Repower EHS Lessons Learned Survey Results

Lessons for safely repowering wind facilities

An image from ACP's "Repower EHS Lessons Learned Survey Results" resource, including lessons for safely repowering wind facilities.

The wind industry partially repowered over 12 gigawatts of land-based wind energy facilities in the U.S. between 2015–2021. While the focus on repowering has traditionally been centered around market drivers and economics, this report highlights how to ensure the work is done safely.

In this report, you’ll find lessons learned for development, construction, and operation of repowered facilities from the companies who have done the work. ACP hopes that by sharing these experiences more broadly, we can help with the industry’s continuous improvement on safety performance.

Safety Alert System

ACP has a renewed focus onpreventing serious injuries and fatalities(SIFs) in the clean energy industry.

As one method to support this aim, ACP is launching a formalizedSafety Incident Alert Clearinghouseto share ongoing learnings across the entire industry. This clearinghouse will aggregate anonymous examples of SIFs and near-misses so that the entire industry can quickly address underlying risks that could lead to harm for workers in the industry.

Offshore Marine Transfer Guidance

ACP has developed Offshore Marine Transfer Guidance with the intent of being utilized as a basis for identifying suitable methods of transferring personnel in various functions while working in North American waters under an approved Safety Management System/Construction and Operations Plan (SMS / COP).

This guidance has been developed to provide a framework for how to execute safe transfer of personnel in the American Offshore Wind Industry. It indicates where further good practices or deviation is required in the American Offshore Wind Industry to provide a framework for how to execute safe transfers. This document also provides recommendations about the split of responsibilities within an organization to properly plan for and execute transfers.

 

This guidance takes into consideration the following transfer scenarios:

  • Transfer from vessel to offshore structure
  • Transfer between vessels
  • Transfer using walk to work (W2W) gangways
  • Identification of hazards and mitigation methods associated with marine transfers
  • Protection against drowning, including a risk-based approach to the use of immersion suits
  • Crane operated personnel transfer carriers and the use of man baskets for work over water
  • Gangways, including motion compensated gangway
  • Bridge or accommodation ladders
