Robotics, surveys and inspection for Offshore Wind [ORE Catapult Webinar]

07 July 2020
Venue: Webinar

This event has concluded. The presentation delivered is available below.

This webinar explored the main subsea inspection and survey needs of an offshore wind farm, and in particular how robotics and autonomous systems can respond to the challenges this presents. Subsea operations are costly and, in the case of diver-led operations, hazardous. It also presented some of the cutting edge technologies being developed by innovative companies with the support of ORE Catapult.
