Robin Rigg maintenance work
CWind, a UK-headquartered integrated service provider in the offshore wind industry, has supplied Crew Transfer Vessels to assist with blade repair operations at the offshore wind farm for E.ON, the wind farm site owner at Robin Rigg offshore wind farm.
CWind has extensive experience in the maintenance and support of offshore wind farms and, in recent years, has undertaken contracts with other clients for similar work at Lincs, Rhyl flats and Lynn & Inner Dowsing offshore wind farms.
For E.ON, CWind supplied a MPC19 vessel and the SWATH Endurance. The MPC19 benefits from having a low operating draft, which makes it ideally equipped to operate in the shallow waters at the Robin Rigg site, whilst the SWATH Endurance enables technician transfer in rougher seas, together providing a robust solution for the client.
Lee Andrews, Managing Director CWind, stated, “We have a very strong working relationship with E.ON, having supplied our vessels to deliver a number of key operations at Humber Gateway. We were delighted with the contract win and are pleased to be able to support these works at Robin Rigg”.
CWind is a wholly-owned subsidiary of Global Marine Systems Limited.
Global Marine’s primary markets include telecommunications, renewable energy and power, oil and gas, as well as deep sea research. Global Marine holds the RoSPA Order of Distinction in recognition of 17 consecutive years of outstanding occupational health and safety results. Global Marine has two longstanding joint ventures in China, S.B. Submarine Systems and Huawei Marine Networks, and acquired the offshore renewables specialist CWind in 2016.
