Interface Management for Offshore Wind Projects

The contractual set up in an offshore wind project requires proper interface management between scopes and work packages. The deliverables to close out interfaces include the exchange of information, hand-over of documentation, or physical components. For transparency, those deliverables are collected in the interface agreements.

Lautec’s specialists have both the technical and managerial skills to set up clear communication channels and processes for creating the necessary interface agreements.

Critical Interfaces

Each project is different, but typical examples of critical interfaces of offshore wind projects include:

  • Alignment on technical and permitting requirements
  • Design of wind turbine foundation both mechanically and electrically
  • Offshore power cable installation activities
  • Mock-up and trial testing activities
  • Offshore commissioning planning
  • Hand-over procedures for operations and maintenance
