About the WINDTIME 180 Seminar

WINDTIME was launched in 2013 as a specialist contract for transferring personnel and equipment to and from offshore windfarm installations. WINDTIME, has its roots in SUPPLYTIME and following the launch in 2013, it became clear that SUPPLYTIME 2005 could benefit from an update, incorporating some of the updated provisions in WINDTIME.

To some extent, the contract is therefore more comparable to SUPPLYTIME 2017. WINDTIME and SUPPLYTIME 2005/2017 are closely related but the forms also have their unique differences. The choice of which form to use in the renewable sector will largely depend on the type of operations, and the 180 Seminar will highlight the most significant differences and similarities between the three forms.
