Periscope Network O&M Case Study Report
The Periscope Network conducted market analysis in order to identify clear business and carbon-reduction business cases to support robotics and autonomy over the existing practices of Operations & Maintenance (O&M) in the offshore renewable energy (ORE) sector. The resultant report presents a comparative assessment of certain ORE O&M practices, evaluating operational cost, live carbon emissions (i.e. from vessels), and Health and Safety (H&S) risk of known tasks against Robotic and Autonomous Systems (RAS). The comparisons presented focus on the areas of subsea inspection and maintenance for floating wind and wave assets, as well as blade inspections and minor repairs for floating wind assets.
