Joining JIP to safely push operational boundaries

GustoMSC participates in a joint industry project (JIP) on leg bottom impact and partially jacked conditions. Due to the enormous increase in installation activity in recent years, and more yet to come, the installation conditions have attracted considerable attention, especially by operators in the wind industry. All contractors are optimizing their installation windows. Therefore there is a common basis for further development and understanding of the parameters involved, to reduce risks and optimize potential. 

GustoMSC is at the forefront of technological development on this topic. We have for several years already utilized our inhouse developed software to address the installation conditions. We participate in the JIP to support knowledge growth, industry awareness and to sharpen our own toolset to support further progress. We actively participate with advice in the technical sessions and have an active role in the steering committee.

As part of the JIP, DNV interviewed some of the participants and released an introductory article, see the link below.
