Maritime ‘crash barriers’ to avert collisions with wind turbines

Dutch maritime research institute MARIN this week tested three innovative barriers aimed at averting collisions between ships and wind turbines.

The research was prompted by the incident involving the Julietta D on 31 January this year. This drifting bulk carrier initially collided with a tanker before hitting a transformer platform and a turbine foundation for the Hollandse Kust Zuid windfarm currently under construction. A collision with an installed wind turbine carries a real risk of the turbine toppling onto the vessel, seriously endangering crew, passengers, the ship itself and the environment.
