Sennen Spotlights: Construction

28th March 2024

We’re excited to share more about our new construction software which we’ve been working hard on in recent months. This new product is an important new addition to our offshore wind armoury as it extends our system beyond operations & maintenance so that operators can embed digitalisation from the get-go.

Spotlight 1: Overview

Our new construction solution has been designed for teams working on offshore wind farm construction, enabling them to plan and deliver construction tasks seamlessly and efficiently.  It greatly simplifies the complex logistical juggle of having multiple contractors performing different tasks.

Spotlight 4: Ørsted Case Study

Sennen was appointed to the South Fork Wind project in the USA, collaborating with global renewable energy company Ørsted to implement an innovative digital system. Leveraging Sennen’s existing tried and tested technology, this new system supported Ørsted with the planning and execution of the construction of New York’s first offshore wind farm.

As Sennen’s software has been primarily focused on wind farm operations and maintenance, this venture marked a significant milestone in the company’s product development journey. The system played a crucial role in enabling Ørsted to deploy teams and vessels for various construction phase tasks simultaneously, mitigating the risk of interference between activities conducted by different contractors and optimising vessel schedules. This was particularly critical for on-site multi-contractor management, where interruptions can lead to wasted resources and project delays.

With the automated system in place, Ørsted gained comprehensive visibility into contractor movements, streamlining construction activity planning and allocation, while ensuring efficiency and safety.
