With succesful initiation of OWL-010 this leads to the goals relevant to the Dutch Society:
Industry, Innovation and Infrastructure
Goal 9 of ‘UN Sustainable development goals’
The overall goal of this project is the development and construction of a worldwide unique combination of a special purpose ship, combined with a 3D motion compensated lift system, and thereby providing a solution for offshore wind turbine installation, maintenance and in due time decommissioning.
Goal 7 of ‘UN Sustainable development goals’
This project proposes a three tier business proposition leading to 3% Levelized Cost of Energy (LCOE) reduction for offshore wind parks. Thereby renewable energy becomes cheaper and thus this supports the energy transition from conventional energy towards renewable energy.
Decent work and Economic growth
Goal 8 of ‘UN Sustainable development goals’
Based on technical industry innovation, OWL Heavy Lift will start -up and operate a shipping company located in Rotterdam the Netherlands, with crane vessels sailing under Dutch flag. With these vessels OWL Heavy Lift will provide sustainable infrastructure required for offshore wind parks.
Responsible Consumption and production and Climate Action
Goal 12 and 13 of ‘UN Sustainable development goals’
In addition to the foregoing, OWL Heavy Lift will outfit their OWL-010 with a hybrid propulsion system, whereby traditional Diesel Electric vessel systems are supported by heavyduty battery packs. This technology will reduce total installed engine power and improve (reduce) fuel consumption.
