RES Offshore signs 5-year O&M contract

Deal calls for RES to maintain the newly installed West of Duddon Sands met mast.

RES Offshore has followed up the successful installation of the WoDS offshore met mast with a contract to carry out the operation and maintenance of the met mast and equipment for the next 5 years. The mast was installed in August 2014 at the 389MW West of Duddon Sands Offshore Wind Farm in the Irish Sea for project owners DONG Energy and Scottish Power Renewables. The O&M services to be delivered by RES include both scheduled and unscheduled maintenance on the structure, platform and lattice tower, together with the maintenance of the instrumentation and power systems which also formed part of the EPC contract.
The West of Duddon Sands met mast award adds yet another O&M contract to RES’ increasing portfolio of offshore masts that it manages and operates across UK waters for clients, including SMart Wind, Forewind, DONG Energy, ORE Catapult and DONG/Scottish Power Renewables. In addition to these long-term O&M contracts RES has carried out extensive repair, maintenance and upgrade campaigns on four other UK offshore met masts making in excess of 20 visits to offshore met masts in 2014.
“Designing, building, repairing and maintaining offshore met masts and data collection systems all rely on our in-house expertise which we have developed over 30 years of wind measurement, including 15 years of offshore experience,” said Chris Morgan, CEO of RES Offshore. “We understand the value of high quality wind and metocean data and delivering this safely and with high reliably is what our clients want and what we deliver. We are looking forward to expanding our offshore met mast O&M portfolio further in UK waters and across Europe.”
