Vattenfall Hails Uncrewed Vessels

The title of this post, is the same as that of this article on offshoreWIND.biz.

This is the sub-heading.

Swedish energy company Vattenfall conducted large-scale seabed surveys with uncrewed surface vessels at several of its offshore wind farms in Denmark, Sweden, and the UK earlier this year.

The article is a must-read and is describes how automation will be used in the future in the offshore wind industry.

  1. I’d be interested to know what the international Collision Regulations have to say about uncrewed vessels. I’m guessing they’re required to keep clear of all other vessels, so they must have sophisticated kit to monitor closing vessels’ course and speed. And what shapes and lights must uncrewed vessels display? Looking at the photo in the article, it seems only the standard port and starboard navigation lights.
