Joining forces to reduce offshore downtime

Natural Power, Fred. Olsen Windcarrier and SubC Partner have joined forces to launch www.Offshorewindspect.com - a new force in offshore wind turbine inspections which brings together a market-leading cooperative that is dedicated to reducing downtime.

Officially launching next week at Offshore Wind Energy 2017 in London, the new service will be offering clients a simple contracting model where they can pick and choose from a list of inspection services under one contract. This will offer lower costs and reduced contract complexity, saving time and lowering operational risk for clients.


Together the cooperative will deliver:
• Full inspection scope
• Less downtime
• Reduced operational and contractual complexity and risk
• Analysis and reporting
• Fixed pricing

Pieter dHaen, International Director at Natural Power, said: "By coordinating the service areas of each of our organisations under one agreement, Offshorewindspect.com has the distinct advantage of being able to pass on the benefits of an agile, responsive and efficient service directly to its clients.

"On-going inspection work is vital when it comes to maintaining, repairing and maximising output from offshore assets but often requires some of the fleet to be out of operation until work is complete. By combining our service offerings we can ensure downtime is minimised by coordinating inspections through one contractual interface, reducing inspection duration, and ensuring efficient and safe operations through close communication between vessel and inspection crew, thus also driving cost efficiencies."

To find out how this new cooperative can benefit your offshore inspections programmes, visit the team at Offshore Wind Energy 2017 from Tuesday 6th June to Thursday 8th June. Natural Power will be exhibiting at stand N-L10 and Fred. Olsen Windcarrier / SubC Partner stand N-F40.

Introducing RockIt Smart Slide

Introducing RockIt Smart Slide

Introducing RockIt Smart Slide - the ultimate solution for fast and easy installation of the rail-less RockIt racking system on composition shingle roofs. Smart Slide conforms to UL 441 and TAS 100 (A)-95 for wind and wind-driven rain, providing a super-strong watertight seal that is achieved through compression, in most cases without the need for additional sealant. The waterproofing sealant is embedded deep into the granules of the shingle, thanks to the integrated flexible foam layer that provides cushioning. This ensures a secure fit that conforms to any architectural-style shingle. With UltraGrip Technology™, you can rely on a secure installation, as it absorbs the movement created by thermal expansion and contraction. The pre-installed sealing pads are compatible with all composition shingle roofs, making it the ideal choice, even in ambient temperatures as low as 5 degrees.
