Fred Olsen Windcarrier, Global Wind Service, Natural Power and Zephir Lidar are joining forces to provide operations and maintenance (O&M) services for the offshore wind sector.

The partners will offer inspections, major component exchange, integrated service campaigns, blade repair, high voltage management, life extension, decommissioning and repowering.

“This alliance means clients can source the complete range of O&M services through a single contracting body, which will reduce risk and management interfaces, simplify contracting and lower costs,” the companies said.

Fred Olsen Windcarrier chief executive officer Even Larsen said: “Together we have the people, vessels and expertise required to ensure offshore wind owners maximise the generating potential of their plant.

“Clients will benefit from a single point of contact with a dedicated programme manager who has access to more than 1200 highly skilled employees, each working to the same vision and with the highest commitment to health and safety.”
