Inspections & Maintenance

Vigilant attention to detail, topside and subsea

It is critical, that inspections are performed by experienced, methodical experts alert to every detail.

The implications if a wind turbine is offline for unscheduled maintenance can be approximately £10,000 in lost revenue a day, and when factoring in the additional costs of support vessels, technicians and equipment for repairs it could run into the millions.
