The Danish seaport has teamed up with the Californian global infrastructure advisory firm specialised in port planning to develop a digital twin for Esbjerg's future offshore wind harbour.
"Port Esbjerg and the supply chain in Esbjerg have vast experience in supporting offshore wind projects, but we need to simulate the future to plan optimally today, and for this we are excited to work with Moffatt & Nichol," Dennis Jul Pedersen, the seaport's CEO, said.
"A digital twin allows Port Esbjerg to simulate every operation in context to future projects and optimise the infrastructure accordingly," Joshua Singer, Offshore Wind Lead with Moffatt & Nichol, explained the project's target.
The Port of Esbjerg has participated in the set up of 55 offshore wind parks, some 22 GW of installed capacity.
