As part of a consultation on the construction and operational requirements of an offshore wind turbine project, Airsys Professional Services were able to offer a solution that could cater to a diverse group of individuals across a large area.

With expertise in the communications field, Airsys were able to devise a plan based on a scope of work from the customer, ensuring that the needs of the project were met effectively.

The solution not only addressed the specific challenges of the offshore environment but also provided a reliable and efficient means of communication for the various stakeholders involved in the project. By utilising the services from Airsys, the project was able to benefit from a comprehensive communication system that facilitated seamless coordination and collaboration, ultimately contributing to the successful implementation and operation of the wind turbine.

During the consultation, the following aspects were taken into account:

Environmental Conditions: The suitability of the communication system for the intended environment was a primary consideration. Offshore locations are frequently subjected to severe weather conditions and corrosive saltwater exposure. The communication system must demonstrate resilience under these harsh conditions.

Coverage Range: Another critical factor was the coverage range of the communication system. Given the considerable distances between offshore platforms, it is imperative that the system can effectively span the required distances.

User Capacity: The system's capacity to accommodate the anticipated number of users was also a significant consideration. It should be capable of supporting the user load without experiencing overload issues.

Security Measures: Security was of paramount importance, given that offshore platforms are often targeted for security breaches. The communication system must be fortified against unauthorized access and potential threats.

Radio Infrastructure: The radio infrastructure played a crucial role in this context. This high-performance DMR radio, designed for rugged environments, was evaluated for its waterproof, dustproof, and shockproof features. Its extended battery life, along with additional functionalities such as GPS and Bluetooth, were examined closely.

Training Requirements: A comprehensive training program was implemented to equip system engineers and installers with the necessary skills and knowledge. The training program was tailored to the specific communication system design and operation requirements for the Windfarm project. This encompassed activities such as a factory acceptance test (FAT) and site acceptance test (SAT).

During the consultation, these aspects were thoroughly assessed to ensure the communication system's suitability and effectiveness within the given Windfarm project's context.
