empowerment of our workforce
We gather historical, wind speed and met ocean available information & data on site conditions and surroundings to evaluate whether the site poses a feasible potential location and environment for an offshore commercial wind plant and/or whether further investigation is needed.
Our study provide a detailed analysis that considers all of the critical aspects of a proposed commercial offshore wind plant in order to determine its technical and financial feasibility. Feasibility may be defined primarily by return on investment, meaning that the project will generate enough profit to justify the investment.
Our dedicated experienced teams define all requirements for the front-end engineering design (FEED) and critically assess all wind supplier options for the selection of the right technology of the wind turbine units.
Scoping & Environmental impact assessment
The scoping we undertake entails the process of determining the content and extent of the matters which should be covered in the environmental impact assessment to be submitted to the competent permitting authorities of each country that the offshore commercial wind plants are planned. Impact assessments that are carried out on offshore commercial wind projects expected to have significant economic, social or environmental impacts.
Permitting applications & filing
We investigate, assess in detail and execute all processes required for the permitting of offshore wind wind projects that vary across applications and geographic areas.
Local content engagement
While we progress with the permitting of each project we provide a well-delivered stakeholder management plan with local content that offer significant opportunities for engagement and enhancement of the social and economic feasibility of the commercial offshore wind plant. Local content refers to the value brought through project employment, development of local workforce and procurement of local goods and services.
Integrated concept wind engineering
We provide a detailed and in depth assessment and integration review of the wind turbine with the foundation and the rest of the subsea elements. We deliver the necessary design and engineering (pre-FEED and FEED) of wind turbines and their support structures bottom fixed and floating.
Wind plant productivity analysis
We are quantifying the productive efficiency of a wind turbine, using power output and environmental variable data, measured either at the turbines or at a meteorological mast near the turbines. This analysis provides a very important insight in asset procurement, CAPEX and OPEX planning and wind turbine control optimization.
We assess in detail the different layout options of the commercial offshore wind plants. We compare the different layouts and we minimize expansion expenses by creating space for the sea and air fauna and wind flow within the given limits of the offshore wind plant. Optimal layout process include allocating space and arranging the offshore structures and other physical assets in such a way that the capital and operating costs are minimized and process efficiencies are maximized.
We profile the value increase of the project through each phase (Feasibility, Permitting, FID, Operation). We model the economic viability of the commercial wind plant coupled with the necessary sensitivity analysis. We undertake this process with the systematic identification, measurement and valuation of the inputs and outcomes of the alternative, and the subsequent comparative analysis of these.
