1 hours
Event Description

60-minute session

Join this recorded discussion on the benefits of broadband wireless as the communications foundation for digital connectivity for offshore wind farms.

Through the use of case studies focusing on safety, welfare and efficiency, we examine the challenges, benefits, and role of a private 4G/5G network that connects workers, vessels, sensors and operations centers. Communications requirements during wind farm construction, as well as its operation, to improve worker safety and productivity, optimize costs and build a foundation for future innovation will be explored.

Speakers share insights on:

  • Key technical and commercial pain points
  • Personnel safety offshore
  • Private 4G/5G network benefits as a communications foundation for digitalisation
  • Lessons from field case studies
